Hi All,
I've a statement in JCL

VIOCTL DD DSN=ACTIVATE,VOL=REF=SYS1.LINKLIB,
DISP=SHR,AMP='AMORG'

Can anyone tell me what this means?
I read that ACTIVATE is related to bufferpools..
But not clear...

Please comments...


Thanks,
Anand

I can not find any reference to ACTIVATE in the JCL reference manual.

As DSN= procedes ACTIVATE, I can only assume that someone wants to use a dataset called that.

Hello,

I'd suggest you talk with your system support people or possibly the storage management people.

One use of a VIOCTL DD is to improve vsam performance thru a product (IIRC) called VIOPLUS.
