Using CA IDMS/DB Audit

CA IDMS/DB Audit is a software tool that allows you to examine the physical integrity of all or part of a CA IDMS/DB. In addition, you can direct CA IDMS/DB Audit to fix most of the errors found and to report the errors and the corrections. A report of simulated corrections can be examined before actually updating the database. Elimination of physical inconsistencies in your database sets the stage for smooth operations of application programs.

CA IDMS/DB Audit uses the following features of CA IDMS/DB I/O:
  • XA database buffers and control blocks
  • ESA dataspace support
  • Dynamic database file allocation
  • Unrestricted SEGMENT name usage as database names
Additionally, features of the CA IDMS/DB engine and the SYSIDMS PREFETCH parameter for read-ahead processing replace the read-ahead processing previously provided by FASTSCAN and EXCP I/O level processing previously defined by the GSDTPARM installation defaults.
