[Mainframe] How to create an Exec time chart for a CICS transaction?

Hi there,

it might seem a silly question, but I've tried creating a measure for a specific CICS transaction from my PurePath dashlet (right click -> Create Measure -> Exec Time) and I've charted it, but no results are shown. When I've edited the "Exec Time" measure I realized it's recognized as "Java/.NET"...

Could you please help me understanding what's the correct way to chart the exec time of a CICS transaction in AM 6.3? Is it even possible?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Ciao, Raff

After you have set a filter (to filter out the MF method call) use the same measure in the "calculate" section. However, edit it, and under details, go to Transaction dropdown box. Select EXEC time.

In the BT columns, the default AVG column should now be avg EXEC timings (not exec total timings, that is the "Time" drown down selection under transaction in the bt measure.)

Profit.

If you need that translated to Italiano, let me know and I'll get on google real quick.

Thanks,

Grazie Collin, sei stato d'aiuto. Stavolta.

Do you need that translated to your freedom language? :-)

Ciao, Raff

Ok - nevermind on this one :) Just thought i'd post that I was able to get the stuff I need working by using the "Mainframe - CICS Transaction" BT Evaluation/Filter/Splitting Values that comes out of the box (didn't even know that was there - sweet!) :)

Did you get this to work? I am attempting to do the same thing - chart the response time of CICS transactions (which could be buried within a PurePath) and am running into the same issue here. I've followed the same steps of creating "CICS transaction from my PurePath dashlet (right click -> Create Measure -> Exec Time) and I've charted it, but no results are shown." I've also created a BT using the exec time measure I previously built as the filter and added it to the calculate results. However when I try to edit it, I do not see a transaction dropdown box:

We are using v6.5.
