Issue a message when CDz reached NODE Specific Max PARSESS Limit

CDz does issue SVTM082I when CDz as node hit the node specific SESS.SNODE.MAX. However, it doesn't issue any message when it reached Max PARSESS. Could you add a corresponding message for this so that we can easily figure out it hit the limit?

It means these process will be put in wait queue without any messages letting us know why it's there, so how could we tell it's because of the reason that it passed Max PARSESS if the user came to ask us their file was not delivered on time. Am I supposed to count the number of active sessions and check PARSESS? It deserves at least a informational message telling us it hits the limit and process put in wait queue.

    An alternate solution to this is now available in Connect Direct for z/OS 6.1.

    A process that is waiting for PARSESS is now put in the WAit queue, with a status of WP (Wait for Parsess/class availability) instead of WC (Wait for Connection)

    It would be helpful to know when CDz is approaching the max threshold - perhaps at 80%.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that improvements could be made to improve the visibility into why a process has been placed in the WA WC queue.  We will accept this as an uncommitted candidate and will look to add it to our roadmap moving forward.
