Circle Software is proud to announce the latest version of C\Prof, version 1 release 2.

C\Prof is a new approach for gaining business and operational value from the CICS internal trace. What makes C\Prof different is its ability to peek inside CICS without interfering with its execution. C\Prof is not a monitor and does not require changes to CICS. Unlike traditional approaches, C\Prof makes the CICS trace inexpensive to capture and simple to interpret.

In this release:

  • Centralized monitoring and control of trace collection across LPARs via the C\Prof Region List and the new SERVER collection mode.
  • New C\Prof trace control program allows C\Prof to automatically manage the state (STOPPED or STARTED) and size of the CICS internal trace as required.
  • The C\Prof trace viewer has moved to option 3 Trace on the C\Prof primary option menu. You can now also use this option to import auxiliary trace data sets into the C\Prof transaction profiler.
  • All ad hoc batch collection modes are now grouped into new option 4 Batch on the C\Prof primary option menu. This includes new options for importing auxiliary trace data set into the profiler, and an option to generate IPCS JCL for creating an auxiliary trace data set from a CICS dump with the C\Prof IPCS VERBEXIT.
