CA SYSVIEW® Performance Management Frank White

2 Agenda What is CA SYSVIEW? CA SYSVIEW CICS Option Integration Example
What’s Coming in r12

3 Introduction to CA SYSVIEW

4 Introducing CA SYSVIEW
Base Product z/OS JES2 USS Parallel Sysplex Workload Manager System Condition Monitor Graphical User Interface CICS Option IMS Option TCP/IP Option WebSphere MQ Option CA-Datacom Option Event Capture Option

5 Data Collection and Monitoring
Environmentally friendly Low resource usage Typically 3 - 5% Customized collection levels User-defined exceptions Thresholds States Alerting and actions Central exception alerts Log for events Issue warning Trigger REXX exec CA Common Services CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation Send SNMP trap The infrastructure of CA-SYSVIEW has been designed to consume very few resources. In fact, in most sites, it consumes less than 1% of CPU. Staff can define what information they want to collect, and how often. The performance metrics displayed can be set for warning and critical levels for monitoring the desired state of your OS/390 resources.


7 CICS Monitoring Overall health summary of all CICS regions
Session #: Title CICS Monitoring Overall health summary of all CICS regions Full support for all IBM supported releases One product to install and maintain Single point of control for all CICS regions Does not use CICS resources CICS Status, Storage, Resource, Historical information

8 CICS Resource Monitoring
Global user exits Files Journals/Logs Kernel tasks LSR pools Programs SIT MRO/ISC links Transaction classes Transient data Terminals Timers Transactions VSAM files

9 CICS Status Active and suspended tasks Degradation wait analysis
CICS domains Dump statistics Connections Enqueues and enqueue pools Automatic initiate descriptors (AIDS) Interval control elements (ICE)

10 CICS Region Status

11 Degradation Analysis

12 CICS Storage Dynamic Storage Areas (DSAs) Subspace areas
Extents Subpools Elements Subspace areas Transaction isolation Temporary storage CICS storage types monitored

13 Dynamic Storage Areas Within this display, users can identify if a region is running short on storage. It includes management functions to help you free storage.

14 CICS Historical System interval analysis Detailed transaction log
Transaction interval summary Exception log Log historical records to SMF For historical CICS information, you can see information that hit exception levels, log our 255 recirds, and look into the detail of those records online. .

15 Transaction Log Detail
Another page down, and you find information about the programs used, the file names,

16 CICS Toolkit Resource management functions
Automated response time management Transaction cancellation at shutdown DFHTM1781 CICS shutdown cannot complete CICS dump management Suppression policies CICS SMF 110 record suppression Suppress records by transaction ID

17 Integration

18 Integration Example – CA OPS/MVS
CA OPS/MVS® Event Management and Automation Direct interface between products Initiate automated actions before performance or service levels have been impacted Performance alerts Performance data collected and correlated Take corrective actions Include powerful CA SYSVIEW commands as part of the automated response


20 Enhancements Some r12 Highlights CICS Highlights CA Vantage GMI
Session #: Title Enhancements Some r12 Highlights CA Vantage GMI Persistent Data Store Audit Events CICS Highlights

21 CA Vantage GMI Component
Session #: Title CA Vantage GMI Component Graphical User Interface (GUI) Design as a extension to existing User Interfaces Initial delivery is windows base CA Vantage GMI Servers to perform Display Filter Sort Graph ………

23 CA Vantage GMI Component

24 Persistent Data Store of Product Settings
Session #: Title Persistent Data Store of Product Settings The CA SYSVIEW persistent data store is a mechanism that allows dynamic updates to be saved or hardened. Data can be saved and retrieved from the persistent data store. The persistent data store is a new CA SYSVIEW facility that preserves changes to data objects across multiple executions of CA SYSVIEW and across an operating system IPL. This environment lets you do the following Roll out product settings across multiple instances of CA SYSVIEW running in the same system or within the same SYSPLEX. Maintain data objects that contain various types of data collection, statistics, and configuration options that control the operation of the product. Save, retrieve, and copy the data from the persistent data store.

25 Session #: Title Audit Event Events occurring within CA SYSVIEW that change resources. The Audit Event can view and control the historical audit activities. When an Audit Event occurs, you can do the following: Write record to SMF recording the event Write record to logstream recording the event Notify CA OPS/MVS of the event Issue a WTO message recording the event

26 r12 CICS Changes CICS Dynamic Library Definition
Session #: Title r12 CICS Changes CICS Dynamic Library Definition DFHRPL dynamic allocation with CICS 3.2 The following DDNAMES are no longer needed in the CICS region’s JCL XPFCPARM XPFCLOG XPFCDUMP (no longer used)

27 r12 CICS Changes Numerous Command Enhancements New Commands

28 Future Direction Product integration Wily
Session #: Title Future Direction Product integration Wily CA OPS/MVS (more applications) CA Vantage GMI Extensions Provide more intuitive analysis Thresholds Historical Inter-Operability
