Identify, visualize, and analyze CICS transactions and drill down to see application events in detail

A CICS Performance Analyzer for Individual CICS Transactions

Rocket C/Prof is the ideal CICS monitoring tool that allows you to see individual transactions executed across multiple CICS regions, so you can spend less time sorting through diagnostic data and more time solving problems.

Capture, Analyze Problems While Occurring

CICS performance monitoring captures and analyzes problems when they first occur with point-in-time snapshots of CICS internal trace data, reducing the need to reproduce issues.

“The difference between Monday, June 5th, 2023, and Monday, June 12th, 2023, in CPU for the transaction was 7 hours 23 minutes 50.662684 seconds and only a 951 reduction in transactions.” - Large Insurance Company

IBM® CICS® Transaction Server for z/OS is a critical part of your mainframe environment. Ensuring applications run well and you can quickly find and fix errors are daily requirements.

C\Prof is the CICS performance analyzer that provides the details you need to diagnose, visualize, and analyze problems in your CICS applications faster, so you can spend less time sorting through diagnostic data and more time-solving problems.

Having minimal impact on your business-critical applications, C\Prof runs outside of the CICS address space and requires no changes to CICS itself. CICS performance monitoring allows you to collect and interpret the trace data with significantly less impact on your business operations. With a concise format that’s easy to use, Rocket C\Prof helps application engineers navigate their trace data without relying on system administrators. System administrators are now more available for other business needs, and the efficiency of the whole system IT team increases.

Whether collecting data continuously or in short bursts, C\Prof insights allow you to:

  • Select transactions based on criteria
  • Sift through millions of transactions with powerful find, filter, save, and sort
  • Identify programs used by a transaction and the performance profile of each
  • Follow the program flow across multiple CICS regions
  • Review application calls made by each program in rich detail with elapsed time analysis
  • Dive deep into trace events associated with each transaction or application call to identify the cause of a delay or problem
