CICSplex support in OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS v5.1.0

If you are using CP/SM then OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS v5.1.0 can use the CICSplex definitions from that, but if you don’t use CP/SM you can create rules to cause CICS regions to be allocated to CICSplexes as they are discovered.
As well as being viewable from the normal TEP interface, you can also use the new Enhanced 3270 User Interface to monitor and manage your CICS regions.
The “All Active CICSplexes” sub panel shows you critical monitoring information about each known CICSplex.
Selecting a CICSplex (type an S next to it and press enter) takes you by default to the CICSplex Regions Summary which shows you the CICS regions currently in this CICsplex.
One of the really great features of this management organization in the product is that you can do things on a CICSplex wide basis. For example, you could find all instances of a program within the CICsplex simply by entering the command FIND PROGRAM programname. In this example I have issued FIND PROGRAM CICSSTS1. You can see that the program is defined to two CICS regions within the CICsplex.
From here, I can issue various commands against the entry in each CICS region such as issuing a new copy:
