Pool Advisor for Db2 is available as a stand-alone product or is entitled as part of the MainView for Db2 Management Solution and has some impressive capabilities around storage management, pool management, and advisors to help tune and maintain resource usage within acceptable levels.

 

Pool Advisor for Db2 provides the ability to balance the needs of the system and the needs of Db2 to optimize memory usage for the best performance of your database environment.  This powerful solution provides:

 

  • Expert assistance in the form of a buffer pool, EDM pool, dynamic caching, sort pool, RID pools, and group buffer pool use. 
  • Recommendations about storage resource allocations, object configuration, and some Db2 parameter settings. 
  • Real-time management of some of these resources to improve performance and throughput, automatically if permitted

 

The Advisors will cause an alert in Pool Advisor complete with recommendations on how to fix the problems.  Recommended actions can be taken from pool advisor through the Command Interface or in the Db2 environment for recommendations such as changes to zParms. There is also a Configuration Advisor that will analyze the performance data and produce the JCL necessary to change the configuration for optimal performance helping to guarantee the best configuration across multiple workloads.

 

This introduction helps set the stage for the importance of the latest updates to Pool Advisor for Db2.

 

In December of 2019 there was an enhancement that added reporting capability for data sharing groups across all the different supported pool types.  More information about this enhancement can be found here.

 

The latest update available on July 16, 2020 will allow the messages associated with an Alert to be written to the console.  This way when there is a performance problem automation can be used to notify the correct individuals and possibly open tickets about the issue.  This is important to make sure resource shortages or other related issues can be fixed much faster even when someone is not looking at the screen.

 

For more information on how to get this enhancement please see the Technical Bulletin located here.

 

MainView for Db2 Management removes the guesswork from performance tuning, enabling you to configure your Db2 mainframe environment for optimal z/OS system performance addressing system tuning, monitoring, and automation to deliver higher reliability and efficiency across your Db2 environment. The tools in this solution will help you find and correct Db2 system exceptions, quickly pinpoint and resolve bottlenecks, and access real-time and historical data for guided analysis and recommendations. 

Pool Advisor for Db2 provides a fast, accurate means of monitoring DB2 storage resources to help you identify and resolve problems as they occur. Pool Advisor enables you to monitor the performance of DB2 activities in real time and to display data about the performance of the system in a readable, usable format.  For more information about MainView for Db2 and Pool Advisor for Db2, visit the website

MainView for JAVA Environments V3.2 became available on July 16, 2020 and in this new release many functions that were delivered in the maintenance stream are now in the base and we added more capabilities.

 

One of the largest enhancements delivered in the maintenance stream was support for z/OS Connect EE providing monitoring for your API’s as you modernize your mainframe with more common interfaces to off-platform applications.

 

Also in the latest release,  multiple connections to IBM Health Center and the ability to monitor CPU by thread. Find the information about these enhancements here.  

Other new items include:

  • Ability to gather data via the JMX API for Liberty profiles
  • Simplification around customization of the product
  • Visibility into the IP address and port associated with a business service running in a JVM to help isolate problems faster. 

 

As more and more customers are starting to use JAVA in Db2,  we have made navigation between MainView for JAVA Environments and MainView for DB2 more intuitive to get you closer to the problem faster.

 

The highlighted new function in this release is the ability to monitor the availability of specified JVMs through the creation of a watchlist including the ability to separate the type of monitoring done for JVMs with the same name.  This is typical in traditional WAS environments where cloning occurs.  Generic entries can be created and if there is a specific version of the JVM,  you can specify the port to have deeper monitoring on that specific JVM.  You will be able to identify which JVMs are being watched from the JVM Discovery view where there is a column “W” which will indicate if a JVM is being watched.

 

For more information about the release follow this link.

 

MainView for Java Environments provides a comprehensive solution for managing Java running on the mainframe, including auto-discovery of JVMs and extensive data on JVM performance, memory usage, and thread activity.  Although no other MainView monitors are required for implementing MVJE, existing MainView users will also see all the MainView unique benefits of centralized architecture, smart alarms and alerts, guided navigation for root cause identification, and analysis.  For more information about MVJE, visit the website.

I am delighted to announce the latest releases of MainView for IP 3.7 and MainView for Networks Solution 6.3.02 became available on July 16, 2020.

