Automated Process Rerun Management

ASG-Zebb is an automated restart system that monitors jobs on one or multiple mainframe computers. It evaluates and logs the execution steps within jobs and provides automated restart and recovery capabilities.

ASG-Zebb is a comprehensive automated process rerun management system that improves productivity in data centers by reducing manual tasks that are required to restart or rerun jobs. All Zebb features and capabilities are accessible from ASG-OpsCentral. ASG-Zebb handles reruns automatically with precision and accuracy, all without changes or modifications to Job Control Language (JCL). This industry-exclusive capability allows accurate reruns of previous jobs regardless of whether or not that job occurred several days, or several cycles, ago. By eliminating manual intervention, ASG-Zebb ensures that jobs will use correct datasets and will be completed virtually error-free.
