Description:

The SET command specifies the combination of conditions Date Simulator should use to warp date and time.

Solution:

SET

  • Job type

    JOB (batch job)
    STC (started task)
    TSO (TSO session)
    IMS (IMS user)
    DB2 (DB/2 DDF user)

  • Job name

    1-8 character job name. A single asterisk can be used as a wildcard, either at the end of the job name string or instead of a job name to warp all jobs.

  • USER ID

    1- 8 character name. A single asterisk can be used as a wildcard at the end of the user ID. If no user ID is specified, a single asterisk will default indicating all user IDs.

  • JOB CLASS

    This optional keyword/value pair can be specified for batch jobs only and must be a single character (A-Z, 0-9, or *).

    If no job class for a batch job is specified, the job class defaults to a single asterisk.

  • START or CURRENT

    Start time mode is the default.

  • TIME

    TIME should be in the range of 00:00:00 to 23:59:59. If TIME is not specified, a default value of 08:00 will be used.

  • DATE

    Valid dates are in the range of 01/01/1900 to 12/31/2041. If DATE is not specified, a default value of 1/1/2000 will be used.

  • NOTIME

    This keyword specifies that the TIME macros are not to be trapped for the specified job.

  • CICS or CICSALL

    A value of "CICS" requires additional information set within CICS using the DTSM transaction. A value of CICSALL uses the Date and Time value specified on the control card to warp ALL CICS transactions in the region.

  • DB2DIST

    This keyword specifies that the job being warped is a DB2 Distributed Data Facility region.

  • IMSCTL

    This keyword specifies that the job being warped is an IMS control region.

  • IMSMPR

    This keyword specifies that the job being warped is an IMS Message Processing Region.

  • IMSBMP

    This keyword specifies that the job being warped is an IMS Batch Message Processing region.

  • STCK(program1, offset1; program2, offset2,...)

    The STCK parameter is used to specify which Store Clock instructions are to be warped. With the enhancement patch applied, there may up to 1,000* program/offset pairs.

For more information, see the CA Date Simulator User Guide which can be downloaded from the CA Support Online Documentation page. Select product Date Simulator, release 2.

* The documentation does not include the number of program/offset pairs that can be set with the STCK parameter. The original limit was 68. With the latest patches installed, an enhancement is included that raises the limit to 1,000 pairs.
