Question:

Why, in a system where the OS Health Checker service is NOT active, do I see the CV Health

Checker initialized messages?

HEALTH CHECKER: Infrastructure initialized
HEALTH CHECKER: Added check routine IDMS_SCRATCH_IN_MEMORY@......
HEALTH CHECKER: Added check routine IDMS_CPU_EFFECTIVENESS@......
HEALTH CHECKER: Added check routine IDMS_CHANGE_TRACKING@......
HEALTH CHECKER: Added check routine IDMS_ZIIP_USAGE@......

Answer:

IDMS interfaces with CA Common Services and will initialize itself even if HZSPROC (Health Checker) is not running on that z/os machine.

CA IDMS is not dependent on IBM Health Checker job running. We depend on CCS interface modules being installed on the appropriate LPAR so we can initialize.

Nothing will report because HZSPROC is not running.
