Updates pending

To avoid a potentially lengthy response time when initially displaying or refreshing the Fault Entry List display, only history file information that is immediately available is displayed.

An example of a history file that is not immediately available is one that is in use on a different MVS™ image to the one on which it is being displayed. In this case, the information displayed is limited to the fault entries currently in the $$INDEX member of the history file data set, but does not include any new or modified faults that might have been added to the still cached $$INDEX member which is managed by the HFZS subsystem on the other MVS image. As soon as the other HFZS subsystem relinquishes control of the history file, the updated information is available for display.

If one or more history files are not immediately available, then a message is displayed near the top of the display as shown in the following example (❶):

This display lists the names of all history files for which the most current information might not have been available. To return from this display, press PF3, PF12, or Enter.

If the updates pending message is received, and the most current information is required, then this information is generally shown when the Enter key is pressed again to perform an implicit refresh.
