ASG-PERFMAN for z/OS

 

For a Complete View Into the Performance of Your Mainframes, Their Peripherals, and the Level of Resources Being Used

ASG-PERFMAN for z/OS allows you to take full advantage of and optimize one of the most sophisticated operating environments available today – z/OS.

ASG-PERFMAN for z/OS allows you to understand your mainframe from the inside out. You can discover LPARS, Service Classes, Report Classes, I/O Subsystems and more; view graphical representations of all discovered metrics; perform simulation modeling of the LPAR environment to determine optimal LPAR configuration; and look back upon historical trend analysis of resource usage over all key resources, including Goal Mode workloads and DASD I/O controllers and devices.

Differentiators

  • Discover LPARS, Service Classes, I/O subsystems

  • View discovered metrics graphically

  • Perform simulation modeling of the LPAR environment to determine optimal LPAR configuration

  • Look back upon historical trend analysis of resource usage over all key resources including: goal mode workloads and DASD I/O controllers and devices

  • Monitor workloads and historical trends for z/OS LPARS, and CPU output forecasts to effectively manage capacity and determine how long you will be able to stay on the hardware before thresholds are violated

  • Anticipate service levels breaches caused by new applications, worst-case spikes, and unique IT growth initiatives

  • Manage utilization and "what if" scenario modeling of zIIP and zAAP specialty engines.

Benefits

  • Make better decisions based on in-depth server workload, DASD space, I/O subsystem, and goal mode analysis

  • Utilize in-depth trending and forecasting for DB2, CICS TS, z/OS Modeling, and Business Unit Analysis to eliminate risk and plan for future utilization needs

  • Quickly measure and assess the impact of Capacity-On-Demand and its resulting effect on workloads

  • Perform enterprise-wide management regardless of platform or geographic location

  • Realize fast ROI via hardware, software licensing, and operational cost savings

  • Utilize fully automated analysis, reporting, and integrated web publishing for total control and visibility

  • Manage sub capacity licensing with predictive forecasting to prevent costly overruns.

  • Centralize control of your entire IT infrastructure to dramatically reduce administrative overhead and eliminate human error
