INFO/CPU is a CPU resource reporting system that easily creates graphical charts along with traditional mainframe SYSOUT reports showing overall CPU and individual WLM workload and/or service class utilization. Trending of your CPU and WLM resource utilization is fully supported. The product executes very simply, via batch JCL, with the user selecting options via a small set of control card specifications.

Utilizing the SEStudio and InfoVision tools in combination with the mainframe programs, InfoCPU easily provides a set of canned graphs and reports that are designed to satisfy all your CPU reporting and trending needs.
