Description:

Can Sysview be run as a batch job and is there sample JCL available?

Solution:

GSVXBAT executes any valid CA SYSVIEW command so that you can exercise components in CA SYSVIEW and save output for later viewing.

He is sample JCL:

//JOB  your facility jobcard
//SYSVIEW  EXEC PGM=GSVXBAT,REGION=512K,
//             PARM='LINECNT=66,MENUOFF,SHOWINP=NO'
//STEPLIB  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.SYSVIEW.SCSYLOAD
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD *
  COMMAND=(SCMENTRY *,*,*,MVS,SMS)
  SCROLL                     SCROLL THROUGH ALL LINES
  COMMAND=(END)              END THE BATCH SESSION
/*

GSVXBAT is documented further in CA SYSVIEW Performance Management Administration Guide in Chapter 9 Using the Batch Interface.
