Question:

We would like to have an any alert in Sysview to trigger if a CICS transaction ABC1 has not executed in a 3 minutes period between 9am and 5pm

 

Answer:

The CICS metric TSUMELAP can be used to perform that action requested. 


TSUMELAP - Transaction summary - Elapsed time 

This is the elapsed time since the last transaction with the specified tranid has executed. 

The values are checked once a minute during transaction summary threshold processing. 

A CICS threshold definition should be setup with the following parameters: 

Metric name: TSUMELAP 
Resourc1: ABC1 
Limit: 00:03:00 
Dur: 1 
TrigLvl: STATUS 
TimeBeg: 09:00:00 
TimeEnd: 17:00:00 

Additional Information:
The elapsed time between transaction ID execution can be viewed on the CSTATUS command. 

CSTATUS; SELECT VARIABLE EQ TSUMELAP
