CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Edward Gorga, Principal Support Engineer for June 4, 2013.

New with CA IDMS release 18.5, the Realtime Monitor component of the Performance Monitor can now monitor a remote CV system. When you start PMRM specify the name of the CV you want to monitor, e.g. say you are running on SYSTEM10 and you want to mointor SYSTEM20, then start the monitor with PMRM SYS SYSTEM20

There is also a screen that will let you select the remote system to monitor from a list of actively running CVs (PF19 - Active System Summary).

This feature uses cross memory communication services provided by a new address space, the IDMSINFO service provider which has to be started as a separate started task, one per LPAR.
