Title: CICS Tuning 101
Presenter: Eugene S Hudders, president of C\TREK Corporation
Abstract: This session will provide information on what CICS areas should be reviewed and what resources can be optimized for better performance. Performance tuning of CICS systems has become a secondary objective in some installations with tuning being done when a problem arises. This presentation provides basic ideas that will provide a guide for tuning your system using the tools that you have available for tuning. It will concentrate on tuning the major resources such as CPU, I/O and Storage (virtual and real). The areas reviewed in this presentation should be analyzed by the persons responsible for CICS performance on a proactive basis.
