Secondary index Builder : 8GB HALDB OSAM support.
We do need this urgently for the following reasons :
We have huge IMS databases used in after sales activity (The most beneficial one in automotive industry) which must be extended to 8 Gb.
If SIU do no support this option, we'll have the choice between 2 equally inacceptable solutions :
For the time being we have chosen the first option, but our business won't accept this situation much longer, especially when the corresponding IBM product supports this facility.
We have other IMS databases which are growing significantly, which means we'll need this facility on a larger scale. The big data also exists on mainframe, in DB2 and IMS databases.
One last thing : This 8 Gb support existed since IMS V14. The current IMS version is 15.2. All the Broadcom IMS-related tools should have been updated accordingly several years ago.Best regards
We have had to keep going thru the split process, introducing some minor risk by adding the next part# to DBRC as well as adding to the IMS objects and job schedules/parms.
We very much champion that Broadcom IMS related tools should be updated to support HALDB OSAM 8GB !!All the best,
