For CKTI transaction, Thresholds value has been set (via CTRANOPT command) to NOTHRESH:

However, CICS Alerts (CALERTS command) screen still shows entries for CKTI transaction:

 

Jobname  Name     Arg1     Arg2        Task        Value  Status   

PFCXL8   CPUTIME  CKTI                   45     32.92078  PROBLEM

UFCXL2   TSUMRATE AN07                             12070  PROBLEM                    


Is this correct?   

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : SYSVIEW

Resolution

The changing of CICS transaction options will not affect those tasks or transactions that are already executing. In the case of CKTI, it was most likely already active when the line update was made. If a new CKTI transaction were to start, it would get the new options assigned to it. The CICS transaction option definitions are loaded by the CICSDATA subtask running the SYSVIEW main services address space. They are available prior to any SYSVIEW for CICS data collection initialization. If the SYSVIEW for CICS data collector is restarted within a region, the definition option values will be assigned to those transactions in flight.
