    QUESTION:

    What is the benefit of having the FIC2 transaction active? Can I disable it?


    ANSWER:

    FIC2 transaction is started to collect CICS and MainView for CICS statistics.  The CICS statistics are the ones you selected under section SMF Data Recording Periods in CMRSOPT view (not available in the CMRSOPT macro).
    When you choose to activate transaction FIC2 it will execute every minute.
     

    MainView for CICS statistics are used:
    •    In all full-screen graphic displays
    •    In the threshold messages FT046, FT047, FT048, FT049, and FT522. These messages are monitored by @PRB4 (FT046-FT049), @GLBT (FT046), @GLBU (FT522) and the CREGPRB view (FT046-FT049).

    If you do not need both SMF statistics and CMR statistics, you can choose not to activate the FIC2 transaction.

    Note:  FIC2 will not run in a CPSM CMAS or WUI region, no matter what is specified in CMRSOPnn.
