Title: Introducing C\Prof – visualizing CICS applications using only the CICS internal trace
Presenter: Ezriel Gross, CEO of Circle Software Inc
Abstract: The CICS trace is the richest source of detail about how transactions were processed by CICS – vital for diagnosing system and application problems. However the auxiliary trace is expensive to collect and the trace itself is difficult and time-consuming to interpret. But what if these impediments to using the trace were no longer true? This session introduces C\Prof, a lightweight solution that exploits the internal trace to provide the most comprehensive visualization of every transaction processed by CICS – in near real time. And all this is achieved without a single change to the CICS region.
