Hi,

I developed one automation tool using REXX scripts & ISPF panels.

Also, I have installed the tool in many machines as per users request in such a way that if they give "TSO toolname" in the TSO region of mainframes, it will display the panels so that user can enter his input & get the required outputs.

Now, I want to know how many users are using the tool everyday.

Is that possible to track the count as how many users are using that tool everyday & their Racf IDs?

How did you do this? What actually do you mean by "installing the tool in many machines"?

Try this, If you don't get better answers.

Add a logic to create and e-mail a report with all the details - userid, date etc. By this you can keep track of the count.

Rathipriya,
In the main rexx script, maintain a counter in a file. Whenever somebody uses this tool, the main script will read the counter from the file, update it and re-write to the same file.

I used to do this with my tools. Except that each user appended to a file, with date, time, toolname, and userid. And when a new month was detected, it would email the file to me and clear it out.

Also, you have to make code changes and deliver your changes to your many systems.

You also need to log the system id.

The collection of the log files becomes hard if you really have a large number of systems.
