Question:
Does AXIVP01 job execution give any value when working and testing on CA7 and CA11. 
Environment:
z/os, CA Datacom/AD 15.0 
Answer:
Testing CA7 and CA11 jobs and restarting them is just enough to test CA Datacom/AD.
By doing that you are testing Datacom underneath as well. 

AXIVPxx jobs are just to verify the Datacom installation. 
Additional Information:
AXIVP01 job is one verification job to test if the CA Datacom/AD 15.0 environment has been successfully installed. 

AXIVP01 executes under SQL some basic requests against some Dynamic System Tables. 

You may read more here: 
http://docops.ca.com/ca-datacom/15-0/en/reference/system-tables-reference/dynamic-system-tables 
Extract: 
"Dynamic System Tables (located in the SYS area, base 1000) exist to provide real-time access to CA Datacom®/DB system information...." 

So, the differences you see are normal. 
The first AXIVP01 must have been executed just after installation/upgrade. 
The second AXIVP01 you recently executed, will show different values as it goes depending on other activities around the Multi-User. 

These tables changes continuously depending on what is going on in the Multi-User and the actions that a DBA may have taken. AXIVP01 is useful after applying new CA Datacom/AD 15.0 maintenance, to verify that SQL is still working as it should and produce no error message.
