Abstract

In a cluster/host system, a number of terminals are connected to a communications controller and the communications controller is connected as an input/output device of a host processor. The host has files and other resources that are not held in the communications controller, and data sets are transferred between the host and the terminals in batch mode operations and in interactive operations.

Transparent Cluster Host Transfer Mechanism

In a cluster/host system, a number of terminals are connected to a communications controller and the communications controller is connected as an input/output device of a host processor. The host has files and other resources that are not held in the communications controller, and data sets are transferred between the host and the terminals in batch mode operations and in interactive operations.

For a batch transfer, a remote job entry session is established between the host and the cluster. The files that are to be transferred are created in a punched card image. The user then prepares a command called SUBMIT that designates a job code language file in the host and the data file or files that are to be transferred. The user can then access data sets from the files using local cluster commands, such as LOAD. For interactive transfer of data sets, the terminal user uses the local cluster commands.
