Issue/Introduction

Running with CA SYSVIEW Release 16.0 with CICS/TS 5.5, while reviewing statistics using CSYSDATA, in certain intervals "Transactions monitored" field is always 1 for CICS regions. Is this because of an incorrect configuration?

Resolution

Everything appears to be set up fine.  The CSYSDATA transaction count shows monitored transaction counts within the current interval. 

So that value is reset at the end of the interval, which here appears to be 15 minutes. The CICS total transaction count shown in the display is the value of total transactions whether they were monitored or not, that have occurred since last start of SYSVIEW, or if a reset was issued. 

The CICS interval transactions would be all transactions within the current interval, monitored or not.