 

New in MainView for IP 3.7 and available in MainView for Networks:

 

Take advantage of the latest updates in z/OS Communication Server and the z15 immediately.   Support was provided via PTF, available Day 1 and it is part of MainView for IP 3.7 including support for the OSA 7S card.  

 

Many new features were delivered in the maintenance stream which will be made available in the base of MainView for IP 3.7.  These include support for zERT which is being enhanced in the new release so that you no longer have to choose between detail or summary records, simplification around the Packet Trace with easier navigation, dynamic allocation of the trace datasets, and authorization of writing the trace to a personal dataset. You now have maps for our history files so you can use the extraction utility to get  the history data for use in other tools.

 

Look for many new enhancements in the release as well starting with identifying connection security types so you can easily get notified if there are connection that are not following your company security protocols.

 

Offering a simplified way to define connections and other resources that need to be monitored for availability, the use of Wild Cards will provide a simplified approach to group items that need to be highly available.

 

New Network Topology view provides a graphical view to identify where in your network problems are arising and at a glance identify areas of the network that may be impacted by a problem.

 

New in MainView for Networks 6.3.02:

 

New in the maintenance stream and now in the MainView for Networks base the Intelligent Trace Analyzer.  This solution now provides the ability to start and stop Packet traces based on alarms built with your business needs in mind and analyze the trace without leaving MainView.  This solution can help early in career Network Analysts or even new to the mainframe network specialists become productive faster than ever before.

I am delighted to announce the latest releases of MainView for IMS 5.4 and MainView for IMS Management Solution 6.3.02 became available on July 16,2020.  These offerings provided support for IBM IMS 15.2 and CICS TS 5.6.

 

New in MainView for IMS 5.4 and available in MainView for IMS Management:

 

In this release, we concentrated on providing more information associated with IMS Connect. These distributed transactions can make your workload more unpredictable then ever and if there is an outage of the interface you need to be notified immediately if possible.  These capabilities provide tighter integration with BMC Energizer for IMS Connect so that you can proactively see the status, easily identify the datastores and the port statistics for these important integration points, and set alarms based on this information.

 

With this release, the history records are mapped so this concludes the support for the extract and transformation utility capabilities.  For more information on this utility please see this blog.

 

A big change is moving away from non-standard to standard interfaces. We are adopting the usage of the standard DC Monitor dynamic exit. This simplifies and standardizes this part of our interface with IMS.

 

Since we Support CICS TS transactions that use IMS as the database as part of this support we have added the CICS Service class to the FA/F9 records.

 

MainView for IMS Management 6.3.02 includes all the above listed features, plus the following enhancement that makes it far easier to manage your IMS environment:

 

Recon datasets (DBRC) are very important to the recoverability of IMS.  These datasets can become unavailable or start having issues without warning leading to more severe outages.  With the addition of this support, you can set alarms on the status of the datasets, identify if I/O errors are occurring, and any of the other metrics associated with the RECONs.

 

This will allow the IMS DBAs to be able to bring up a view to identify the last image copy or if one is needed, if there are any EEQEs and be proactively notified, and as you move to HALDBs identify if they are recoverable.  Best of all when there is an issue with the Recon’s you don’t have to find your JCL you can just look in MainView and get a Realtime update about any important database.

 

To read more detail about the releases see the release notes for:

 

MainView for IMS Management

MainView for IMS Offline

MainView for IMS Online

MainView for DBCTL

 

MainView for IMS Management lets you manage all aspects of IMS and DBCTL to meet the scale and complexity of digital business from a single view and control.  It provides extensive performance, real-time, and historical statistics in summarized and detailed views. In addition, it delivers IMS workload management, instant degradation detection, immediate exception determination, and rapid problem resolution with integrated automation. MainView for IMS Management uses less resources than other solutions, so you can utilize its full benefits without fear of impacting your MLC costs.

I am delighted to let you know that MainView for CICS 7.1 is now available.

 

This new release of MainView for CICS includes support for CICS TS 5.6 with the following notable additions:

  • New views to show the trace table associated with each running task when CICS tracing is active
  • Additional Task Performance Data added to Views including:
    • Fields associated with the time associated with authentication
    • Fields associated with time spent waiting due to MVS short on storage
  • New CICS Statistics Data

 

A requirement to provide the ability to have more than 2 CMRDETL files has been fulfilled with this release.  You can now have up to 10 CMRDETL files for recording.   MainView for CICS will allocate the files for you based on a prefix you can specify in the administrative menus.  You can specify the number of files you wish, and they will be allocated using the prefix plus a suffix of Dnn sequentially from D01 and ending at the number you specified.  You can create your own files as long that they follow the required naming standard, or it can be created for you.  This capability will allow you to allocate more files if you are switching files at a rapid rate or even to allocate smaller files so you can keep data available online at a more granular level such as shifts.

