Hello icon_biggrin.gif

We are doing a transition from APA to Strobe and we found that Strobe do not return the same information as S03 APA's report, that is, the load module summary, that include:

- Module loaded
- Location: JPA, PLPA, etc.
- execution count

I cant obtain this information with Strobe, i Know and Compuware confirms.

Anyone knows how can i obtain that, perhaps with a rexx ? Any solution?

Thanks in advance

Hello,

One of the costs often associated with replacing a tool is the loss of some of the functionality of that tool. . . Indeed, it sometimes happens that the loss is of some feature that caused the tool to be purchased in the first palce.

What does Compuware suggest? Is there an add-on that may be licensed? Will they do what you want for a fee?

If that functionality is completely gone, what will be the impact?

Hi Dick,

Compuware say that the information provided by S03 APA report is not important for improve aplication performance, and thats true , at least in part.

However, this information is very important for us.

We think that could be obteined from SMF or directly invoking system services. I dont know exactly how to do it, but sure someone have a rexx or an idea of how to do it.

It may help if you post some of the output that you currently use from this.

Someone may have some rexx code but the issue is not knowing rexx. It is knowing how to navigate within the system.

Even if they do not consider this important, i suspect they might provide a way to get it (possibly even rexx, but not likely) if your organization is willing to pay for it.

search the contents supervisor control blocks. Specifically the CDEs and LPDEs. It is all in memory, you just have to run the chains. I think there are some execs out there that do this.

Hi Dick,

Compuware dont provide any other way to obtein this information.

I know is not enough have a good rexx kowledge, but probably the tool for obtein this information could be build on it.

The APA s03 report returns this information:
