[WAITRESP = {1...32767} ]

The timeout for internal communication between Transfer CFT tasks, which can be any value from 1 to 32767 seconds.

Default values per operating system:

  • 60: Windows, OpenVMS
  • 100: UNIX
  • 600: z/OS (MVS)
  • 1000: OS/400 (IBM i)

This parameter is used for a synchronous exchange of requests between two monitor tasks during the initialization phase. After waitresp seconds without reply, the timeout is interrupted. A CFTS09 message is written in the log and the Transfer CFT initialization stops.

During the initialization phase, this parameter checks the time allowed for each of the Transfer CFT tasks to start. In the event of an insufficient value (case of a highly loaded computer).
