VAX / ALPHA with Advant OCS
- Connecting a Host to the ADVANT OCS system
There are three basic methodologies of connecting a Host to the ADVANT OCS system.
The Multibus Gateway provides the highest thruput of the three. This includes List/TAG, and History type retrieval.
The CI Server on the IMS with Advainform CI on the HOST allows a TCPIP connection to the Server. This only allows DBMS type information, such as TAG and LIST access, offering both read & write
The third requires no Server or client Ci software. OSI example: OSI USERAPI on IMS prepares a transport like layer and communicates with the OSI software on the HOST. This would allow reading PDL and other IMS type records.
