Hi,
I have been trying to display the CA7 job scheduling data more graphically as in a flow chart. I have been using SASSBTR utility to export all CA7 scheduling screens of LJOB screen to a dataset. Then I evaluated this dataset using EAZYTRIEVE to get the job names and requirements,triggers etc. This was exported to a database and picked up from there into a Java program for graphical display. Its been very successful

However, I am wondering if there is an easier way to get the data out of CA7 than doing all this. I mean CA7 will be storing it in some file right? So can I get it from there instead ??...anybody know anything about this? Is there any other interface available?

Also more importantly, some of our jobs are triggered by files which are NDMed from other LPARs. But there just does not seem to be any command to get the file through which a dummy job is triggered....does any one know a command? LDSN works only if i know the DSN....but its not always shown in LJOB command(when run on a dummy/file triggered job)

Hello abhijit and welcome to the forum,

Have you talked with your CA7 admin?

They should be able to tell you what reporting tool(s) are available in your environment.

You might also open an issue with CA support asking what they recommend for retrieving data from CA7.

How do you invoke SASBTR utility? Does it come as a part of CA-7? Is there a way to view the jobs in ca7 in a flow chart way?


Thanks,
Ajay

You cant view the jobs as a flow chart in CA7 itself....most tools like the one i developed or HORIZONT's XINFO

http://www.horizont-it.com/public_html/xinfo/xxrdca7e.ppt

load it into some other tables by reading CA7 VSAM files(Dont ask!)...I did that by capturing the LJOB,job=* output into a dataset and analyzing it using EAZYTRIEVE or REXX

For SASSBTR search the CA7 topics...there are sample JCLs available to invoke CA7 commands from JCL and capture output.

Yeah I guess I ll ask around with admin....I do know it stores in VSAM files..guess I ll havta use FILEAID

CA7 r11.1 includes a new flowcharting tool. The data is extracted via a batch job then loaded into visio.
However weve only just installed this release and have had little time to check the results.

There is a producte produced by ASG called Workload planner that can extract the data from CA7 and build flow charts from it.