 

We continue to improve the usability of the CHISTORY navigation.   With enhancements to choose the direction, the records are read to provide information about the data that is present in the view such as Oldest and Newest Records read and available (for single target context only).  Start/End date and time and MAX Records/Exclude can be modified without going back to CHISTORY so you can easily modify them if another query is necessary.

 

Program Timing has added the elapsed time spent in each program in a task when activated with expanded data on in the CMRSOPT.  If you use this feature you will be able to identify potential problems with transactions that are running long.  This is also a feature that might be able to identify if a weekend change could be causing a problem if you keep the CMRDETL data.

 

Those of you that run CICS Transaction Gateway (CTG) we have not forgotten about you.  We have added the EIBTRNID to the Task and CHIST views so you can see the transaction id associated with the task in those views if one was specified via the CTG request. 

 

The release will also incorporate other functions that were delivered in the maintenance stream into the base product.  These functions like Partner Resource monitoring and health check containers were discussed in this blog.

 

As you can see this release of MainView for CICS has a lot of great capabilities. You can find out more detail in the release notes located here.

 

MainView for CICS (MVCICS) and MainView for CICS Management provides a comprehensive solution for managing your IBM CICS TS environment. It is a cost-effective, intelligent, and integrated CICS management solution that enables you to tune, manage, and automatically take actions before disruptive and highly complex digital business workloads impede the smooth flow of business.  It is part of an integrated family of monitors with easy guided navigation to follow a transaction for CICS to other subsystems such as MQ, DB2 and IMS.  For more information about MainView for CICS Management, visit the website

In the BMC MainView organization, we continually strive to innovate and come out with the best feature functions and usability enhancements so we can deliver greater value to our customers. With that in mind we have created two new customer validation programs. One is the MainView Continuous Beta Program and the other is the MainView User Experience Improvement Program.

 

Now all we need is for you to come and join us!

 

The MainView Continuous Beta program is one stop shopping for all MainView products. With many features and functions coming out through the maintenance stream, we would like to have a community of individuals that we can talk through designs and make functions, features and releases available early if you need the capabilities or are willing to do some beta testing.

 

The MainView User Experience Improvement program concentrates on the changes to the way customers use and experience the MainView family of products. This program will contain information about our Modernization projects, where you could provide input from the very beginning before code is even written, ensuring we build a solution that will help you and your future systems programmers be more productive.

 

Although these programs require beta agreements to be signed, you do not have to download the code if you do not wish to. You can simply provide input during the review process to make the MainView products better.

 

If you are interested in joining either or both of these communities please email me at Susan_Rice@bmc.com and we will send you the steps needed to join. We look forward to having your valuable input as we continue to help our customers better run and reinvent their businesses!

Have you ever wished that you could just add a job step to your workload to start an IFCID trace for a batch Db2 workload? Sometimes wishes do come true!  With the latest updates that became available on January 9, MainView for Db2 has provided the capability to start and stop a trace from a batch job.

 

As part of the MainView strategy to make it easier and faster to get the diagnostic data you need, we have added the ability to start an IFCID trace from a batch job instead of having to set up a trace online. This ensures that you are tracing the correct workload instead of watching a trace sit in pending status hoping you chose the correct workload.  Before starting a workload, simply add a job step identifying the IFCIDs that are desired as well as the data source. The trace will start when the workload starts, probably in the next step of the job.  You can also specify an interval for the duration of the trace and/or add a step after the workload to stop the trace to ensure you’ve covered the full workload without wasting resources.  There is nothing like being assured you will be tracing the correct workload when needed!

 

For more information on how to get this enhancement please see the Technical Bulletin located here.

In BMC Software’s spirit of continuous improvement, I am pleased to announce an update to the Loop Check and Max Check features within MainView for z/OS.  This feature was first announced as a small program enhancement and incorporated into the base product in release 6.1 of MainView for z/OS (the original announcement can be found by following this link).  Since then, we have identified criteria that will help reduce the potential for false positive alerts and added filters to the product.

