What is most valuable?

The transaction troubleshooting for the applications is the product’s most valuable feature. Giving the opportunity for those applications to be able to see what's wrong with a transaction and make corrections; giving them the information readily accessible. At the same time, from a systems end, we use it for taking care of the everyday type of stuff that the... more»

What needs improvement?

I think a lot of the stuff has to zero in and make it quicker. I think overall the SYSVIEW product right now has a lot of commands. There's a lot of panels. A lot of information. What we need to do is trim it down for the applications or the avid user. A lot of what they're doing right now, they're bringing in new hires out of college. We don't want to make it... more»

What is most valuable?

I use most of the SMS space management extensively, but also the features that enable me to look at dumps and different dataset allocations to the system, and performance data from the queueing and delays. I also really appreciated all the... more»

How has it helped my organization?

When we changed to JES3, the programmers didn't have to know anything. The product provided the same interface with the same look and feel.

What needs improvement?

The things that I would think about would be in relation to JES3. However, I don't know if they'll be able to do much more with that because I don't know how much longer IBM is going to be supporting JES3. So I can understand not doing... more»

What is most valuable?

Actually, all the features are valuable. The product gives deep insight into a z/OS operating system by means of many powerful commands, each of which provides information within seconds. By contrast, using normal system commands would take... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Several times it saved us tens of thousands of Euros by tremendously reducing the time necessary to solve a severe operating system problem.

What needs improvement?

As with every piece of software, there’s always room for improvement. But for our shop, the most important features of the product have been working perfectly for a very long time. As for the JES2 component of the product, CA might improve... more»

What is most valuable?

Like a Megamind does, it provides CPU contention batch job information. We are looking more for our kicks regions and stuff, which it self discovers, then they have some work to do. However, it has been very valuable so far.

How has it helped my organization?

The benefits are kind of what we are looking for. We are not there yet, and end-to-end, we are trying to tie it up with our distributive apps to match them up with the mainframe apps. Therefore, everything is tied through one single pane of... more»

What needs improvement?

The product itself seems very good. The documentation, like installation guides and stuff, put it all in one place.

What do you think of CA SYSVIEW?

Primary Use Case This is our primary performance monitor. It replaced BMC Mainview and is much easier to install and maintain.  Most of what we need is all in this single product.  We monitor z/OS, JES2, MQ, IMS, CICS and TCPIP with this product over 3 lpars.  It's very easy to switch from lpar to lpar without even leaving the product.  This is very helpful to us. • Improvements to My Organization It's beneficial because it also ties into other CA products that we have. It makes it a really good fit. • Valuable Features It's an all in one monitoring solution because of the different subsystems we have such as JZ2, MQ, CICS and being the fact that it's an all inclusive and an all single install really helps us out. • Room for Improvement I guess really just kind of...

What is CA SYSVIEW?

CA SYSVIEW Performance Management offers new levels of visibility into critical business transactions that provide 24x7 monitoring for complex application environments. This real-time visibility is a critical asset to simplify mainframe performance management by monitoring against alerts, drilling down for intuitive problem identification, and basing automation on performance intelligence. Instead of using different tools, processes and people to support each environment, now there's an enterprise-wide solution that monitors the real-time performance of mainframe subsystems, providing additional integrated data.
