CA SYSVIEW Review

Thresholds with alerts enable us to fix a problem before it has an impact


What is our primary use case?

  • IOF/SDSF compatible commands and displays
  • MVS displays and commands
  • DB2
  • USS CICS displays

How has it helped my organization?

Thresholds with alerts are valuable, enabling us to fix a problem before it has an impact.

What is most valuable?

The MVS commands, because we have a lot of new, inexperienced users on the mainframe who don’t know the commands.

What needs improvement?

The documentation. I noticed with the last release that all of the manuals were bundled into one. It used to have a separate installation guide, user guide, etc.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No stability issues, it has always been reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Excellent.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

SDSF and IOF. We didn’t switch, we have both products.

How was the initial setup?

Very straightforward, with excellent installation documentation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am not involved with pricing or licensing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

SYSVIEW has been here since I started working here.

What other advice do I have?

Follow the manual and you won’t have any problems. If you do come across any installation issues, instead of spending lots of time trying to resolve it, open up a question with support and they will resolve it very quickly.
