    TeamQuest Probes

    TeamQuest Probes provides data collectors for database activity, application response time, and communications activity for your Unisys MCP systems. TeamQuest Probes is an add-on package that supplements the data provided in TeamQuest SMFII. TeamQuest SMFII is a performance analysis package that collects and displays system resource information for hardware components and software applications. It offers a wide range of statistics, including detailed information on CPU, memory, I/O, disk, network, process, and operating system internals.

    TeamQuest Probes supplies performance data targeted for each Unisys MCP System component from unique sources:

    • DMSII databases
    • COMS transaction programs
    • LINC applications
    • BNAV2 network components

    TeamQuest Probes lets you analyze application activity ranging from the number of COMS program transactions (right) to the amount of logical accesses to a DMSII database structure.

    Comprehensive Data Collection

    TeamQuest Probes collects the following information:


    Data Collected


    Statistics are provided on a per-program basis, including COMS program name, transaction counts, average response time, transaction queue depth, and number of copies in the mix of each COMS program.

    COMS TTrail

    Detailed response time information for COMS transaction systems with data consolidated by database, transaction program, station, usercode, or transaction code are provided.

    COMS Workload

    Statistics are consolidated per user-defined workloads from data collected by the COMS probe, including transaction counts, average response time, and transaction queue depth.


    Statistics are obtained on hosts, station groups, and stations controlled by BNAV2, including processor and memory utilization of CP2000 components, as well as bytes and frames transmitted to and from connections and connection groups.


    Database-wide and structure-specific data, including memory usage, database usage, database buffers, audit activity, and transaction activity, as well as logical accesses and physical I/Os are provided.


    Response time, transaction counts, processor usage, and DMSII activity for LINC applications are summarized at the LINC system, subsystem, and ISPEC levels.
