Long dispatch times for the SO TCB in CICS TS

You are observing transactions waiting to be dispatched on the SO TCB in CICS Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS). You see tasks using the SO TCB for as long as 30 seconds. You might see many transactions waiting for the SO TCB and this can result in the region hitting the maximum number of transactions (MXT) limit.
