Live Virtual Classes

Upcoming Past z/VM LVCs Past Linux on System z LVCs Past z/VSE LVCs

General Information
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 all again.

Topic: Analyzing CICS TS SOS Problems in z/VSE
Speaker: Michael Poil, IBM
Abstract: 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.
