Does anyone know if there is an option with CA-View 12.2 to get information on job runs ?. Specifically looking to see when a user may have last accessed a report and also the last time a report may have been printed.
This information can be got from CA View today, regardless of release.
There is a feature in View called Metrix. This uses SMF records to give information like: What a report is accessed and by whom. When it is printed. When user’s logon etc.
Really appreciate the reply back. Do you happen to know where we could get a sample of JCL,etc to setup this Metrix to run some reports ?
Hi Jake. There was a slight mistake in my previous entry, sorry. If you look for 'Metrics' you will find setup and reporting documented in the manuals.
The Metrics reports are generated using the JCL member (HBRMMETX) that was installed into CAI.CVDEJCCL from the CA View installation tape. This JCL can be tailored to meet the needs of your data center, but do not modify the ddnames.
Thank you, Jorgen, for your helpful reply. Thank you, Jake, for raising the question. I hope that the following links in the CA View 12.2 documentation are also helpful:
