One of the most frequently asked questions is what is going on in the MUF? To find the answer to that question, you can issue a status by:
a) Submitting a console command /F MUFjobname,status and navigating to the bottom of the MUF JESMSGLG
b) Submit a DBUTLTY with a control card of COMM OPTION=STATUS and navigating to the bottom of the MUF JESMSGLG
c) From TSO go into Sysview (SV), issue DCLIST, select MUF of choice, then issue DCTASKS
Unfortunately with (c) sysview, if Datacom CICS Service Facility (DBC) is configured for a CICS region to have 20 tasks, but there are only 3 online users running transactions at the moment, the sysview display will show all 20 tasks. This can take up screen real-estate and leave the user with information that is of no importance. There can be even more clutter if more than one CICS region is connected to a MUF instance.
The image down below shows for a specific MUF instance, there are two CICS regions connected (CICSPA and CICSPD) with CICSPA configured to have a total of 4 TASKS and CICSPD configured for a total 20. (Not all 20 show since the display is full).
The way to enhance your sysview display would be to:
