    Hello CA MAT family!

    Coming to you with news around CA MAT on behalf of Broadcom and CA Mainframe Application Tuner development team.
    Be sure to continue reading to find information about the following new features and topics:

    • DATASET SUGGESTIONS AND HINTS
    • RESTFUL API ENDPOINTS AND CLI FOR DB2 
    • CA MAT FUNDAMENTALS – DIGITAL BADGE
    CA MAT DATASET SUGGESTIONS AND HINTS

    This feature is an extension to CA MAT efforts to make the product even more useful and effective with performance assessment and issue resolution. Alongside performance tuning suggestions for COBOL, PL/I, and an extensive database of CSECT descriptors for internal and external subsystems (see previous community post here), MAT development team brings you new hints and suggestions for DATASETS.

    Using line command S for Suggestions (see Fig.1)  under DataView or DataView Details under TranView you can invoke a pop-up showing particular hints and suggestions for a given dataset that will help you with decision making or by which you may get inspired (see Fig. 2).

    Fig. 1 – Line command S for Suggestions

    You may as well utilize the ADDHelp command to invoke a content-sensitive help facility (see Fig. 3) that allows you to store your site-specific hints and suggestions for you and your colleagues.

    RESTFUL API ENDPOINTS AND CLI FOR DB2

    To support modern developer experience and provide an easy way to operate and script above the data that CA MAT can offer to you and to complement the Performance Benchmarking (formerly known as CA MAT Performance On Commit – see our PM medium blog here to learn more! ) MAT development team brings you a new extension to our REST APIs and CLIs with Zowe for DB2 performance data.  You may issue convenient CLI commands to retrieve DB2View (see Fig. 4) as well as to fetch particular SQL details (see Fig. 5)
