Joe Lynn presented the new Buffer Pools by Area for data areas feature (BUFFER_POOLS_DATA) in today's monthly CA Datacom CADRE Community webcast. In case you missed it, you can find the replay information here.
During the webcast someone asked what PTF delivered this new enhancement so they could download and begin testing at their site. Please see this solution: LU00290 ENHANCEMENT: BUFFER_POOL_DATA SUPPORT.
We in Development are very interested in feedback from sites that test and implement this enhancement. We believe this tool for managing buffers will be very beneficial in many cases, but only you can prove that for yourself. If you have questions as you get started with the feature or can share your experience using it, please reach out to us. We'd love to hear your story!
Similar functionality for managing buffers for index areas is coming.
