  1. BMC Transaction Management John Barnard MAINVIEW Development Director

  2. BMC Transaction Management Value BMC Transaction Management helps IT improve business service delivery by detecting, isolating and resolving business transaction performance problems across the enterprise. • Understand there is a problem before “the phone rings” • Ensures applications meet their business needs • Increased revenue and improved customer satisfaction

  3. What do customers do without Transaction Management • End users flood the service desk with complaints aboutpoor service (performance, availability, or accuracy) • Monitor components (databases, servers, operatingsystems, etc) without considering the end user orquality of service delivered • Point fingers when there is a problem and say “My piece (db, server, OS) was working great” • Waste time and money researching and replicating problems • IT is viewed as an inhibitor of business rather than an enabler • Business is lost due to failed and poor performing transactions

  4. Moving Beyond Silos 80% BMC Transaction Management moves beyond technology monitoring to provide the end user’s point of view of application performance

  10. The Mainframe World • MVTA Introduction • MVTA Technical Description • MVTA Next Steps

  11. How many ways are there to interoperate in z/OS? • IBM Software and System groups have created a nightmare over time! • The nightmare is bad for customers • The multiplicity of interoperation facilities has grown over many years • As with freeway systems….create one and people drive on it! • Applications that are tried and true do not change unless there is a compelling business reason for it. • Critical business logic that works today may suddenly stop if a developer opts to use the latest ‘gee whiz’ technology • Emerging facilities are adopted and ‘glued’ on to the old methods • Companies buy companies and wire systems together • It’s a mess!

  13. MAINVIEW Transaction Analyzer (MVTA) • MVTA is part of the MAINVIEW family • Benefits from common infrastructure and communication • Utilizes data from existing BMC monitoring solutions • Correlates transaction information • Consolidates transaction information from different subsystems across the mainframe environment • Tracks transaction through and across z/OS environments • User sees the path taken for each unit of work in the logical order in which they were invoked • Near real time • Improves debugging capabilities • Provides information about transactions as they flow • Makes it easier to pinpoint problems (problem isolation) • Application-level units of work summarize what happened during the transaction • No need to hunt through several products to see where breakdown occurred

  15. Example transaction flow • CICS-DB2 Transaction • 1. Transaction TRN1 in Region CICS1 on image MVS1 • 2. TRN1 Invokes DB2 system DB21using Plan PLAN1 • 3. TRN1 Uses Distributed Program Link (DPL) to program PROG2 in CICS2 on image MVS2. This runs under the standard mirror task CSMI • 4. CSMI invokes DB2 system DB22 using Plan PLAN2 • 5. CSMI returns • 6. Transaction TRN1 returns • 7. UOR created • TRN1 has a UOR – UOR1 • DB21 using PLAN1 has a UOR – UOR2 • CSMI has a UOR – UOR3 • DB22 using PLAN2 has a UOR – UOR4

  17. On Demand Correlation • MVTA Correlates Transaction data On Demand • End user request for a VIEW • Request via View Based API • Any Timer driven process requesting it • Observes the adage – Keep the data local! • Reduced overhead. The price is paid when a user requests correlation • Increased flexibility by not storing all data in the same location

  18. Correlation View

  19. Drill down from Problem Isolation to Diagnosis • MAINVIEW Transaction Analyzer provides problem isolation based on information provided by underlying MAINVIEW monitors • MAINVIEW monitors provide diagnosis via drill down from MVTA • Using standard MAINVIEW architecture, MVTA hiperlinks to UOW/UOR information in: • MAINVIEW for CICS • MAINVIEW for IMS • MIANVIEW for DB2 • MAINVIEW WEBSPHERE for MQ

  20. CICS Drill Down to MAINVIEW for CICS

  21. CICS Direct Link to MAINVIEW for CICS

  22. CICS Drill Down on File to see delay reason

  23. IMS Drill down to MAINVIEW for IMS • Requires MVIMS 4.2 with PTFs • BPI9796, BPI9802, BPI9797, BPK1153

  24. IMS Hyperlink into MAINVIEW for IMS

  25. DB2 Drill down to MAINVIEW for DB2 • Hiperlink on the Count to expand rows • Hiperlink on the DB2 ID field to get thread information.

  31. Next Steps for MVTA • Additional z/OS support • Integration with MAINVIEW Websphere for Application Server (MVWAS) • Tracking transaction flows at the enterprise level. • MVTA captures MQ related transaction flows when they enter z/OS • For MQ applications following ‘best practices’ where MQ MSGIDs are unique, MVTA answer important questions: • A CICS task executes MQPUT to a Queue for which an IMS trigger is defined • Question: What IMS transaction ran and how well did it perform? • MVTA does not capture MQ related flows before they enter z/OS • From where did the initial MQ request originate in the distributed environment and how well did application processes associated with it perform

  32. Qnami! By MQSoftware

  33. People, Process and Information Delivers Business Application Value • Information • The management tools that address the visibility of the business application and expose information in the appropriate semantics • People • The virtual and/or dedicated application support team (and others) • Process • The organization's way of providing business application support and the interaction of the support team with other members of the enterprise Efficiency Depends on People, Process and Information

  37. Q Nami! Transaction Monitoring Support Java API C API CICS API COM/.NET API Q Nami! provides a robust transaction monitoring solution regardless of technologies used or architectural styles employed.

  38. Business Performance Information Business Performance Information through the Payload Monitoring Engine

  39. Business Notification Payload monitoring provides the ability to set business thresholds for out of range payload data and take appropriate automated action

  40. Technical User Perspective Business service views from performance and availability data provides immediate status of business application with respect to infrastructure performance

  41. Technical User Perspective IT operations and application support teams can observe the real-time transaction status of transactions flowing through the business application

  42. Technical Notification Notification of a transaction that has failed leads IT Operations and application support teams to view the location of where the transaction has failed

  43. Problem Determination in Multi-Tier, Heterogeneous Technology Business Applications • Focus of discussion is on problem determination and management functionality of Q Nami! • Q Nami! understands the status of a transaction at any distributed location with some Mainframe presence • MVTA understands the status of a transaction at any location on the mainframe • ….. but, there are other virtual team members who gain value from knowing the overall transaction status and pinpointing causes of problems • Result: Work more efficiently, lower business application support costs, decrease dramatically the time to resolve a problem
