CPExpert Product Update 2000-2
This product update forwards updates to both software and documentation. The software update is Release 10.2 of CPExpert. The release number indicates that it is the second release of 2000.
This release (1) provides support for OS/390 Version 2 Release 10 (V2R10), (2) enhances the DB2 Component to provide analysis of DB2 Data Sharing problems and potential problems, (3) updates the DB2 Component to support DB2 Release 6, (4) updates the DB2 Component to support DB2 interval statistics in a MICS performance data base, (5) provides updated documentation on CD-ROM, and (6) corrects errors that have been reported.
I really appreciate calls from users reporting problems or simply asking questions. As I said in the original delivery letter for CPExpert, if errors occur with your installation, please don't waste your time trying to solve the error. Just give me a call and I will quickly fix the problem!
I suggest that you use the following steps to install Release 10.2:
Create a new PDS titled "prefix.CPEXPERT.V102.SOURCE".
Create a new PDS titled "prefix.CPEXPERT.V102.USOURCE".
Install CPExpert into the "prefix.CPEXPERT.V102.SOURCE" using the normal installation procedures described in the CPExpert Installation Guide.
Copy your old USOURCE members into "prefix.CPEXPERT.V102.USOURCE". This step should be done so you do not have to recreate all of your unique parameters. There are no changes to the variables in USOURCE members, unless you are exercising new options provided with this code.
Please note that you should specify %LET SMF74ST=Y; in USOURCE(DB2GUIDE) if (1) you license the DB2 Component of CPExpert, (2) you are running DB2 Data Sharing, and (3) you wish CPExpert to analyze information contained in SMF Type 74(structure) records to identify DB2 Data Sharing problems. The SAS data set containing SMF Type 74(structure) information does not have to reside in the same SAS library as the DB2 information; you can specify that it resides in a different SAS library if necessary. Please refer to the DB2 Component User Manual for details.
