IOF Spin Levels

The IOF distribution MPI file is periodically refreshed to a new spin level. A spin level consists of the previous level with additional maintenance applied. A spin level is identified by the julian date on which it was built, so the higher the number the more maintenance that has been applied. The latest release 7F spin level is "2001 172" which was built on June 21, 2001.

IOF fixes that are applied to a spin level are included in the IOF UPDATES data set. They are marked as "applied" by user "IOFSPIN". This allows the IOF maintenance dialog to accurately display the status of all applied maintenance.

Use the IOF Maintenance Dialog to display the fix status or your system.

To determine your IOF spin level:

  • Enter "DVAR IOFSPIN" from any IOF panel
  • or look at IOF SOURCE data set member $$$LEVEL
