Reply with quote

Hi Experts,

The ACS filter lists at our shop is growing huge, and we want to rearrange the entries in the filter list in an efficient way i.e the entries that are successfully compared against more number of times should be at the top. Is there a way to obtain the statistics on comparison operations(successful and unsuccessful) being performed against each entry in the filter lists which could help us rearrange the filter list entries efficiently?

Possibly the ACS exits can help. See here https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSLTBW_2.1.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r1.idac700/acsex.htm

Consider other ways of selection if the ACS routines get too complicated. icon_exclaim.gif

I don't think ACS exit would be of any help here. ACS exits get control at the end of ACS routine execution. Using ACS exits you could 1. Override the constructs selected by ACS routines 2. Change READ-ONLY fields, and re-drive ACS routine execution. ACS exit will not get control during execution of ACS routines.

Apologize for the delay. Thanks for the suggestions. But I haven't worked on exits before. Yes the routines are getting way too complicated. Need to figure out a way to handle it.

Have a look at using DFP Segments for selection. If you use RACF Group, and in rare cases User assignments, you can give your ACS a lift up.

I can understand how complicated it can become. On one of the shops that I worked for, a person had apparently made some SMS enhancements using which we could have many sets of active ACS routines in a live allocation environment (Not just the ACS routines that we activate from ACDS). There were 8 really huge applications, and this facility would invoke separate sets of ACS routines for each of those 8 huge applications, and all other allocations would go through the ACS routines activated using ACDS. With this facility, we had a lot of flexibility, and we had the advantage of not complicating our ACS routines. I was just using that facility, and never really understood how it worked.

Interesting to know that you could have multiple ACS routines active for different applications.
