Question: 

CA IDEAL CICS transactions can sometimes become idle or suspended.

What precautions should be taken if these Ideal transactions are being terminated?

Answer: 

Please refer to the CA Ideal  Administration Guide :

Optimizing Storage Management
Timeouts and Disconnects

... Session storage is only deleted after a timeout or disconnection if the VPE Purge Invocation code has been invoked.

If the VPE Purge Invocation Code (VPUR) is not executed after a timeout or disconnection, you can expect the following to remain:

  • User session Temporary Storage records allocated by CA IPC, CA Datadictionary, and CA-Ideal.

  • EDSA acquired for the updateable copy of the application program.

  • Use counts and enqueues performed on VLS entities.

  • Storage allocated by Datadictionary for each terminal accessing DD.
