grouping CICS transactions for the service they provide

  • 1.  grouping CICS transactions for the service they provide

    Hello Colleagues.

    I'd like your help in the following idea that our customer is asking us to develop in CA SYSVIEW:

    The idea is grouping the transactions depending of the service they provide, and shows an alert when a threshold is reached by some of the transactions belong to this group, but this alert should indicate the group name and not the transaction, this way the client would know which is the service that is being affected.

    I appreciate so much any suggestion to accomplish this idea.

    Many thanks!
    Fernando

    Fernando,
    On GROUPS create a group of Type CICSTRAN and INCLUDE the specific transactions IDs in it.
    On CTHRESH I'd suggest using the transaction summary variables (TSUMxxxx) if possible, as they have automatic data collection performed for the group.  e.g. TSUMLIFE >grpname
    Then if the average lifetime values of any transactions in that group exceed the Limit the threshold will trigger on the minute boundary.
