... so now all I need is GC19-6215-0.
I don't know the manual's title, but according to the comments in Hercules's "diagmssf.c" source file:

"SCPEND as described in GC19-6215-0, which is
also used with PR/SM LPAR RMF interface call"

(if that helps any)

Thanks.

Subject: Looking for manuals SA22-7098 and GC19-6215
I can't seem to find IBM reference manuals SA22-7098-0 and GC19-6215-0
anywhere. Does anyone have a URL where they can be downloaded from?
Thanks!

Perhaps the Linux source in arch/s390/hypfs/hypfs_diag.c can be helpful here ?

Cheers,

Not all of it...

Some OSes use other features NOT documented .. Especially some fields in
the DIAG 204 response.

Especially the non described "cflag" field in the CPU description for
the LPAR  (which I assume bit 3 means : Allocated/Online).

Thanks. I'm skeptical regarding how useful it'll be (I've looked at Linux source code before and it's typically a convoluted nightmare) but I'll take a peek at it when I get a chance.

I myself found a post that mentions "QLPAR" and "SHOWMVS":

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/bit.listserv.ibm-main/PDd29yCdOck

but I looked and neither were very helpful. :(

I'd really rather have the manual itself.

Reconstructing a (semi-accurate?) DSECT from various code sources is one thing, but having a copy of the actual IBM manual that was referenced when the code was originally written is the ideal.

A google search for "GC19-6215" (in quotes),
found this:

http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/8994/Virtual-Machine-Extended-Architecture-Systems-Facility-Release-2-CP-Command-Reference/

Giving the name:

"Virtual Machine/Extended Architecture Systems Facility Release 2 CP Command Reference"

I found a manual with a similar name here:

http://bitsavers.org/pdf/ibm/370/VM_XA_SP/

But it didn't have "SCPEND" in the index.
