Question:

 

What is the benefit of using the NDT for CPF definitions?

The NDT is the Node Descriptor Table.

CPF is the Command Propagation Facility.

 

Answer:

 

The recommendation is to have your CPF definitions in the NDT.

The advantage to using the NDT is it can be refreshed without having to recycle the CA Top Secret Address Space.

And CPF node definitions can be created or modified in the NDT record at any time after CA Top Secret starts. 

You can use the CPF related TSS MODIFY commands:

CPFNODE(nodename=STOP)

CPFNODE(nodename=START)

CPFNODE(nodename=REFRESH)
