DBCTL

If CICS® is connected to DBCTL, OMEGAMON® for CICS (3270) displays the status of the connection and any transactions that have active requests pending with DBCTL.

To access the DBCTL interface display, select the DBCTL option (H) on the Databases path or enter fast path D.H from any panel. When you select the Databases option (D) on the Main Menu, DBCTL is the initial panel on the Databases path if DBCTL (and not DLI and not DB2®) is installed in this CICS region. The DBCTL panel is displayed in the following figure:
