Tracking transaction on Interval Control


Article ID: 189952


Updated On:




We have a need to track transactions which are on the ICE chain and restart the transactions if they fail. 

We had situation where Transactions on ICE fail when DB2 crashed and they had to be manually restarted to put them back to ICE chain.

We would like to know if SYSVIEW monitor can be used to monitor a tran  that has not run for a certain interval, is not actively scheduled in the ICE chain, and later take an action to start it so no manual intervention is required.



Release : 16.0

Component : SYSVIEW


Metric TSUMELAP and threshold definition option OPS/MVS event notification will achieve what you're asking

TSUMELAP is the elapsed time since SYSVIEW had last seen the transaction run.   

The example threshold definition below will be triggered if it 3 minutes had passed since transaction CATR in region SYSVC690 was last run. 

When the threshold is triggered, event CAGSVY0001 is sent to OPS/MVS. You can handle the event from the OPS/MVS side to start the transaction or any other logic decisions you need to make based on the monitoring data provided by SYSVIEW.
