COBANAL TOOL is an open source available in the below link
http://www.cbttape.org/updates.htm

File # 321 COBOL Analyzer from Roland Schiradin & post processor NEW

I was able successfully run the tool on Mainframe. The result of this is as attached which is a detailed report of different COBOL verbs and statements used and not used.

With the above results, can any one suggest how we can use the tool in Mainframe MIPS reduction.


Thank you so much for your help

Screenshots are really useless, just select/copy/past from your emulator and use the Code tags.

You've chopped the data, because it doesn't fit on your screen anyway.

COBANAL is going to be fairly blunt for identifying performance issues.

Have you looked at the program? Do you know that performance is bad? How? Other tools (if you have them) can identify where there are bottlenecks.

Forget COBANAL, it wasn't designed for your task.

Start with the code and any further information any regular tools you may have tell you.

Dear Moderator,
I am sorry for the inconvenience caused, but we work on the VDI(Client network) so copy pasting from emulator is not allowed. Hence was the screen shots shared.

Thank you for the above reply.

We are looking to identify at library level which all programs, there is scope for performance improvement(MIPS reduction).

Please suggest if you have any tools of that kind.

Thanks and Regards,
Venugopal

How is this restricted - software or by rules?
If rules then just copy and paste to a text editor, change sensitive data and copy/paste to the reply box (with code tags).

You won't get anywhere trying to use COBANAL to identify performance issues.

Please don't reinvent something doubtful. Use the one which is already there in the Market (unless your firm doesn't wants to pay or you are doing it for yourself.)
