ICPU–Inspect-CPU for CICS

ICPU gives any application programmer the ability to easily identify code causing costly CICS application performance problems. Systems programmer tools have high resource usage and are used sparingly. ICPU has low overhead in production or test environments and is used by the people who know applications best—application programmers. Easily find programs and lines of code causing issues and spikes in CPU usage. Monitors and CICS performance analyzers lack the usability and capability of ICPU. Low overhead allows ICPU to run anytime on production or test systems. It provides staff invaluable insight into CPU usage for improving performance of applications and lowering MLC license charges.
