SYSVIEW Performance Management


Running SYSVIEW 15.0, z/OS 2.4, after an IPL, SYSVIEW and SYSVUSER come up completely. 
A minute later, CICS starts and puts out these messages:

+GSVC720I CA SYSVIEW for CICS request started                                   
+GSVC714I INITPARM parms: GSVI=*,USERID=*,START=*,SSID=*

After bouncing both SYSVIEW and SYSVUSER, the CICS initialization works fine.  Why wouldn't it connect in the first place?


SYSVIEW 15.0 & 16.0 - z/OS supported releases - 



The CAS9 procedure was not started before SYSVIEW startup. 


1. Looking at the first start of SYSVIEW (post IPL), there are error messages:  

11.35.42 STC08834  GSVX618E (DATALIB) Module CAIRIMC not found    <==  CAS9 is not started! 
11.35.42 STC08834  GSVX619E (DATALIB) CA Common Services not installed
11.35.42 STC08834  GSVX617E (DATALIB) LMP code validation service unavailable,
11.35.45 STC08834  GSVX532E (SERVER) #RIMSTAT FLOID failed, rc 00000008
11.35.45 STC08834  GSVX617E (SERVER) LMP code validation service unavailable, 
11.35.54 STC08834  GSVX637I (MAIN) CICSLOGR task attached
11.35.54 STC08834  GSVX570I (CICSLOGR) CICSLOGR task initialization started
11.35.54 STC08834  GSVX532E (CICSLOGR) #RIMSTAT FLOID failed, rc 00000008
11.35.54 STC08834  GSVX617E (CICSLOGR) LMP code validation service unavailable,

This is not correct and this means that CAS9 is NOT properly started in this environment and CICSLOGR and CICSDATA are not connected to any logstreams. 
CAS9 must be started BEFORE SYSVIEW, the order of these products should be checked at IPL time: First the security product, then CAS9, followed by SYSVIEW...

2. Looking at the second start of SYSVIEW, once it is bounced:  

There are NO error messages about CAS9 and CICSDATA and CICSLOGR are connected to their logstreams: 

13.38.58 STC08911  GSVX271I (CICSDATA) CICSDATA connected to log stream GSVX.SYSDATA.PLOT.xxxx type CICSDATA.PLOT....
13.38.59 STC08911  GSVX271I (CICSLOGR) CICSLOGR connected to log stream GSVX.CICSLOGR.EITL.xxxx type CICSLOGR.EIT

It is mandatory that CAS9/CAIRIM is initialized BEFORE SYSVIEW. 
CA SYSVIEW does check the options installed and the presence of the LMPKEYS, this problem is causing these messages.
CAIRIMC and FLOID are the LMPKEY checking modules and that check was failing during the first start of SYSVIEW.
