Number of Users logged in via CICS

Number of Users logged in via CICS

Number of Users logged in via CICS

Can someone please tell me how to find the number of users logged in to Ellipse via CICS on a UNIX platform.

RE: Number of Users logged in via CICS

There was a program developed by Mincom called MSOUSR - it has a CICS transation code of MUSR.

I think it comes standard with the later versions of ECP.  Trry typing 'MUSR' in one of your CICS regions and see what happens (it worked for me in my test instance, but failed in production. *shrug*)


RE: Number of Users logged in via CICS

We have the same problem with MUSR. We share a box with other sites and for some it works and others it doesn't and I've heard lately that the figure coming out, if it works, are suspect.


RE: Number of Users logged in via CICS

Can you use the Unix ps -ef command and grep it out?


RE: Number of Users logged in via CICS

In MUSR help screen, PF5 can be used for dump the output details to CSMT.out file. But I can't find this file. Do anyone know about the file's location ?

RE: Number of Users logged in via CICS

Yes I've found CSMT.out file in /var/cics_regions/<region_name>/data but its content is not like my expectation. I thought I can find detail information for all Ellipse connection.
I'm curious if there is Ellipse utility for capturing current Ellipse connection e.g. Ellipse userid, client hostname, program name, etc. It'll be used for creating statistics report.


RE: Number of Users logged in via CICS


I don't think the information you are seeking is available. It is in the old Mincom TP.  You can get info via PF4 or session details like below. I'm new to CICS and don't think it's as good as Tuxedo or the Mincom TP.


Log of Client Usage
Apart from the realtime display that is available with the MUSR transaction, it is also possible to log the number of active client connections to a file, and have this log updated at a customized interval.
This log is controlled by setting the environment variable
Set this variable to the interval (in minutes) at which you wish to log the number of connections and terminals connected to the CICS region. The allowable values are from 1 to 60. If this variable is set, the log will write to the file <Ellipse_instance>/log/MWHO.out. The log is of the following format (in this case the ECP_MWHO_INTERVAL was set to 2) –
18/11/2003 14:55:53 ** MIMSWHO START **
18/11/2003 14:55:53 STATS::: CONNECTIONS 1
18/11/2003 14:55:53 STATS::: TERMINALS 0
18/11/2003 14:55:55 STATS::: TSQUEUES 0
18/11/2003 14:55:55 ** MIMSWHO FINISH **
18/11/2003 14:59:00 ** MIMSWHO START **
18/11/2003 14:59:00 STATS::: CONNECTIONS 2
18/11/2003 14:59:00 STATS::: TERMINALS 0
18/11/2003 14:59:03 STATS::: TSQUEUES 4
18/11/2003 14:59:03 ** MIMSWHO FINISH **

RE: Number of Users logged in via CICS

We're being upgraded our MIMS OE 4.1 to Ellipse So all tools and its environment are new for me..
Yes, I try to find similar tool like tp_stat in mincom tp.
I've tried the PF4 key but can't dump the information, also read MWHO.out but the content is not complete enough.

Thanks anyway for your info.
