IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Issue a message when CDz reached NODE Specific Max PARSESS Limit

CDz does issue SVTM082I when CDz as node hit the node specific SESS.SNODE.MAX. However, it doesn't issue any message when it reached Max PARSESS. Could you add a corresponding message for this so that we can easily figure out it hit the limit?

It means these process will be put in wait queue without any messages letting us know why it's there, so how could we tell it's because of the reason that it passed Max PARSESS if the user came to ask us their file was not delivered on time. Am I supposed to count the number of active sessions and check PARSESS? It deserves at least a informational message telling us it hits the limit and process put in wait queue.

    Thank you for your patience as we worked on this request. I'm pleased to announce that we have delivered this enhancement with the C:D v6.1.0 release which became generally available on 06/05/20. Please consider upgrading to start gaining the benefits of this and other enhancements that we've made in the latest release.

    An alternate solution to this is now available in Connect Direct for z/OS 6.1.

    A process that is waiting for PARSESS is now put in the WAit queue, with a status of WP (Wait for Parsess/class availability) instead of WC (Wait for Connection)

    It would be helpful to know when CDz is approaching the max threshold - perhaps at 80%.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that improvements could be made to improve the visibility into why a process has been placed in the WA WC queue.  We will accept this as an uncommitted candidate and will look to add it to our roadmap moving forward.
