Specific links you will want to bookmark for future use
Our clients who are transferring from Connect:Direct are using windows. However, because of the smaller lrecl of the file being transferred, it will not be compressed for the following third specification:
1) CD z/OS to CD z/OS transfer will be in block mode. 2) CD z/OS to CD i5/OS transfer will be in block mode. 3) CD z/OS to all other platforms will be in record mode.
It is strongly expected that the block mode will be improved to apply to windws. Alternatively, lower the lower limit of the values that can be specified in SYS1.PARMLIB (IQPPRMxx) to be less than 4mb.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
The customer's CD for z/os is routed to the zEDC because 99 % is the windows terminal, but lrecl is less than 4mb. The improvement will result in CDs being subject to compression.
