CICS monitor is not active (SV 14.2)

  • 1.  CICS monitor is not active (SV 14.2)

    Posted 06-27-2019 09:16 AM

    Hello,
    I am dbdc  guy primary, so sysview is new for me. I want ask about SYSVIEW monitor for CICS. I take new customer, with no documentation about sysview configuration or previous installation and so on… We have SYSVIEW V14.2, . CICS monitor not works: ( CICS004W*CICS monitor is not active) , but it seems that somebody tried setup it.

     I first check how it looks like in SYSVIEW in cics list: all cices has this information:
    ExecStage:EXECUTING  Status:NOSTART   RowStat:NORMAL

    So then I check how it looks like in CICS. SYSVIEW group is in CSD and is installed, GSVCGSVS program is in PLT table and CNM4BLOD in RPL. Also monitoring is on (MN=ON). During startup of cics appeared only this  message ,no any error or warning:


    GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request started     

    GSVC713I Starting transaction GSVI               

    GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request complete    

    ....

    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=TDQUEUE Object=GSVS defined       

    GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request started                        

    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=PROGRAM Object=GSVCAPMX defined   

    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=PROGRAM Object=GSVCAPMS defined   

    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=PROFILE Object=GSVXALTS defined   

    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=TCLASS Object=GSVCGSVS defined    

    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=TCLASS Object=GSVCGSVI defined    

    GSVC712I Resource definitions have been created                     

    GSVC713I Starting transaction GSVI                                  

    GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request complete  

     

    So on side of CICS seems everything ok.

     

    So I continue to SYSVIEW side.

    I didn't found any error or warning in SYSVIEW output. I checked if CICS option is enabled:

    In GSVXGSVX member of Libarary GSVXSCFG is

    Option-CICS                      Yes 

     

    This information is also in output of running SYSVIEW. So CICS option is turned on in SYSVIEW.

     

    Next I checked, if CICSDATA and CICSLOGR subtask. And thay are configured in sysview:

     

    Command ASADMIN:


    SYSVIEW  *        *        ACTIVE         

    .        CICSDATA CICSDATA ACTIVE 

    .        CICSLOGR          MODEL  

    .        CICSLOGR CICLOG0P ACTIVE 

    .        CICSLOGR CICLOG0T ACTIVE 

      

    Jobname  Task     Id       Status  

    SYSVUSER *        *        ACTIVE         

    .        CICS     CICS     ACTIVE 

     

     And in used by sysview, LGLOGS:

     Name              Status

    CICLOG0P.SYSD     ACTIVE

    CICLOG0P.TRAN     ACTIVE

    CICLOG0P.TSUM     ACTIVE

    CICLOG0P.XLOG     ACTIVE

    CICLOG0T.SYSD     ACTIVE

    CICLOG0T.TRAN     ACTIVE

    CICLOG0T.TSUM     ACTIVE

    CICLOG0T.XLOG     ACTIVE

      

    So I don't have any idea how to check it in sysview. So I tried found installation jobs(migration from 14.1 to 14.2)

    I found some SAMPJCL library, but there is not notes. And I am not sure if previous SYSVIEW support team used those Libraries. It not help me. I see only option :  start all instalation jobs for CICS part : INST0052, INST0053, INST0060, INST0061, CICSMAPS
    but not sure if it is good idea.

    This problem is outside of my knowledge.Probably previous support team missed some step during migration, or disable this CICS monitor some non-standard way.

    Honestly I don't know what next. Do you have any proposal how check what is wrong or any hint?

    Jan,

    The GSVC messages that you have included are all the result of the GSVS transaction or GSVCGSVS program in the PLT.
    This process will start the GSVI transaction which initializes the SYSVIEW for CICS data collector in the CICS region.

    You need to determine if the GSVI transaction is executing.
    The transaction GSVI runs as a system transaction and therefore will not be displayed using CEMT I TASK.
    When GSVI starts additional messages will be written to the joblog such as the following:

    GSVC024I (GSVI) CA SYSVIEW Performance Management
    GSVC001I (GSVI) CA SYSVIEW for CICS Release 16.0.00 Build 0990
    GSVC002I (GSVI) Copyright (C) 2019 CA Technologies, Inc.
    GSVC003I (GSVI) z/OS Release = 2.3.0 System name = CA31
    GSVC004I (GSVI) CICS Release = 7.2.0 HCI7200
    GSVC050I (GSVI) System configuration options loaded for SSID SYSV
    GSVC034I (GSVI) WARM start has been initiated
    GSVC027I (GSVI) (GSVI) Services Userid = SYSVDEV
    GSVC025I (GSVI) (GSVS) Initialization Tranid = GSVS
    GSVC025I (GSVI) (GSVT) Initialization Tranid = GSVT
    GSVC025I (GSVI) (GSVI) Initialization Tranid = GSVI

    During the initialization process, additional SYSOUT ddnames will be created.
    The ddname GSVCLOG will contain detailed initialization information.

    You may want to view the ddname MSGUSR for additional information.

