Issue/Introduction

Executing  the VARS command in Sysview it returns about 1500 lines, while the data returned via the API are much less.

 

Environment

Release : 15.0

Component : SYSVIEW

Cause

Total variable for all components should be about 1527.

CICS MVS MQ = 1149

IMS JVM TCP = 378

The exact number if CICS related variables or metrics will vary based on whether your current target ASID is a CICS region.  If a CICS, only those variables valid for the CICS release will be displayed. It can vary slightly by release.

By default, the VARS command will display all variables from all components if the VARS command is entered with no parameters.

Entering the following VARS command,  only CICS MVS and MQ variables would be returned:

VARS CICS MVS MQ

The possible cause could be having  initial parameters specified in the own profile for the VARS command.

To determine this, enter the following:

PROFILE VARS

Select the "Miscellaneous" section

Look the line: "Default parameters"


Or, from the VARS command display, enter:

QUERY DEFAULTPARMS

Resolution

Entering VARS ALL will show you everything regardless of enabled/disabled.
