Displaying active systems and sessions (CASACT and CASACTD views)

You can display active systems and sessions using the following views:
  • CASACT view displays the status of all CAS-to-CAS communication links, including VTAM, XCF, and TCP/IP. 
  • CASACTD view displays the communication and activity status of a single CAS.

CASACT view

The CASACT view, in addition to displaying the status of all CAS-to-CAS communications, enables you to manage cross-system VTAM communication links between CASs. By entering commands from this view, you can start, halt, or quiesce cross-system VTAM communication links between CASs.

Note

Commands associated with the CASACT view affect the current CAS only, which is identified by a Yes in the Cur Sys field.

To access the CASACT view

Use one of the following methods to access the CASACT view:

  • In Plex Manager, type CASACT on the COMMAND line and press Enter.

  • From any MainView product that is running in windows mode, use the following CONtext command to access Plex Manager and display the CASACT view:  CON * PLEXMGR;CASACT

The CASACT view is displayed.

Note

(PTF BQY1934 applied) An optional TCP Encryption parameter enables encryption for CAS-to-CAS, TCP/IP communication. In the CASACT view, you can verify that encryption is enabled if YES appears in the IP Enc column (see the preceding figure). For information on how to enable TCP/IP encryption, see Adding CAS definitions and Changing existing CAS definitions.

CASACTD view

The CASACTD, an information only view, provides all of the details for a selected CAS.

To access the CASACTD view

Use one of the following methods from within the CASACT view to access the CASACTD view:

  • Enter S under CMD, next to the CAS you want to see and press Enter.
  • Place the cursor on the CAS you want to see and press Enter

The CASACTD view is displayed.

Note

(PTF BQY1934 applied) An optional TCP Encryption parameter enables encryption for CAS-to-CAS, TCP/IP communication. In the CASACTD view, you can verify that encryption is enabled if YES appears next to the TCP Encryp. field (see the preceding figure). For information on how to enable TCP/IP encryption, see Adding CAS definitions and Changing existing CAS definitions.

For information about any field in the CASACTD view, place the cursor on the field and press the Help key.
