COBOL Transaction informations

Postby Ieet » Tue Mar 24, 2009 7:32 pm

Hi All,

I was hoping that someone could help me...
I am trying to make a module and a cobol program.

The module is supposed to run through all the tasks running in the cics, and finding their names, resources ect. (Might need to make this in assembler, to avoid having cobol directly interfacing with the cics?).

Then the module should pass the informations to a cobol program, displaying it.

Is there any way to do such a thing?

Thank you for the help, in advance.

Regards

Hello and welcome to the forum,

The module is supposed to run through all the tasks running in the cics, and finding their names, resources ect.
Where did this requirement originate?

Is there any way to do such a thing?
This kind of code can be written but only by people with a very deep understanding of cics, system control blocks, and assembler.

There are already built-in cics transactions to look at the cics environment - ask your cics system support which you might be permitted to use (many are restricted).

If you explain what is needed (not how you'd like to get it), someone may have a suggestion.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hi Dick,

Thank you for the welcome...

Working on the very deep understanding of cics, system control blocks and assembler. Any hints are welcome.

The built in task list is quite nice, and it really contains the informations I need to extract to "somewhere" where I can use it in some custom made programs.

What I need to do is add in certain informations to the task list, based on DB2 queries. Also only displaying and marking specific tasks is needed, because the system is running alot of tasks which informations would just be "garbage" to make it difficult to find the relevant tasks to monitor.

Preferably, I would like to make some input controls also.

I much hope that someone have some insights.

Hello,

Working on the very deep understanding of cics, system control blocks and assembler.
The best way i know is prolonged and varied use - typically years rather than days or weeks simply due to the number of "things" that make up depth.

I much hope that someone have some insights.
Until you more clearly mention what you want to accomplish (specifics rather than generalities), few will be able to offer anything.

Depending on what you want to accomplish, you may want to pull data from SMF records rather than trying to gather information in real-time.
Hope this helps,

Hi,

What I want to accomplish is a way to check if tasks with specific names is running and how long they have been running for.

Nevermind on answering that.
There is a cics transactions service to display such informations.

A reference to such, do not help me getting the informations and presenting them in a more user friendly manner.
