We are curently using a delay interval of zero in one of the applications in the CICS environment. This function is causing too much CPU usage. Are you aware of a routine, subroutine or command where we can specify a delay interval in milliseconds?
I assume you are referring to the overhead in establishing the Wait and then immediately ending it - in essense this function cost is fixed whatever the value of the timer interval. CICS does not have any facilities for waits/delays of under a second and a second is the granuality for such operations. I cannot think of any suitable mechanism which would dramatically reduce the functional cost.
