LOCKTIMERC—Lock Timer Wait Value

LOCKTIMERC=nnnnnn specifies the number of seconds (default 0) that tableBASE should wait for a lock. When the LOCKTIMERC interval has passed, RC=71 is returned or the call abends depending on the status switch setting. A value of LOCKTIMERC=0 specifies that the process will never time out.

The lock controlled by LOCKTIMERC is used internally by tableBASE to maintain table integrity in the TSR. It is unrelated to the table ENQUEUE that occurs when a table is opened for write (OW).

This option applies to this region’s users, regardless of which TSR they access.

This option can be specified for all tableBASE interfaces except the VTS interface.
