Looping MPPs, BMPs, transactions and other IMS executables can be difficult to identify.  This can lead to the use of extra resources, cause performance delays, and cause peaks in your 4-hour rolling average, which can  increase costs.


MainView for IMS™ Management 6.2.01 can proactively identify loops and automatically take actions to resolve the looping conditions based on your defined criteria.


To search for loops, you can set criteria such as elapsed time, CPU usage, I/O rate, and more as shown in the screen shot below. You can filter the criteria to select a specific IMS job name, application region, region type, transaction, LTERM, and/or program name. You can even use wildcards and exclude specific items to make it easier to capture only the IMS objects you want.
