Limit on Dataset Pipes

Post by marguccio »

Hello there,
is there a limit on the number of Dataset Pipes which can run concurrently on a given target system ?
In other words, can I start 5, 6 or 7 Co:Z Launcher jobs concurrenty on z/OS, which all use Dataset Pipes on
the same target system to redirect data back to the launching z/OS ? Or do I hit a limit ?

Kind regards,

There is no hard limit although at some point you could run out of memory (region) in the batch job address space. Each concurrent one results in a separate OMVS server process being local-spawned in the original batch job address space.
