Hi

Today I had a request to copy the JES3 CICS MSGUSR spool into a PDS.

Are there any Utilities to do this?

we are having aroung 30 CICS regions to be copied and has to be repeated for every 3 hours to indentify the application errors,doing this will there be any performance issues??

Thanks in Advance!!!!

Hello,

In tso/ispf, go into sdsf.

Then use XDC to copy the msgusr output to a dataset.

If the amount of data is small, there should be no performance issues.

Why not just route MSGUSR to a file for each region and scan them after the region comes down? If you have problems severe enough to require checking every three hours, that should be addressed as an issue in and of itself!

Sounds like the apps are so bad that it won't wait "until tomorrow". . .

SDSF is not for JES3 unless something has changed.

There are similar products though such as (E)JES from Phoenix Software. I don't know if it has a programmable interface, but knowing the developers, I can't imagine that it does not.

There may also be subsystems (writers) that you can use in JCL to get data from the spool. I've seen discussion of these and maybe there is something on the CBT tape. Again though, I've never used one.

(E)JES can be invoked from batch. Although I haven't tested it for doing something like what was asked, I'm sure the (E)JES sample data set has something similar enough to be adaptable.

Thanks for all who replied..

Actually the intension behind this it is to monitor the application status for every 3 hours without any manual intervention and not effecting the production environment.

Can i get any manual how to use the JES .

How does this ensure anything? If there are errors in the current msg user, and things are not in the "right place", it sounds like ikt is already too late. . . icon_confused.gif

I know this in response to an old question posted. but there is a new product from Document Systems that was just announced that can be used to
dynamically perform extraction of any CICS Sysout TDQ, including msgusr and write the contents it into a pds member.

Extraction can be set to occur based on date change, time interval,
number of lines, or manual intervention.

reference www.sysqmanager.com for additional information
