IMS Logical Relationships (CM241G)

IMS Logical Relationships (CM241G)

Overview

Duration : 4 Days

Learn how to successfully implement and tune Information Management System (IMS) databases with IMS logical relationships. Examine in detail the various pointer options. Practice these skills in intensive machine-lab exercises.

 

Objectives

Course Objectives

  • Code the DBDs and PSBs for databases involved in logical relationships, including those using recursive data structures
  • Use IMS utilities to load and reorganize logically related databases
  • Choose logical relationship update rules based upon application processing requirements
  • Identify DBD coding parameters that are critical to the performance of logically related databases
  • Interpret the results of logical relationship implementation choices using the reports provided by the IMS Monitor
