Marist College and the ECC for the 8th Annual Conference

In mid-June, I traveled to Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and attended the annual Enterprise Computing Community (ECC) Conference. This was my second time and the eighth for the ECC. Over the next few months, I plan to write about the presentations I heard and send some reports from the people that I met and interviewed in the field. I’m not going to do it all at once, instead I’ll spread it out to keep the memory of this dynamic experience alive in my mind and to encourage some of you to sign up for next year’s conference.

This week, I’m going to share a super-secret enhancement in the 7.3 release.  The Display Job Log (DSPJOBLOG) command was enhanced with two new parameters: MSGF and DUPJOBOPT.

Got Any IBM i Enhancement Ideas?

We've written before about the RFE (Request for Enhancement) process specifically for RDi. It's a simple way for RDi users like us to make suggestions for product improvements and cast votes for suggestions made by others. The process has been proven to work. All the recent releases of RDi listed the RFEs that were implemented. Of course, just because you think a suggestion is great and even if it has a respectable number of votes, it still may take a while to be implemented. For example, we still have our fingers crossed for the RDi RFE that has been at the top of our personal favorites list for a long time now - to be able to run RDi natively on our Macs.

Fresh IBM i Messages

In the few months since the IBM i 7.3 announcement, many of us have been traveling to conferences and user group meetings, participating in virtual conferences or hosting webinars, and some of us have even been writing blogs. (OK, not me so much on that last one, but the rest of it, for sure.)

Best Practices for Tuning Local and Group Bufferpools

During May's IDUG NA conference, I attended a session by IBM's John Campbell. A question came up on how to size and configure local and group bufferpools. John mentioned that a presentation he'd given on this in 2013 is available as a webcast.
