For Controlling CA-IDMS Journal Activities

ASG-Journal Manager is a comprehensive journal management tool that helps your organization control all IDMS journal archive-based activities within an z/OS® environment. 

A comprehensive menu-driven journal management tool, ASG-Journal Manager keeps track of, and controls, journal archive files used in CA-IDMS recovery. In addition to streamlining daily, weekly, or monthly journal consolidation, it can be used with ASG-Replication Agent for journal-based replication, and with ASG-Tracer for reporting and auditing. Recovery procedures have accurate and precise input because information is captured and journal files are saved to the Journal Manager VSAM file.
