Starting the task kill function manually
If you specified TASKKILL=YES in the CMRSOPT option table (described on Task kill function start up), the task kill function is started automatically at CICS startup either at PLT or on the first MainView for CICS INIT request.
You can also control the task kill function manually by issuing the FST2 transaction from a CICS terminal, a z/OS console that is defined to CICS, or from the CREGAGT view in a BBI-SS terminal session in windows mode.
To start the task kill function from a CICS terminal
- Log on to a CICS terminal.
- Type FST2 KON.
- Press Enter.
To start the task kill function from a z/OS console that is defined to CICS, use the MODIFY command to invoke the FST2 transaction with the KON option in the CICS region. This command is valid regardless of whether or not the BBI-SS PAS-to-CICS communication is started. For example, the following command starts BBI-SS PAS-to-CICS communications (if it is not already started) and starts the task kill function in the CICS region with the z/OS job name of CICSPROD:
F CICSPROD,FST2 KON
To start the task kill function from a BBI-SS terminal session in windows mode
- Log on to a BBI-SS terminal session in windows mode and request the CREGAGT view.
- Type KON on the line for the target CICS.
If the task kill exit is active and you change the task kill thresholds by using the CMRTTHR view, use the KRLD command to reload the CMRTTHnn table.
