Question:

Can I use SYSVIEW to monitor resources utilizing excessive CPU?

 

Answer:

CA SYSVIEW provides a number of threshold variables to allow monitoring of CPU usage (percentage or time), JOBCPU%, JOBCPUTM, and JOBCPUTT to name a few. You can also specify RSCEATTR  (Resource Attribute Qualifier; ie: TSU, STC, JOB, SYS, or INIT) on a job-related threshold definition to delineate between different types of jobs.

An example definition on the THRESH display to trigger when any address space uses more than 25% of the available CPU:

Name         Resource             RsceAttr    Limit   Pct   Warning
JOBCPUT% =                        =             25.00   75    18.75

 

An example definition to trigger when any TSO user address space uses more than 10% of the available CPU:

Name         Resource             RsceAttr    Limit   Pct   Warning
JOBCPUT% =                        TSU         10.00   75      7.5

 

Additional Information:

For a complete list of variable definitions inclusive of CPU metrics see the SYSVIEW VARS command.
