    IDMS data collection enhancement and ADS support.

    Making IDMS monitoring and subsequent analysis more capable and improving usability across our users was the clear goal of this new feature.

    This feature brings a new ability to register ADS listings (both manually and dynamically) to help you to analyze your IDMS ADS workloads efficiently, allowing easy correlation of performance tuning data directly to a statement. See figures 1. – 3.

    New data records are now collected and displayed in separate fields such as Process name and ADS SEQuence, Task ID, Run-Unit ID that are, for better analytical insight, now displayed in decimal format.

    These data are complemented with new display panels: Database and SQL Statistics and Run Unit Statistics information and IDMS Dispatch state (ADSO). See figures 4.- 6.

    Most of the newly added options are available for IDMS release 19.0 and higher. Should you seek more information please refer to MAT documentation here: Identify Delays in an IDMS Environment
    Be sure to check out a short video introducing this functionality.

    This enhancement is available via PTF #LU04724


    PMA automatic import of batch reports (MAT -> PMA)

    This feature enables PMA users with automatic import of Batch reports upon every MAT measurement. Traditionally PMA users had to utilize the APCYJLST import program to run manually or submit it on a set schedule. Newly you may configure job APCYBLST to automatically import a measurement of batch jobs into the PMA in 3 s i m p l e steps!

    • Obtain and install PTFs LU02926 & LU02927
    • Configure MAT to introduce new parameter PMAAUI
    • Configure PMA and add the APCYBLST to the PMA library

     Ad 2) Please follow HOLD data associated with this PTF. Additionally PMAAUII parameter can be after configuration dynamically controlled and status-checked utilizing the following commands.

    Ad 3) Running STEP 9 and STEP 10 of PMA customization utility ( MATHLQ.CEETSAMP(CUSTAPCT) ) ensure the new job APCYNLST is generated

    Collecting the information into the PMA was never easier. Any batch job that now triggers MAT measurement will auto-import the data for PMA users.

    Refer to this short video to get an introduction to this functionality as well as a demonstrated use case.

    More about this feature in this documentation article: Generate PMA Reports

    This functionality is available via PTFs #LU02926 & #LU02927.
