MainView SRM Allocation
MainView SRM Allocation 7.9 and 7.8, MainView SRM StopX37/II 7.9 and 7.8
How can I suppress all MainView SRM Allocation (StopX37/II) activity for a started task or for a jobstep in a batch job?
To keep MainView SRM Allocation (StopX37II) functions from taking action on the data sets of a STARTED TASK, add the following statement after the EXEC PGM= statement of the Started Task JCL:
//PROIGN DD DUMMY
To keep MainView SRM Allocation (StopX37II) functions from taking action on the data sets for a particular JOBSTEP of a batch job, add the following statement after the EXEC PGM= statement of the jobstep:
//PROIGN DD DUMMY
***Please keep in mind that PROIGN is the default value of the IGNOREDD global parameter in the SMMSYSxx member, but it can be changed. Please check your SMMSYSxx member for the IGNOREDD parameter to see if you are specifying a value other than PROIGN, and if so, you will need to use that value, instead of PROIGN, in your DD DUMMY statement. If you check your SMMSYSxx member and there is not an IGNOREDD parameter listed, you should use the default value of PROIGN.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE IGNOREDD= SMMSYSxx global parameter:
IGNOREDD= SMMSYSxx global parameter
The IGNOREDD global parameter suppresses all MainView SRM activity for the jobstep containing the specified DD name. No MainView SRM functions will occur for any data set in the jobstep.
The ddName variable represents a one- to eight-character DD name.
Default: IGNOREDD= PROIGN
NOTE: The IGNORE parameter in the DIAG member will override the DD statement’s presence.
