Will CA’s Sunsetting of APAS/Insight and PLEU Leave You in the Dark?


by Wayne Lashley, Chief Business Development Officer for Treehouse Software and Joseph Brady, Marketing and Documentation Manager for Treehouse Software

If your company uses CA APAS/Insight and/or CA PLEU, you have been notified that these products have reached “End of Service”. This means that support for the products will no longer be provided by CA.

Many of you will be wondering where to turn now for proven and reliable alternatives. The answer, as is usually the case when it comes to ADABAS/NATURAL-oriented solutions, is Treehouse Software.

As the vendor of the ADABAS performance monitor TRIM since 1983, and of leading PLOG audit/extract products (AUDITRE and NatCDCSP, with its companion product NatQuery), Treehouse Software understands how important it is to provide customers with new releases and expert technical support as ADABAS and NATURAL continue to advance and evolve.

We are pleased to extend a special offer to CA APAS/Insight and CA PLEU customers to adopt comparable Treehouse Software solutions, and enjoy the assurance of our commitment to supporting and updating TRIM, AUDITRE, NatCDCSP, NatQuery, and our other solutions that complement ADABAS and NATURAL.

Treehouse Software representatives are ready to help you implement our solutions to address your key requirements, and at specially-discounted pricing.

Not currently using CA APAS/Insight or CA PLEU? You’re in luck, because we’ll extend our same special pricing offers to you as well!


Treehouse Products at a Glance


ADABAS/NATURAL customers need a reliable, effective, and efficient way to analyze and optimize performance. TRIM is a robust performance monitor for ADABAS and NATURAL. The TRIM Real-Time Monitor provides a wealth of key performance statistics, including:

  • ADABAS activity in various categories across time intervals
  • Session statistics
  • ADABAS queues and tables
  • And much more…

TRIM batch reporting functions can leverage ADABAS PLOG and CLOG data to identify usage hotspots and anomalies, track transactions and gauge utilization trends.


AUDITRE is Treehouse Software’s generalized auditing facility for ADABAS, applicable to a wide variety of use cases. Summary reports show the number of adds, deletes, and updates made to specified files and fields, while detail reports can track specific user activity and updating of individual fields and files. Data may be extracted to output datasets for use with reporting, analysis, and other software. As a batch facility processing the ADABAS PLOG, AUDITRE does not require ADABAS to be active in order for reports and extracts to be run.


NatCDCSP is the NATURAL Change Data Capture answer for ADABAS.  The information contained in the ADABAS PLOG is an ideal Change Data Capture (CDC) source. NatCDCSP leverages the PLOG utilities that Software AG provides with ADABAS, and generates NATURAL programs to handle the output of these utilities for CDC purposes. This approach results in a low-cost, high-performance CDC solution that can be readily applied to ADABAS auditing requirements.


NatQuery is the NATURAL Data Extraction answer for ADABAS. A full GUI tool that has NATURAL data extraction intelligence built in, NatQuery has the automatic ability to quickly “learn” the nuances of your ADABAS source files. As a NATURAL program generator, NatQuery leverages the inherent power of what NATURAL was designed to do, while at the same time removing the need for any in-depth training and/or knowledge of NATURAL, ADABAS or the other intricacies of the environment in which NATURAL and ADABAS reside—be it mainframe or LUW (Linux/Unix/Windows).