 

With this enhancement you can now add the following new criteria to your Loop Check:

  • Minimum and maximum triggers for CPU usage and delay percentage
  • Number of observations for a trigger to occur
  • Include or exclude program names from checking

 

We have also added functionality like including and excluding of Job step or program name to the Max Check feature.  With the ability to be more granular with the Loop Check profile definitions, we hope to reduce the amount of candidate jobs that show up as potential loops to only those jobs experiencing a looping problem.

 

Internally we have also increased the amount of history we can compare for validation from a low of 4 1-minute intervals to a high of 25 1-minute intervals.  This added flexibility will allow you to set the number of intervals you wish to compare, so you can increase or decrease the number of buckets used in the comparison to help identify and rectify loops that might be longer in duration.

 

For more information on how to get this enhancement please see the Technical Bulletin located here.

Partner Resource Monitoring:

How often have you been trying to find out which backend system a transaction is using when a problem occurs?  Well, MainView for CICS just made it a lot easier!  With the latest continuous delivery update you can get this information with just one click by adding views that will provide Partner Resource information. You can easily follow the transaction, detect where the problem really lies and correct it, reducing the time to problem resolution without leaving MainView.

 

The new views will provide the following information:

  • The name of the partner
  • The target region (CICS) or subsystem (Db2 or IMS) name
  • The 8-character name of the IBM z/OS Communications Server node
  • The 8-character name of the network in which the partner is located
  • The 8-character name of the PROFILE definition
  • The 64-character name of the remote transaction program that runs on the partner LU
  • A halfword binary field giving the actual length of the remote transaction program

 

Health Check Containers:

Have you ever been asked what areas of the monitor you are using, or what the health of MainView for CICS is?  Now with the inclusion of health check containers, you can provide this information with ease.  Three new out of the box configurations will tell you about:

  • The health of the connection between CICS regions and their subsystems
  • The backend monitors that are currently active and the associated timers and message IDs
  • MainView for CICS usage and configuration information. 

With these new containers you can see at a glance if there is a problem or export the data and provide reports on how you are using the monitor.

 

MainView for CICS (MVCICS) and MainView for CICS Management provides a comprehensive solution for managing your IBM CICS TS environment. It is a cost-effective, intelligent, and integrated CICS management solution that enables you to tune, manage, and automatically take actions before disruptive and highly complex digital business workloads impede the smooth flow of business.  It is part of an integrated family of monitors with easy guided navigation to follow a transaction for CICS to other subsystems such as MQ, Db2 and IMS.  For more information about MainView for CICS Management, visit the website.

I am delighted to let you know that updates for MainView for z/OS®, BMC CMF MONITOR, MainView for UNIX® System Services, and MainView SYSPROG Services 6.2 as well as MainView Monitoring 6.3.01 are now available. 

 

This new release of the above family of products includes many features requested by our customers. This update is also a level set of all the continuous delivery PTFs that have been made available since the last release in June of 2017, this includes support for z/OS® 2.3, the z14 and additional capabilities added to RMF™ via the maintenance stream.  We supported the new technology and capabilities using the maintenance stream so that you could easily adopt this technology without issues with MainView.  By providing this level set it will simplify moving forward with the next release of z/OS as it becomes available.

 

CMF Monitor and MainView for z/OS have improved the short-term history and trending information available online to you.  The following areas have been added and are available in Single System Image views:

 

  • Capacity group activity over time
  • Central electronics complex (CEC) and capacity group usage over time
  • Information about multiple intervals for capacity groups and CECs
  • MSU utilization, interval MSU per hour, and defined capacity of LPARs
  • Percentage of active and available frames for the system, the system unreferenced interval count (UIC), and paging rates
  • All delay reasons for intervals

 

There were additional views and elements to support this enhancement, the full list is available in the release notes available in the below links.

 

We know how important the amount of resource used by your monitors is to you and to continue our journey of providing the most efficient solutions, we have reduced the amount of ECSA that the CMF Monitor uses when running the Continuous Performance Monitoring (CPM) and Intermittent Performance Monitoring (IPM) modes. 

 

There were changes made at the MainView family level as well, like improving post install customization and product level administration through adding the EZADMIN capability. This new set of views allows the updating of important administration tasks like parameters and security via a simple user interface instead of having to run through the Installer.  We continue to bring you a familiar look and feel across all MainView products with intuitive navigation across these four specific products from the EZADMIN Menu.

