                        Donald R. Deese


CICS/ESA Version 4.1 and CICS/Transaction Server for OS/390 operating
under MVS (Goal Mode) can provide significant performance improvements
over MVS (Compatibility Mode).  In Goal Mode, these systems provide a
wealth of performance information that can be analyzed to remove
constraints to improved CICS performance.  This paper describes the
information available in Goal Mode and provides suggestions about how
to improve CICS performance based on the information provided.
