OVERVIEW

AUTOMON/LogAnalyzer for Batch provides a means to quickly compile information useful for both problem determination and performance tuning. Statistical analysis provided in the synopsis reports gives the frequency that these problems occur. Allowing systems people to create and establish a visual precedence which will yield the best returns in system performance.

AUTOMON/LogAnalyzer for Batch works in conjunction and as an enhancement to AUTOMON/CICS. Experienced AUTOMON users are aware of the valuable information written to the history log. Diagnosis of this log on a regular basis proves to be a valuable aid to both problem determination and performance tuning. AUTOMON/LogAnalyzer takes the information provided by AUTOMON and produces a clear easy to read report of the problems encountered within your system. The report may be distributed to both system and application programmers to speed problem determination and rectification.

The AUTOMON/CICS history database contains a compilation of all system conditions occurring outside of user specified threshold values. The messages written to this database provide information pertaining to many exceptional and degradational conditions occurring within the system. In addition, all transaction abends, storage violations and system crash conditions are recorded in this VSAM file. The data within the history database is an invaluable aid to problem determination and performance tuning. A regular review of the history database file can help the system programmer to maintain optimal performance from all CICS regions. However, the sheer volume of information provided can sometimes make the evaluation of this important data a time consuming process. That is why AUTOMON/LA was developed.

CICS on-line system availability can be directly translated to dollars. Unscheduled "down time" or slow "response time" can cause lost customers, departmental inefficiency, lost orders, scheduling problems and overall inefficiency. Once CICS problems are encountered, those responsible for its availability and performance need to find permanent solutions to these problems quickly. Whether you have a large or small scale on line system, AUTOMON/LogAnalyzer's analysis aids in providing immediate solutions in many aspects of CICS. These solutions allow you to operate your CICS system with minimum down time and maximum throughput. This results in a smoothly operating on-line environment and most of all satisfied end users. Easy to read reports allow your system programmers to remedy the detected problems quickly and easily. The prime concern of AUTOMON/LA/BATCH is to save time in problem determination, while at the same time reducing system programmer load and easing change control.
