When troubleshooting issues surrounding maintenance, SMP/e is an effective tool to quickly assess your mainframe product software levels. Sometimes though, System Programmers need to validate that the maintenance APPLYd to a CSI has been rolled out to the environment. To ensure this is an easy process, SYSVIEW customers can utilize a sequence of commands to quickly achieve this check.
Release: 16.0 SYSVIEW-Performance Management; 15.0 SYSVIEW-Performance Management
The SYSVIEW LISTMODS command can be used to list the status of Sysview modules. SYSVIEW modules which are dynamically loaded will not reflect the fix level for the module until after a user has issued a command which uses the module. LISTMOD is particularly effective to ensure APPLYd PTFs have been successfully copied to the product runtime CMN4BLOD member.
For the example below, we're going to look for R16.0 PTF SO10680:
Once in the LISTMODS panel, issue a "F SO10680" and confirm there are two modules with this FixLevel:
Module Rels Bld AsmDate AsmTm Description Status Epaddr Type FixLevel MacLv AsmUser Owner
GSV@CMDT 16.0 0990 11/04/19 06:42 Command table LINKED 3C8D3308 NUCLEUS SO10680 SP724 SYSV160 SYSVIEW
GSV@FLDT 16.0 0990 11/04/19 06:42 Field table LINKED 3C8D3620 NUCLEUS SO10680 SP724 SYSV160 SYSVIEW
Issue "LINK DUMP GSV@FLDT" and confirm RMID(SO10680) is in the eyecatcher. That will tell you for sure that the fix is applied to SYSVIEW.
