Below are more details on the new features and functions within

MainView for
CICS

V
6.5
.00




Support for
IBM
®
CICS Transaction Server v5.1.
that

provides additional new task performance data, this information
i s available i n CMRDETL data as well as the TASK and CHIST views.



Support for IBM CICS Transaction Gateway (CTG) v9.0.
that

provides new gateway performance
data, this information is availabl
e in the CTGSERV and CTGCICS views.



New CTGSERVM view


additional statistical information about the performance of your non z/OS
CTG Servers

-

New CTGHSTRY

prompter dialog allows you to set selection criteria for processing CTG
task performance data.
New
CTG history dictionary, CTGDETL, is available for batch processing




New
detailed

trace activation for an active task
. You can now
get a detailed trace without having to
set it up before the tasks become active.
This gives you the
ability to debug at the ta
sk level

which
will give f
aster mean time to resolution








The CREGSYS View has been enhanced with new data and divided into 3 new view sets that provide
information about region
-
wide settings and attributes.
These new view sets are CREGSYT for
Dispa
tcher and Timing Settings, CREGSYA for Storage and Facility Settings, and CREGSYM for
Monitoring and Statistics settings.

The following are the views that were added and actions to be
able to update these attributed were added.

1.
