Can anyone let me know how is the number of IMS calls to database is kept track of automatically without using any WS variable. What is the maximum number of IMS calls that can be made to database in a COBOL program.
There is a built in reporting utility that you can run as part of the job. I don't have a lot of interest in it because there are more performance-minded tools that do it too.
The IBM built in will give a list of each PCB in the PSB and shows the calls and type of calls for them.
I've noticed that only very experienced DBAs can use that information wisely. I've seen a lot of people use that same information to do some stupid things and try to fix the wrong problems. That's why I use STROBE and Application Performance Analyzer.
