Provides the ideal suite of tools for developers looking to improve CA IDMS database performance and deliver true 24-hour availability
Syncsort Optimize IDMS solutions for CA IDMS provide operational advantages not available anywhere else. Many of the world’s largest CA IDMS installations rely on Syncsort Optimize IDMS tools to deliver solid reliability in critical production environments.
Syncsort Optimize IDMS makes it easy to reorganize or restructure your CA IDMS databases, without taking your production databases offline. Your CA IDMS databases remain available in update mode while you reorganize/restructure, avoiding production downtime. This means you can perform database maintenance tasks during regular business hours and without any critical time constraints.
Additionally, in complex multiple CV environments, it can synchronize and share CA IDMS buffers, preventing perceived “broken chains” or “dirty reads”.
Create multiple databases without the overhead
Syncsort Optimize IDMS allows the development and testing of ADS/O dialogs, IDMS-DC programs, and batch programs against production-sized databases, without incurring the overhead of duplicating the entire database. Syncsort Optimize IDMS’s Image tool enables you to keep only one copy of your CA IDMS database but operate as if you have multiple copies.
Syncsort Optimize IDMS is a unique tool that makes it possible to have a private “full-size” test database for each user or group of users, where each copy is sandboxed from other users/groups, consuming minimal DASD.
Innovative management tools
Syncsort Optimize IDMS’s Synchro, Share and XMVS tools offer a host of innovative ways for managing your CA IDMS databases across multiple CVs, including the ability to synchronize or share CA IDMS buffer pools among multiple CVs, local mode jobs, or any combination of CVs and local mode jobs, even if running on separate LPARs/machines.
Syncsort Optimize IDMS’s Megabuf Sequential PreFetch, you can use efficient multi-track or full cylinder EXCPs, automatically detecting sequential processing both forward and backwards. The tool does not flood the IDMS buffers with the prefetched data, so normal non-sequential applications are not adversely impacted.
