CA SYSVIEW Room for Improvement

Senior Mainframe Systems Programmer - Storage
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 additional development. But if I were to suggest something it would be the JES3 initiators, the JES3 queues. It confuses a lot of people because there are so many features, but when they see me bouncing around they say, "I didn't know it did that, I didn't know it did that." It takes a long time to find all the different features that are available. View full review »

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

I guess really just kind of expansion. We specifically use IMS as our database. I think really in the line of IMS and what it can provide needs to be expanded a little bit for some of our purposes. View full review »

They are already working on improvements. One of them is the operational intelligence, which is a lot of stuff I am trying to learn and work on right now, which SYSVIEW reports to that all the system things which are going on. View full review »

We are using Datacom as the database system, so maybe a little bit more integration with that. It can also be a little bit more better, but it is very good. I do not any products that can do all the things that it is doing. View full review »

For one particular environment, the capturing, recording and presentation of IBM CPUMF data would be useful. IBM Mainframes now produce data on processor cache performance. There is a mechanism for capturing that data within z/OS. It is useful for comparing machines and the impact of the number of partitions and logical to physical processors ratios. View full review »

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. View full review »

Having spoken with the product owner, we discussed the interests of being able to identify the unit of work ID giving us the ability to correlate transactions that cross technologies. For example, if a unit of work ID is associated with a CICS, a DB2, and a MQ transaction, and having that capability correlate to those different technologies via one business application transaction which would be beneficial.
