for Quicker CA-IDMS Read, Load, and Update
ASG-Fast Access reduces processing time for CA-IDMS database read, load, and update jobs. It performs I/O by acquiring extra buffer storage and loading it by track– or cylinder-increments – satisfying program requests for I/O at higher CPU speeds, and reducing processing time.
ASG-Fast Access is a utility software package that reduces the CPU and run time of batch jobs used to access the CA-IDMS database. It installs easily, and can automatically adapt or be manually controlled to achieve the best performance improvement, using more efficient processing when reading and writing a track or cylinder in one I/O, and an added layer of buffering. It offers proven run-time reduction, even with the latest high-performance DASD. ASG-Fast Access can be installed across your entire local-mode batch job line without making JCL changes, for an instant performance boost and nightly batch window relief. The Database Administrator can use ASG-Fast Access in CA-IDMS Reorgs, reports, unload/reloads, etc. to shorten down time when database maintenance is needed.
