Managing cross-system communication

One of the principal benefits of MainView Infrastructure is the ability to monitor the performance of multiple MainView products from a single terminal session. You can see the current or historical performance of systems running simultaneously on all system images.


You can skip this section if:

  • All CASs are running in the same sysplex and the default XCF group name of BBGROUP is acceptable; CASs communicate through the XCF link as long as they all have the same XCF group name, as described in the Customizing after installation.

  • The current CAS is not communicating with another CAS on a different sysplex through a VTAM, TCP/IP, or XCF link.

The following figure illustrates:

  • How MainView products communicate with each other between system images.

  • VTAM links that enable MainView products in a BBI-SS PAS on one system image to communicate with products on another system image.
