Is it possible to reorganize a batch database in ONE SINGLE step instead of running an Unload step followed by a Reload step? (Replacement for BMC's Fast Reorg Facility FRF)


One-step reorganization is already available, but so far the database to be reorganized had to be allocated to an online system. 'Full Function Online Reorg' (FFOR), which is part of CA Database Organizer for IMS for z/OS (DBO), can be used to reorganize the database concurrently to being accessed by an online system. Our competition (BMC) offers a tool which enables ONE-STEP batch reorganizations against databases being 'offline' (Fast Reorg Facility FRF).

Beginning with release r11.5 SP0 and PTF UIDE140, DBO allows running a ONE-STEP reorganization against a batch database by executing DBO Unload and using execution options DIRECTRELOAD and OLDDDNAMEMASK.

This example is a one-step reorganization of a HIDAM database which has 1 secondary index:

//REORG    EXEC PGM=IDIDBO,REGION=6M                           
//STEPLIB  DD  DSN=ca.loadlib,DISP=SHR

//DFSRESLB DD  DSN=ims.reslib,DISP=SHR
