IBM Power Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The Power teams will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

*ESCAPE messages for SAVLIB

We have received MONMSG for CPF3795 in every SAVLIB running in our CL program:

https://ecurep.mainz.de.ibm.com/rest/download/28061%2C100%2C838/2018-04-
06/28061.100.838.SOURCE.txt?astext=true&fileSize=83568

But, when CPF3795 is reported saving an object, a dump is created and
the program is not running what it should run (GOTO TAGERR):

MONMSG MSGID(CPF4110 CPF3794 CPF3795 CPF5104 CPF5101 CPF5384 -
CPF4035) EXEC(GOTO CMDLBL(TAGERR))

Source here:

https://ecurep.mainz.de.ibm.com/rest/download/28061%2C100%2C838/2018-04-
06/28061.100.838.SOURCE.txt?astext=true&fileSize=83568


We opened PMR 28061 100 838 because we would like to know why the program is not running as expected.
We found CPF3795 is not listed among the messages you can received in the help for SAVLIB command, if that could be somehow related.

But IBM said that "this is the way it is designed and not all messages are suitable for MONMSG, and this is considered an important message to inform the backup is not complete and restore would
also be incomplete."

We open this urgent RFE to include CPF3795 in *ESCAPE messages for SAVLIB or prevent it.


Use Case:

All files can be downloaded from PMR 28061 100 838

    Did You Try ADDRPYLE to solve the problem?

    Escape message CPF9999 (Function check) is sent to the user program when a save operation fails because of an unexpected error that is described by CPF3795. IBM does not intend to change CPF3795 to a message that can be monitored or received. User programs should monitor for CPF9999.

    You could consider to, besides MONMSG, using RCVMSG to catch these MSGID:
