CAFC is an operations aid for CICS users striving for quality service and high systems availability. The product organizes information to simplify (1) CICS region start-up and shutdown, (2) the activation and deactivation of entire applications and their supporting CICS resources and (3) the swapping of files and data bases between batch jobs and active CICS regions. To perform these functions CAFC monitors and enhances direct and indirect CICS commands that affect the status of resources such as files, transactions, data queues, DLI data bases and shared data tables.
