Question:

What is the difference in using runtime option of CSI or VSAM in CA JCLCheck Workload Automation?


 

Answer:

The runtime option "CSI" has been added to CA JCLCheck to replace the existing "VSAM" option. The "CSI" option uses a new program to read ICF catalogs providing enhanced functionality as well as improved performance for CA JCLCheck.

The VSAM option is no longer maintained and should be considered obsolete.

At z/OS 2.2, an erroneous error message, CAY6089E DATASET dsname is NOT a PDS will occur if the VSAM option is used.   To prevent this error message, remove the VSAM option and the CSI option will be used as the default.
