Question:

How do I increase the the number of simultaneous users that can be logged into FAQS using the IUCV interface.

Answer:  

Add the users=nn parm to FAQSIUX

Example:

EXEC FAQSIUX,SIZE=FAQSIUX,PARM='USERS=nn'

The default number of concurrent users is 10. The maximum number of concurrent uses is 250 

 

Additional Information: 

The maximum number of users for FAQSMAIN is 84.  If you set the numbers of users higher than 84 for FAQSIUX, FAQSMAIN users will also have to be increased.

This value is used to allocate storage for a table use in dispatching. Eight bytes are needed by the system and 12 are allocated for each user; therefore, having 84 users requires 1K of storage, which is the default value.

example

// EXEC    DCMTASK,SIZE=FAQSMAIN,PARM='FAQSMAIN/USERS=86#FAQSAO#DCMTDRIV'
