This profile parameter determines whether the Natural nucleus uses ACBX (extended Adabas control block) calls to access Natural system files instead of ACB (classic Adabas control block) calls if running with Adabas Version 8 or above.
||The extended Adabas control block (ACBX) is used for Natural system file access.|
||The classic Adabas control block (ACB) is used for Natural system file access.|
|Specification within session||no|
If you have Adabas link routine user exits that expect the ACB layout, you must set
ADAACBX=OFF to avoid problems.
ADAACBX does not affect Adabas calls submitted
by Natural programs. Their use of the ACBX is controlled by the Adabas version
specified as the database type with the profile parameter
DB=(ADAV8) for Adabas Version 8. The ACBX is used since
Adabas Version 8.
We recommend that you set
ADAACBX=ON. In this case,
Natural objects are loaded in chunks of 64 KB instead of 32 KB from the Natural
system file thus reducing the number of Adabas calls for large objects. In
consequence, you must consider the following:
The storage requirements in the Natural address space are increased by 64 KB.
LU parameter must be set to 64 KB
(default) or above.
The number of Adabas attached buffers may have to be increased.
