Sequential Connection Options

Sequential Connection Options

Use SEQ connection options to define a connection to a sequential z/OS data set.
Enter connection options in the following format:
... -o option_name=value option_name=value ...
To enter multiple options, separate them with a space. To enter a value that contains a space or other non-alphanumeric character, enclose the value in quotation marks.
The following table describes SEQ connection options for infacmd isp CreateConnection and UpdateConnection commands:
Required. Code to read from or write to the sequential file. Use the ISO code page name, such as ISO-8859-6. The code page name is not case sensitive.
Optional. Determines the number of records in the storage array for the threads when the worker threads value is greater than 0. Valid values are from 1 through 5000. Default is 25.
Optional. Compresses the data to decrease the amount of data that Informatica applications write over the network. True or false. Default is false.
Optional. Level of encryption. If you specify AES for the EncryptionType option, specify one of the following values to indicate the level of AES encryption:
  • 1. Use a 128-bit encryption key.
  • 2. Use a 192-bit encryption key.
  • 3. Use a 256-bit encryption key.
Default is 1.
If you specify None for encryption type, the Data Integration Service ignores the encryption level value.
Optional. Enter one of the following values for the encryption type:
  • None
  • AES
Default is None.
Optional. Controls whether to use encryption. Specify one of the following values:
  • None
  • AES
Default is None.
Optional. If true, the pacing size value represents a number of rows. If false, the pacing size represents kilobytes. Default is false.
Location of the PowerExchange Listener node that can connect to the data source. The location is defined in the first parameter of the NODE statement in the PowerExchange dbmover.cfg configuration file.
Optional. Moves bulk data processing from the data source machine to the Data Integration Service machine.
Enter one of the following values:
  • Auto. The Data Integration Service determines whether to use offload processing.
  • Yes. Use offload processing.
  • No. Do not use offload processing.
Default is Auto.
Optional. Slows the data transfer rate in order to reduce bottlenecks. The lower the value, the greater the session performance. Minimum value is 0. Enter 0 for optimal performance. Default is 0.
Optional. Number of threads that the Data Integration Service uses to process bulk data when offload processing is enabled. For optimal performance, this value should not exceed the number of available processors on the Data Integration Service machine. Valid values are 1 through 64. Default is 0, which disables multithreading.
Enter one of the following write modes:
  • CONFIRMWRITEON. Sends data to the Data Integration Service and waits for a success/no success response before sending more data.
  • CONFIRMWRITEOFF. Sends data to the Data Integration Service without waiting for a success/no success response. Use this option when the target table can be reloaded if an error occurs.
  • ASYNCHRONOUSWITHFAULTT. Sends data to the Data Integration Service asynchronously with the ability to detect errors.
Optional. Enables connection pooling. When you enable connection pooling, the connection pool retains idle connection instances in memory. When you disable connection pooling, the Data Integration Service stops all pooling activity. True or false. Default is false.
Optional. Maximum number of idle connections instances that the Data Integration Service maintains for a database connection. Set this value to be more than the minimum number of idle connection instances. Default is 15.
Optional. Number of seconds that a connection exceeding the minimum number of connection instances can remain idle before the connection pool drops it. The connection pool ignores the idletime when it does not exceed the minimum number of idle connection instances. Default is 120.
Optional. Minimum number of idle connection instances that the pool maintains for a database connection. Set this value to be equal to or less than the idle connection pool size. Default is 0.
