Description:

When WebCenter is first accessed, the initial screen contains option 'IP Traffic Summary' (under fields User Name and Password). If 'IP Traffic Summary' is clicked on, the presented screen has a section with the headline 'Subsystem Traffic.' We explain how the relevant application names are obtained, so that percentages can be calculated.

Solution:

To get the subsystem application names, we use an internal command--ASINFO. The ASINFO format for 'DB2,' 'CICS,' 'IMS' and 'MQ' are:

/*
/* Find DB2 address spaces
/*
   intcmd '-SHOW ASINFO PRIVATE PGMNAME=DSNYASCP'
/*
/* Find CICS address spaces
/*
   intcmd '-SHOW ASINFO PRIVATE PGMNAME=DFHSIP'
/*
/* Find IMS address spaces
/*
   intcmd '-SHOW ASINFO PRIVATE PGMNAME=DFSMVRC0'
   intcmd '-SHOW ASINFO PRIVATE PGMNAME=DFSRRC00'
/*
/* Find MQ address spaces
/*
   intcmd '-SHOW ASINFO PRIVATE PGMNAME=CSQXJST'
   intcmd '-SHOW ASINFO PRIVATE PGMNAME=CSQYASCP'

Note: 'Other' includes TCP traffic not done by DB2, CICS, IMS or MQ, plus all traffic from IP protocols other than TCP. There can be a large percentage of non-TCP traffic, particularly if EE (UDP) is being used.
