Introduction:
There was a basic, but important, change in the SARXMS procedure.
PGM=EBCDRV is being used, rather than ExxDRV (where xx is the release number).

In the 14.0 procedure, what is PARM='DRV00E0'?

What is SUBSYS=xxxx and how is it used?

Are the SARXMS 12.1 parameters used documented in Release 14.0?
 
Environment:
CA View/Deliver - Releases 14.0 and higher
Instructions:
There was a basic, but important, change in the SARXMS procedure.
PGM=EBCDRV is being used, rather than ExxDRV (where xx is the release number).

In the SARXMS proc field PARM='DRV00E0[,...]', the DRV00E0 is a user-defined value for how the XMS server will be identified within the system.
The value is to be unique to each SARXMS task.

The SUBSYS parameter for release 14.0:

 . Is defaulted to SUBSYS=XME0.
 . Specifies a four-character MVS subsystem.
 . Does not apply to VTAM or IMS interface users.

The following is a link to the installation of an XMS task, including the parameter descriptions:   https://docops.ca.com/ca-view/14-0/en/install-and-upgrade-ca-view-and-related-components/install-and-configure-online-interfaces-without-ca-csm/install-cross-memory-services

The SARXMS parameter LONGWAIT (defined in minutes, e.g., LONGWAIT=15) says as to how long a user can be inactive in a session, before being terminated.
The EBCXMCTR table transaction EBCXMOPT's use of LOGWAIT indicates how long a user needs to wait to log on before the user's session times out.
