CA SYSVIEW Valuable Features

SeniorMaa248
Senior Mainframe Systems Programmer - Storage
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 work that everybody did to get it functional for JES3, and they continue to do so, even though IBM said they are going to do away with JES3. I've really appreciated that, as MBS and z/OS have expanded features, SYSVIEW has been right there in step, providing updates and access to those features. It gives the commands the front-end through the product. View full review »

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. View full review »

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. View full review »

* Ease of use * Ability for system diagnostics System troubleshooting and diagnostics are the biggest thing for us. We need to make sure our system is up and running and at peak performing. Also, it helps us troubleshoot if something does go wrong that we did not happen to see. View full review »

It is easy to see if anything is wrong. The queues on the system are fast, and it is very intuitive to locate something. View full review »

CICS, JES, and MVS aren't necessarily valuable, just very useful. SYSVIEW provides information that supports our duties in problem alerts, problem investigation, and performance monitoring and management. View full review »

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