Load/Copy/Validate OSS (Open System Services) Regular Files with SOLVUTIL

Original architecture

Figure 1 — Original Architecture


A large and growing U.S. gas and convenience chain has over 3,500 stores, and is rapidly expanding. It uses Verifone (formerly AJB) point-of-sale and loyalty rewards applications on HPE NonStop systems using SQL/MX.

Most of the application runs in the OSS space, and it uses OSS Regular files for TX logs. The chain has future plans for continuous application availability.


  1. No business continuity solution
  2. SQL/MX tables and the OSS transaction log present backup challenges (e.g., data types and volume)
