  • 1. Problems getting strdbg to work
    I compiled my test C program with DBGVIEW(*ALL) and created the program module using CRTPGM. When I try to start the debugger using "strdbg malloctst" I get: Tried to insert duplicate key argument in index QSERVICE. Dump output directed to spooled file 10, job 117072/MQMADMIN/LVC70S1 created on system CANON400 on 11/02/06 12:13:36. My AS/400 admin has no idea what's wrong. TIA.
  • 2. struct pointer not set
    I defined a struct and did a malloc to obtain storage for it. I then initialized the vars within the structure. I initially tested the code on AIX and it worked, but when I recreated the code on the AS/400, it fails and complains that the pointer (to the struct) was not set. I don't see how it would work on AIX and fail on the AS/400. Any help would be appreciated. The snippet of code is: typedef _Packed struct varrec { short ll; char vrec[MAXBUFFL-sizeof(short)]; }varrec_t; varrec_t *vrecp; vrecp = NULL; vrecp = (varrec_t *)malloc(MAXBUFFL); if (vrecp == NULL) { printf("malloc for vrecp failed\n"); exit(1); } /* end if */ else printf("malloc for vrecp worked\n"); i = strlen(REC1); (*vrecp).ll = i; /* at this point it fails */
  • 3. Convert to PCASCII with EBCIDIC numeric representation for numeric values.
    Hi all, I am looking to convert Physical file data into a IFS file in PCASCII. I would like to see the numeric values in the ASCII file show the EBDEDIC representation of the numeric value. Ex: 101- shows has 10J I had done this before in V5R1 using the CPYTOSTMF command. I can't seem to get this working know, (V5R3). Not sure if I remember the correct way to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Jody
  • 4. Reverse Engineering a PAGSEQ (AFPDS)
    We have a report printed using AFPDS that contains several PAGSEG formats in the DDS source. I understand how segments or overlays can be created, but is there a way to reverse-engineer this so that you can see what is in a PAGSEG? The changes to this report to add AFPDS were done a while ago by someone else, and I have not been able to locate the original image that was used to create this. It would be nice if you could regenerate it, but somehow I'm doubtful it can be done... Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
  • 5. No connection with client access
    ok, Set the userlimit to *nomax but still can't get connection. When i start the emulator i see he is trying to connect but i get the following messages at the bottom of the screen. First: Conection made to server/host at <ipnumber> through port 23 Second: Hostname not found (I see a code 656 in the emulator screen) I can get a connection with windows explorer or operations navigator. What is the problem? Thx, Johan

lpar processor addition question

Postby z » Fri, 14 May 2004 00:45:30 GMT

hi, easy question for someone (i hope)...

we've done several hardware upgrades to our 820 and lpar's for memory and
other resources and the additional hardware is just tagged as new resources
and available to be deployed across our lpar's.

my question is, on the addition of a 2nd processor, is the new processor
treated the same way as memory?  ie, its just an available resource in the
"bucket" that can be assigned to the lpar's?  or does a processor upgrade
require you to have to redo your lpar set up?

thanks, jim

Hi Jim

It's just like the memory.....it comes available as "not assignes
hardware"...You can use it rigth away..IF youre MIN/MAX values are set right
in the past. Otherwise you have to set them right ...and IPL the primary.

Good luck

2.LPAR Virtual LAN Routing Question


I hope that somebody can help with this problem! We have an iSeries 270
which is LPAR'd and has two partitions. P0, P1

P0 has a physical network card with the address It also has a

P1 has a virtual network card with the address

So, is it possible for the primary partition to route between the

If so, what has to be considered in order to separate the 2 companies

4.question about multi core processors

   I'm thinking of doing a processor upgrade in the next couple of 
months.  Currently I have a single core Athlon BE running at about 2.6 
GHz.  I've got a fairly new (~ 5 months old) motherboard that is AM2+.

   I do a lot of video compression into h.264/mpeg4 using Nero Recode, 
and occasionally WinAVI Video Converter.

   I read recently that if you are encoding a single file, multi cores 
don't help you out at all.  Is this true?  Supposedly, you only get a 
benefit if you are encoding multiple files, because then the other cores 
can each tackle one of the files.

   I had always assumed that if you have 4 cores, each core would 
somehow do 1/4 of the work encoding a single file, and the computer 
would "distribute" the processing chore between the cores, allowing you 
to get done maybe 3 times as fast as a single core computer would. 
However, I've been told that is not the case.

   If this is true, then the multiple core upgrade would only very 
occasionally help me out at all, and perhaps I should just stick with my 
current single core.

   Anyone have further information on this?  Thanks!

5.Newbie questions about matched pairs of processors

I have some basic questions about matched pairs of Intel processors.

1.  Is it enough that the stepping numbers (sSpec numbers) are 
the same,  or do you need something more?

2.  Can you tell just by looking at two chips if they are a matched

3.  I always hear about matched pairs of Xeon and Pentium III's,  but
not so much about other chips.  Does anyone care about matched pairs of
Celeron 1.4 Ghz chips? Are there dual processor motherboards that take
those chips?
