Monitoring web services

The web services feature collects data for specific web services accessed by the task. MainView for CICS collects data for the following web services and categorizes the services as either an Invoked Web Service (Ink_Srvc) or a Web Session (Web_Sess) service: 

Service typeWeb service
Ink_Srvc

EXEC CICS INVOKE WEBSERVICE

Web_Sess:

WEB CLOSE    

WEB CONVERSE 

WEB OPEN     

WEB RECEIVE  

WEB SEND


MainView for CICS assigns a pseudo-resource name for each web service using the format WBSVRCnn, where nn is a number from 1 through 32.    

  • For the Ink_Srvc resource type and the EXEC CICS parameters. MainView for CICS attempts to determine the URIMAP resource name associated with the service request and constructs a Web Service URI value.  For each WBSVRCnn resource, the total elapsed time and service count is accumulated.    

  • For the Web_Sess resource type, the elapsed time and count include the CLOSE, CONVERSE, OPEN, RECEIVE, and SEND web services.  The collected data is maintained in the same resource entries in CMRDETL that are used for other task resource types and id limited by the MAXFILE parameter.

The less-than sign (<) identifies the web services entries.
