The SYSVIEW software mainly used to take print from mainframe. It is more or less similar to SDSF. But SYSVIEW takes considerable amount of CPU. Can somebody list down the advantages/reasons of using SYSVIEW over SDSF other than printing?

If you are talking about CA-SYSVIEW both of those statements are inaccurate.

SYSVIEW is a complete performance management tool. SDSF is for System (Spool) Display. There is very little similarity.

I suggest you do some research on SYSVIEW.

You might start with this:

But the SYSVIEW package which we have in our mainframe is similar to SDSF and primarily used to see joblog. Please see the attached scheen shots. 'SYSVIEW PM' could be a performance management software.

SYSVIEW can look at the spool. It is not the reason organizations use sysview. SYSVIEW does much, much more. It may be that you/your group is only permitted to use this part of the product. It is usually used by system and database support people.

The screen you posted (in the future, please do not attach screen prints - a simple copy/paste with the "Code" tag is preferred) looks like the sub-menu of SYSVIEW called "User - Job and Output Management". This is only a small bit of SYSVIEW and is not why the product is chosen for use by an organization.

If you look around on the CA site, you will find much more info. Keep in mind that SYSVIEW is now part of the "Unicenter" brand.

None of my current systems is using SYSVIEW, but recently (on a different set of systems) we used SYSVIEW to look at/monitor the following:
Operating System (z_os)
CICS
CA-Datacom
IMS
MQ
others. . .
