Automatic Control of Sessions between the client and partners to avoid Wait Sessions

If the client has in netmap configuration session limit defined and the partner has in their netmap configuration session limit different from the client, it will leave the process in wait and sometimes depending on the volume, Connect:Direct will be in stuck.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it and your support case with my team. I see that support guided you towards configurations that were stable which I believe will be the best path forward for this request. Best practices would indicate that partners should coordinate the number of sessions they will allow so that excessive process queuing doesn't occur. From a technical perspective we don't have the ability to override configuration settings for a remote node if they exceed the number of sessions that your local node would allow so that guidance is the best option to avoid excessive queueing and potential errors when a node is overloaded with external session attempts. Because of that I must reject this request.
