How to prevent the suspension of started task acids.

Question:

How do you prevent special acids used during the IPL from being suspended?

If they are suspended, the CPU/LPAR will not IPL.

Answer:

You can give the acid the NOSUSPEND attribute, so it will never be suspended.

TSS ADD(acid) NOSUSPEND

This attribute should be used sparingly. Generally speaking, acids should be suspended if they exceed the violations threshold and helps with security attacks.
