    ​What is CA Easytrieve profiling and code coverage Toolkit MVP?

    Profiling and code coverage toolkit should enable an An "Easytrieve Programmer" TO "uncover potential program performance bottlenecks" so you can improve program performance but also let the precious MIPS be utilized for heavy production batch jobs to ultimately lower the TCO of Easytrieve"

    The code coverage feature provides assistance in analyzing the code coverage for the Easytrieve programs. This tool works in both Compile-and-Go mode as well as Compile-Link-and-Execute mode of Easytrieve.

    The tool provides assistance in the following areas

    • QA Code Coverage
      • Identify current test coverage to help create additional test cases and increase coverage
      • A visibility into what statements of Easytrieve program are actually executable


    • Performance statistics in Easytrieve
      • Show the number of times the statement was executed and system time elapsed per statement to understand where your programs spend most time so you can uncover bottlenecks
      • Show CPU time burned to show you the delta from previous run to see if the program or database statements are performing as expected
