ReFIFO option in HIS ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We're using HIS server 2013 to connect to IBM iSeries (formerly known as AS400), and experiencing performance problems.

    IBM support suggests that it comes from REFIFO not being turned on. This is something that is negotiated during route setup between HIS and iSeries. It appears that the HIS is not requesting REFIFO be turned on during setup.

    We can't find how to enable REFIFO on the HIS server, and IBM can't help. We've been searching thru HIS server options, and thru the web, with no luck. Does anyone know how to enable REFIFO on HIS side?

    Best regards,

  • Hi,

    Don't know, but googling revealed this:

    Perhaps HIS uses IBM Comm software to talk to the AS/400?

  • IBM has an alternative to Microsoft HIS, named Communication Server, which documentation you found. Unfortunately, the parameters are not the same in HIS.

    Thank you for your search anyway.
