Hi,

Is there any way to find the list of active users who use the mainframe environment?

TSO users, yes. All users, no, at least I don't think so.

Thanks for the replies Kevin and Non Serviam.
I use an extra emulation software. I assume you are asking about this.

the TSU command does not work for me. Is there any other option?

We use RACF, which tracks the last date and time each valid account used resources (signed on, submitted a job, started a task, ..) on the mainframe. This is one way to know who is using the mainframe environment. Although you do have to consider started tasks that have RACF ids, production accounts, and so forth.

RACF users with an allocated TSO segment should remove the STC uids, but that may be site specific.

For CICS, take a look at the INQUIRE TERMINAL statement. Remember that you can use INQUIRE commands in BROWSE flavour to get the list of users.

Vidya,


If you are using SDSF the following command should work.


Code:
PRE *
OWNER *
DA OTSU
