Hi Nelson,

Unfortunately, it's vendor software that I don't change unless specifically
requested by the customer.  While you're right that changing the initial
program to RPGLE that doesn't set on LR would help performance, there are of
course other issues -- size of the AS400, number of programs being called,
what those programs do, etc.  It would be interesting to know just how much
of a performance hit that initial CL is adding though...

This is exactly the method I use on all my triggers, except you never want
to use a CL as the originating trigger "shell" program because it, by
default, always ends like an RPG program with LR on.  Therefore, incurring
the very high overhead of recreating the CL program on every single record.
Go ahead and use an RPG program without LR as the "shell" and performance is
quite good.

I also write all errors encountered, including the "inactive" trigger
situation you mentioned, to a log file which I keep an eye on for early
indications of any problems going on.  If you leave all programs and service
programs activated, and stay away from anything that call CL's,  performance
is not an issue.
