Context of a view

A view's context identifies a MainView product that is running on one or more target systems. After you set the context, any view that is opened displays data corresponding to that context.

A context can include a single target system or a single system image (SSI) that includes multiple target systems. General types of SSI contexts are as follows:

  • Defined SSI contexts are either predefined by MainView Infrastructure or defined by your site to represent one or more targets for a given product. All products provide the following defined SSI contexts:

    • ALL provides data from all targets on all systems in a multi-system environment.

    • CURRSYS provides data from all targets running on the local system.

  • Dynamic SSI contexts are created by MainView Infrastructure or specific MainView products dynamically to represent natural groupings of targets (such as a sysplex). All MainView products provide the following dynamic SSI contexts:

    • SYSPLEX represents all targets for a given product in the sysplex.

    • SYSTEM represents all targets for a given product on a specific system. In this case, the system is identified by the CAS name that was assigned in the CASDEF view. Generally, the CAS name is the same as the z/OS system name; however, if multiple CASs are running on a system, the CAS and z/OS names might differ.

    • SYSNAME represents all targets for a given product on a specific system. In this case, the system is identified by the z/OS system name.

In addition to the provided contexts, your system administrator can create additional contexts.
