Issue:
Our CV is taking much longer than normal to startup.
Environment:
CA-IDMS, all supported releases.
Cause:
This can be caused by startup AUTOTASKs, particularly if they have the PREEMPT option set.
Startup AUTOTASKs are submitted between the following two messages:
11.56.42 JOB04436 +IDMS DC013006 V7 T0 ATTACHING STARTUP AUTOTASKS
11.56.42 JOB04436 +IDMS DC013005 V7 T0 CENTRAL VERSION INITIALIZATION COMPLETE
If a startup AUTOTASK has the PREEMPT option, then that task must complete before user tasks are allowed to run.
This can have the effect of delaying startup.
Resolution:
Investigate any startup AUTOTASKs defined for the CV and ideally determine if any have the PREEMPT option.
If it is acceptable for the application, change it to NOPREEMPT.
