Live Virtual Classes
IBM offers education on a variety of z/VM, Linux on System z
and z/VSE topics in the form of "Live Virtual Classes" (LVC).
The day of the LVC broadcast,
you can see the charts and listen to the speaker "live".
In addition, you are able (and are encouraged) to ask questions of the
speaker during a Q&A session following the prepared presentation.
Please register for the section you wish to attend.
Each LVC lasts approximately one hour, including Q&A.
The day following each LVC, we plan to post the
the charts here in PDF format. Shortly thereafter we plan to
provide a replay where you can read the charts, hear the
recording and the Q&As.
You are welcome to read the charts or listen to the playbacks
when you can't participate 'live' or even if you wish to hear it
For automatic notification of changes to this page, including
additions to the schedule, click on the "Notify me" link
in the navigation section on the left.
To be reminded of these virtual classes via email,
please mention "Linux and z/VM Webcasts" in the subject
line of your email to Stephanie.

Analyzing CICS TS SOS Problems in z/VSE
Michael Poil, IBM
This session begins with a short introduction to the design of CICS
storage management. It explains what triggers an SOS condition, how it
affects CICS processing and introduces a potential workaround. It
identifies possible reasons for SOS occurring and actions to resolve
them. It explains what is required to be in place to capture the correct
diagnostic data for problem determination, and shows how to use DFHPD410
formatted dump output in conjunction with the appropriate CICS manuals to
find the root cause and hence pursue the appropriate resolution.
