SuperLink/MVS Logic Library Volume 2: Control Functional Unit


Cray Research, Inc.

SUPERLINK/MVS logically links a CRAY X-MP or CRAY-1 computer system running COS 1.16 (or a later version) and an IBM or compatible computer system running MVS XA 2.0 with Job Entry Subsystem version 2 or 3 (JES2 or JES3). SUPERLINK/MVS has 3 Functional Units. Each of them are described in an overview volume (The SUPERLINK Logic Library Volume 1, Product and Component Descriptions, CRI publication SI-0181) and also in a comprehensive volume devoted to that particular Functional Unit.

This publication is the second volume of the four-volume set. Volumes 3 and 4 describe the SUPERLINK Network Access Method (SLNET) and the SUPERLINK Applications Functional unit (SLAPPL) respectively. This manual provides a comprehensive description of the SUPERLINK/MVS Control Functional Unit (SLCN). It is comprehensive because it contains both the general description of the functional unit found in Volume 1, and a detailed guide to the code for this functional unit.

All four volumes assume the reader is familiar with both the MVS an COS operating systems. Familiarity with the International Standards Organization/Open Systems Interconnect (ISO/OSI) model is helpful but not necessary. Related ISO/OSI documents are listed in the SUPERLINK Protocol Manual, publication SI-0175.
