In an earlier post I talked about the new/improved application trace facility in OMEGAMON XE for IMS V4.20. Along with the new/improved application trace, V4.20 also comes with a Near Term History (NTH) function to show the most recent IMS transactions, and drill down performance detail for those transactions. The transaction detail is kept in the new OMEGAMON IMS journal logging facility, and provides an easy way to go back in time and see what transactions ran, how many times a given transaction ran, and the ability to drill down on a specific transaction scheduling to get performance and execution detail on that given transaction. NTH includes a filter panel option, so that you may filter out transactions, and focus on problem applications, and outliers. The included screen shot shows NTH and how you can F11 drill down for more detail.
