This section discusses the operation of CA IDMS DQF and covers system requirements, storage requirements, and the use of alternate dictionaries.
System requirements 
System requirements for CA IDMS DQF include the operating environment, the terminal type, and the subschema.
Terminal Type
CA IDMS DQF can be used from an IBM 3270-type terminal (models 2 through 5), including a 3279 color display.
Subschema
CA IDMS DQF uses the IDMSNWKA and IDMSNWKG subschemas.
Security
Normal CA IDMS/DC security applies. You can limit access to CA IDMS DQF by setting security on your CA IDMS DQF task code.
Storage requirements 
CA IDMS DQF uses the program pool, the storage pool, and the scratch/queue area.
Program Pool
Because all CA IDMS DQF run-time modules are reentrant, only one copy of CA IDMS DQF is required to support multiple users. CA IDMS DQF is required to support multiple users. CA IDMS DQF requires 6K to 200K of program storage for an average session.
Session Storage Pool
A session storage block is used for communication between CA IDMS DQF modules. Each terminal user requires 10K to 200K for storage during an average session; the session storage is released at the end of the session.
Scratch/Queue Area
Detail displays create a scratch paging file. This file varies from one to several thousand pages depending on the size of the detail block. This scratch area is released at the end of the session, if you leave CA IDMS DQF using the BYE command. If you leave the facility by pressing the PF3 or PF15 key from the Main Menu, the scratch area is retained until you leave CA IDMS/DC .
Alternative Dictionaries
CA IDMS DQF is an CA ADS application, and the installation process adds the CA IDMS DQF application to the CA IDMS Task Application Table (TAT) in the TOOLDICT dictionary. You must update each additional dictionary under which you intend to execute CA IDMS DQF.
See the CA IDMS installation sections for instructions on updating the additional dictionary(ies).
