Question:
Is there a report on the occurrence of trouble etc. when keeping the dispatcher running for a long time?
Environment:
Plex7.x
Answer:
At this time, we do not report problems due to long-term operation of the dispatcher in this support and CA support database.

※ The IBM i dispatcher has been enhanced on Plex r7.0.

The CA Plex IBM i dispatcher implements a Socket Timeout parameter within critical
sections to avoid hanging dispatcher situations when one client fails to connect.

The IBM i dispatcher feature is implemented for both the YOBSYTCP and YOBSYTCPDP
dispatchers.

For more information about the IBM i Dispatcher Enhancement, see the CA Plex TCP/IP
Dispatcher Timeout section the online help.
