2. TRACS Notification of System Rollover
Large Volume of Transaction Cause Nightly Production Rollover
TRACS mainframe is experiencing an unusually large volume of transactions (nearly 1,000,000 k) for overnight mainframe processing. This large volume of transactions cannot be processed within the normal nightly production cycle; thus, any TRACS transactions that cannot be processed during the normal nightly production process are being rolled over to the next TRACS nightly production cycle.
Users Experiencing Delays in Transaction Processing
If you have not received a rejection error from the nightly batch process, please do not resubmit the data and/or transaction files. HUD is monitoring the roll-over, and will determine the next steps if this significant increase of data continues.
