The priority of TASs should be set above priorities for batch jobs and should be set similar to the priorities for BMC Software online components that you are running.
MainView Alternate Access has the following hardware considerations:
The approximate number of 3390-cylinders that are required for the MainView Alternate Access target libraries is 32; for the MainView Alternate Access distribution libraries, the approximate number is 38.
BMC Software recommends that you allow 4096 K of private storage to run MainView Alternate Access. The default LAS and TAS procedures specify REGION=4096 on the EXEC statement. BMC Software recommends that you do not change this value.
