To avoid losing time by having to rebuild all open access paths after a system crash, I am considering SMAPP. The IBM books advise you to change the journal (RMVINTENT) so that the system regularly cleans up its internal entries, but we have an application that deletes the receivers (very) often. Can we combine this receiver-managing application and SMAPP? How long do the internal entries reside in the receiver, and how long does the system need internal entries? Is it advisable/wise to use SMAPP without changing the journal (enter a number of minutes the system can take to rebuild access paths)? Or is there a way to put the internal entries in another journal than the one we use for our files, so that our application doesn't delete internal entries?
As per the IBM books: Access paths already in a user-defined journal are ineligible for SMAPP protection because they are already protected.
