Natural Swap Pool

This part provides information on the Natural swap pool which is available when you are using either of the following TP monitors:

  • CICS
    (where the Natural swap pool is optional in z/VSE environments and not supported in open transaction environments (OTE) on z/OS)

  • openUTM
    (where the Natural swap pool is necessary)