    Since you did not mention the messages above, I have to believe that the transaction GSVI is not executing.
    I would encourage you to open a support case at: https://casupport.broadcom.com/

    Hi Todd,
    I check CICSes output and all has SYSView ddname:
    DDNAME StepName ProcStep
    GSVCGSVS CICS RUN

    And some CICSes has only those messages in this GSVGSVS log:
    ********************************* TOP OF DATA **********************************
    2019/06/28 06:00:19.832 GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request started
    2019/06/28 06:00:19.846 GSVC713I Starting transaction GSVI
    2019/06/28 06:00:19.847 GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request complete
    ******************************** BOTTOM OF DATA ********************************

    and some has more messages:

    ********************************* TOP OF DATA **********************************
    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=TDQUEUE Object=GSVS defined
    GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request started
    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=PROGRAM Object=GSVCAPMX defined
    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=PROGRAM Object=GSVCAPMS defined
    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=PROFILE Object=GSVXALTS defined
    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=TCLASS Object=GSVCGSVS defined
    GSVC716I Resource definition Type=TCLASS Object=GSVCGSVI defined
    GSVC712I Resource definitions have been created
    GSVC713I Starting transaction GSVI
    GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request complete
    ******************************** BOTTOM OF DATA ********************************


    Also I check program directly in CICS and it was runnin onec.
    I PROGRAM(GSVCGSVS)
    STATUS: RESULTS - OVERTYPE TO MODIFY
    Prog(GSVCGSVS) Leng(0000020832) Ass Pro Ena Pri Ced
    Resc(0000) Use(0000000001) Bel Cex Ful Qua Cic Nat

    but I will try do new definition of CICS resources and install that, because it look like that during migration process it wasn't done.

    It appears that the GSVI transaction is not getting started.
    This could be due to security or other items.

    The DDNAME GSVCGSVS is the output of the GSVCGSVS startup program typically run in PLT.
    The startup process can also be started manually.
    You may want to try this and see if you get a different result.
    From a CICS terminal, enter the transaction: GSVS
    This will issue a start for the GSVI transaction.

    You check the GSVCGSVS program using CEMT.
    Also check: CEMT I PROGRAM(GSVCGSVI)

    You can execute the GSVS transaction under CEDF debugging.  This could help find the issue.
    The contents of the DDNAME MSGUSR may also provide some insight to errors.

    You can also use the transaction CEDX GSVI.
    This would trap the execution of GSVI if it starts.

    Give these ideas a try.

    hello,
    I tried start monitoring manually by tran : GSVS and also by GSVT RESTART
    always same result - messages from cics output after restart:
    GSVC715I CA SYSVIEW for CICS termination started
    GSVC714I Request parms: GSVT RESTART
    GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request started
    GSVC714I COMMAREA parms: GSVT RESTART
    GSVC713I Starting transaction GSVI
    GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request complete

    I check programs and it seems that GSVS transaction don't start GSVI, because GSVCGSVI program not run:
    STATUS: RESULTS - OVERTYPE TO MODIFY
    Prog(GSVCGSVI) Leng(0000035256) Ass Pro Ena Pri Ced
    Resc(0000) Use(0000000000) Bel Cex Ful Qua Cic
    Prog(GSVCGSVS) Leng(0000020832) Ass Pro Ena Pri Ced
    Resc(0000) Use(0000000007) Bel Cex Ful Qua Cic
    Prog(GSVCGSVT) Leng(0000012264) Ass Pro Ena Pri Ced
    Resc(0000) Use(0000000001) Bel Cex Ful Qua Cic

    so I try investigate it by CEDF transaction, but it was problem because GSVS has several pages of execution Inquire commands Like this:
    EXEC CICS INQUIRE TDQUEUE
    TDQUEUE ('GSVS')
    NOHANDLE

    STATUS: COMMAND EXECUTION COMPLETE
    EXEC CICS INQUIRE PROGRAM
    PROGRAM ('GSVCGSVI')
    NOHANDLE

    STATUS: ABOUT TO EXECUTE COMMAND
    EXEC CICS INQUIRE PROGRAM
    PROGRAM ('GSVCGSVT')
    NOHANDLE

    STATUS: ABOUT TO EXECUTE COMMAND
    EXEC CICS INQUIRE PROGRAM
    PROGRAM ('GSVCEXIT')
    NOHANDLE

    ......


    so I try PF4  (SUPPRESS DISPLAYS - Suppresses all EDF displays until the next stop condition occurs.), but it jump to end and just display message:
    GSVC700I CA SYSVIEW for CICS initialization started

    and nothing more. Probably I didn't use CEDF correctly, because I don't use it much.

    I don't know why transaction GSVS not start tran GSVI and their program. Any Ideas?

    Jan,

    I would encourage you to open a support case. We will be able to provide the best support using this means.

    A couple things to try:

    1. Attempt to start the GSVI transaction manually. This will fail, but it might provide the clue that we need. The GSVI transaction must be started indirectly using the GSVS transaction. If you issue the GSVI directly from a terminal, you should receive the following message:

    GSVC702I Please use transaction GSVS to initialize CA SYSVIEW for CICS

    2. The GSVS transaction will issue an asynchronous start for the GSVI transaction. Based on messages, I believe that this is occurring. We could validate using CEDF
    Issue CEDF
    Then issue GSVS
    Set stop condition of EXEC CICS START

    hello,
    Problem is solved. It was security problem. All definition in CICS and sysview was right. We have transaction security turn on and external security manager is ACF2 ( not RACF ). I don't know, why we didn't receive any warnings. But when we tried temporary disable security verification for GSVS,GSVT,GSVI transaction in our test cics, everything works fine. Thanks for help.
