Last week, Umberto shared some JCL to show how you can use CA SYSVIEW in batch mode to display maintenance information for all the load modules in a loadlib.
Today, I wanted to tell you about a utility that you can run that has a simple function of displaying this same information in a panel from anywhere within ISPF. It provides a quick, easy and safe way to get answers to the most commonly asked question about product maintenance levels.
Note that this utility uses CA SYSVIEW to gather the information, and you can use this program against any loadlib, although the Release, Lastfix, Assemble Date/Time, and FMID information will only be provided from CA Product loadlibs.
Please follow this link to the SVLOAD.txt file to learn more and to download the file.
Here is a small capture of the screen showing the kind of information you can get from your loadlib.
How does the SVLOAD program take the CA SYSVIEW LISTDIR command to the next level?
We would appreciate it if you would download and give this a try. Let us know your comments here.
