    Abstract

    How can you manage your CICS Transaction Gateway systems on z/OS so as to meet the growing availability and performance requirements of your business?

    The CICS Transaction Gateway V7.1 provides a wealth of new systems monitoring functionality, and together with the new IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for CICS TG product and the support for CICS TG statistics in CICS Performance Analyzer for z/OS (CICS PA), provides you with a set of enhanced capacity planning and problem determination capabilities.

    The first part of this IBM Redbooks publication concentrates on product installation and customization for both the CICS Transaction Gateway V7.1 for z/OS and IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for CICS TG product. The second part of the book highlights the new systems monitoring functionality in CICS Transaction Gateway V7.1 for z/OS and how it is complemented by the new IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for CICS TG product and the support for CICS TG statistics in CICS PA. A set of typical customer scenarios are used to demonstrate the practical usage of the new functions, in the following four problem determination areas:

    - Diagnosing common problems

    - Diagnosing system slow downs

    - High Availability with XA and OMEGAMON XE

    - Historical data analysis

    Together, these scenarios can be used to quickly determine the root cause of typical production problems and provide in-depth information to allow you to plan, build, and monitor a highly available CICS Transaction Gateway systems to provide SOA access to your existing CICS applications.
