For all of you IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for IMS z/OS v.4.2.0 users, please consider applying Interim Feature 3 (IF3), which is now available. IF3 received great reviews from our early customer feedback. It includes a number of enhancements, especially for the Application Trace Facility (ATF). With IF3, we've improved the usability of ATF making it easier to identify and analyze poor performing transactions that can impact CPU utilization and service level agreements; traces are automatically activated at OMEGAMON startup saving you time; trace definitions are retained in a new trace repository; trace duration has been increased and a "forever" option added; traces can now exclude region types; you can now view trace data by Trace ID; the trace summary displays and overview have been enhanced; you can now use exception level journals for tracing only those applications that have abended or have an elapsed or CPU time greater than a provided threshold ; several performance improvements have been added. Other enhancements include improved granularity for application metrics, and TEPS time attributes are now displayed in microseconds. IF3 enhancements are included in APAR OA36278, which requires the installation of mainframe PTF UA61604 and the installation of Fix Pack 4.2.
