Hi all,

I'm suspecting an infinite loop in one of my COBOL stored procedures - HEY! IT CAN HAPPEN!!! and I was wondering if I could use the ASUTIME parm to kill the thread when the looping gets out of control. Until now, I've always used 'NO LIMIT'. What would be a useful rule of thumb for this?

Thanx in advance guys!

PS: yeah, I also built in a loop counter, when > 999 then ABEND....but I'd rather have the database kill the thread automagically than have to add extra programming. There's no default value for ASUTIME at this installation, so I thought I'd ask you guys.

L8R, eh,

Ralph