 

Finally, last month we wrote about  the Data Extraction and Transformation utilities made available through MainView Infrastructure.  We are excited to announce that the MainView for z/OS, CMF Monitor and MainView for Unix System Service maps are now available for use.  The maps are in the BBMAP DDDEF.

You likely have set standards for your IP connections they must use a secure encrypted connection.  But, if a problem occurs during a secure handshake trying to establish a secure connection it is very difficult and complex to debug.  Right now, you probably run a packet trace and then offload this trace dataset to an off-platform tool, or you post process the trace before you can begin analysis of the issue, wasting valuable time. Now, with a new Trace Analyzer function in MainView for Networks, you can view the in-depth analysis directly in MainView and get to problem resolution faster.

 

The Trace Analyzer function will provide the in-depth analysis of the hand shaking that it takes to create a secure connection without leaving MainView.  With your Trace Analyzer function, you can view the details about the data exchange immediately and get information about ciphers, session identities, protocol versions and certificates in near real-time.  Potential errors are highlighted so you can easily find network issues. This means your early in career employees can debug problems quickly and it also reduces the need to transfer trace datasets to an off-platform tool.

 

As part of this enhancement we have removed the necessity to pre-allocate trace datasets from the base MainView for IP product.  We will now dynamically allocate your trace datasets via a profile which can be changed to match your naming conventions and trace type needs such as SNIFF, WRITE, or RAW.  This reduces the chance that you run out of space and lose data because the trace was bigger than you allocated, or you forgot to allocate the proper type of trace dataset for your needs.

 

For more information on how to get this capability see the technical bulletin.

 

MainView for Networks centralizes and unifies IP administration while saving time and improving network reliability. You have total visibility and control over your mainframe network resources to quickly and proactively resolve problems before they can impact your digital business. It’s easy to implement and use this management and automation solution for IP, SNA, and VTAM automation. With exclusive technology, you can pace TCP/IP traffic so that critical jobs are prioritized and completed on time and ensure optimal system availability.

Over the last few months I have been asked about how to get MainView historical data into third party software or in-house written applications.  While BMC has always provided multiple ways to do this, we now have a single, more consistent method available to extract and transform MainView historical data.  It will provide you an easier integration with more metrics to your third-party applications, better reporting and improved audit capabilities allowing you to make better data-driven decisions and spend less time answering audit requests.

 

We are excited to deliver two new utilities with the MainView Infrastructure in two small programming enhancements. The first utility allows you to automate the extraction of the historical data into the standard archive files or create a GDG, so you can save the data for as long as you wish and will no longer miss an archive.  The second utility is a transformation utility that simplifies the selection of the metrics you are interested in with easy SQL-like statements.

 

The extraction utility will pull the data from online history files and store them in a GDG. It can also extract directly into a follow-on job step such as Merrill Associates MXG for use in creating a PDB or other reports.  The extraction utility can be used in conjunction with sort statements, that are built using the Data Maps provided in BBSAMP.  You can select only the metrics that you wish to use in an application, which is important in applications such as Splunk where the amount of data sent directly influences the cost. 

 

Using sort is fast and uses less processor, but sometimes requires an expert to figure out the offsets and write the sort statements.  This leads us to the second utility, an alternative to using sort, the data transformation utility.  This utility will allow you to take the data from the extraction utility and with easy to write SQL-like select statements pull from the extracted data directly by the element name.  You no longer need to figure out the offsets or create sort statements. The output can be a CSV file which is easily loaded into almost any third-party application. This utility will also take advantage of the Data Maps that are provided by the MainView products for assuring the appropriate metrics are gathered based on your select statements.

 

Data maps are being provided by each individual product and are in BBSAMP today.  The format of the name of the data map will be a tlaTDM where tla is the three-letters associated with the product.  For example, the data map for MQ is BBSTDM. Today maps are available for AUTOperator, MQ, and CICS with others following in short-order.

 

 

For information on how to get and implement the extraction utility please follow this link.

 

For information on how to get and implement the transformation utility please follow this link.

 

The MainView Infrastructure provides a common set of services and architecture that delivers a single view and control of your environment, centralized administration, intelligent alarms and proactive automation to provide a highly efficient, and holistic systems management experience.
