|If available, the CA-IDMS Performance
Monitor will be used to gather information at peak
periods and on any transactions, which are suspect.
Numerous statistics will be collected by application
relative to I/O, CPU utilization, wait times, and
PRINT SPACE and IDMSDBAN utilities will also
be used to collect and report database statistics
on record activity, record fragmentation and
overflow among others. The result of this phase
will be a set of reports, which will be used
as input to the next phase, analysis.
Analysis and Reporting -- during this phase
the Tiburon senior staff consultant works closely
with skilled Tiburon staff to further analyze
all information and insure completeness prior
to preparing a written report of their findings
and technical recommendations.
In addition, he or she will interview IS management
and staff to determine expectations and to evaluate
CA-IDMS management and technical skills. From
this exercise recommendations may be made for
staffing or providing the appropriate education
to enable local staff to effectively monitor
and sustain the newly optimized environment.
The report to be delivered will contain four
major sections as follows:
1. CA-IDMS-DC/UCF Recommendations
2. Database Design Recommendations
3. Application Design or Interaction Recommendations
4. Organizational or Education Recommendations
This report is delivered to the sites management
Implementation -- The onsite phase performed
by the Tiburon specialist will detail each technical
recommendation to be included in the follow-up
report. If needed a plan will be devised to implement
them in a manner that will facilitate measuring
the degree of improvement for each recommendation.
It is likely that several changes can be implemented
on the first day. These may require that the
system be cycled to incorporate them. After the
onsite phase is completed, future additional
support is available via phone calls, the Tiburon
User Website or with a Tiburon support agreement.
