CA SYSVIEW Review

Provides information about job degradation and analysis.


What is most valuable?

  • Job degradation and analysis

How has it helped my organization?

It gives an indication of potential performance bottlenecks.

What needs improvement?

The screen layout could be updated and be more modern looking.

The product has a 1980’s interface and it seems no investment whatsoever has been made in this respect.

It’s a green texted screen, the navigation is poor because you can’t use the cursor for selection.

Exiting the product does not allow for the standard ‘=x’ instruction. You have to Pf3 all the way out.

Great product...terrible looking interface

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for 12 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Sometimes in split screen, it can crash.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not encountered any scalability problems.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support is fairly good.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We have MainView but SYSVIEW is better for z/OS internals.

How was the initial setup?

It was simple to install.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, we did not evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

Do it.
