ASG-SmartScope

 

A robust fault diagnosis and dump management solution.

ASG-SmartScope supports application availability in z/OS® environments by automating the complex, error-prone processes of managing dumps and analyzing, diagnosing, and resolving batch and online application and system failures, or abends.

ASG-SmartScope uses dumps as input and provides an online, interactive viewing facility that is easy to understand and illustrates the cause of failure. In most cases ASG-SmartScope can display the actual failing statement within the application’s source code. With this information, and ASG-SmartScope’s notification capabilities, the user is able to quickly identify and resolve the cause of a program error.
