Velocity Software, Inc. is recognized as
a leader in the performance measurement of z/VM and Linux on z.
The Velocity Performance Suite consist of a set of tools that
enable installations running z/VM to manage Linux and z/VM
In addition, many components of server farms can be
measured and analyzed. Performance data can be viewed real-time
through the use of either 3270
or a browser.
The CLOUD Implementation (zPRO) component is designed
for full cloud PaaS implementation as well as
to extend the capabilities of the z/VM sysprog (system programmer)
to the browser world. This feature moves system management to
the point-and-click crowd. Archived data and reports can be
kept available of long term review and reporting usine zMAP.
The zVPS, formally ESALPS, components consist of:
zMON (formally ESAMON - real-time display of performance data),
zTCP (formally ESATCP - SNMP data collection),
zMAP (formally ESAMAP - historical reporting and archiving),
zVWS (formally ESAWEB - z/VM based web server),
zTUNE (a subscription service),
zVIEW (formally SHOWCASE - web based viewing of performance data),
zPRO (new to the quality line of Velocity Software Products).
Velocity continues to work with other software vendors to ensure
smooth interface with or from other products such as
VM:Webgateway, CA-Webgateway, EnterpriseWeb, MXG, MICS.
Velocity software remains the leader and inovator in the
z/VM performance, Linux performance, Managing cloud computing
Velocity Software has added z/OS to it's performance
management suite. As the industry leader in z/VM
performance management for over 30 years, and as the
industry leader in Linux on IBM Z performance management for
almost 20 years, many zVPS installations have requested support
of z/OS metrics in our modern and flexible graphical interface.
zOSMON has many benefits that should appeal to everyone from
the performance specialist to the mainframe management executives.
zOSMON completely offloads all processing from the expensive
z/OS MIPS, leaving a footprint of almost zero resource consumption.
The incremental cost of processing each LPAR is expected to
be much less than 1% of a processor. zVPS is written in low
level languages to run extremely efficiently on the IBM Z platform.
zOSMON is designed to support an unlimited number of LPARs and
CECs within one zVPS subsystem. One enterprise view for operations,
capacity planning, performance management and for chargeback.
For those installations running Linux on IFLs, zWRITE supports
the Linux workload running on an IFL, reducing the cost even
zOSMON adds the ability to do real time performance monitoring
with a one minute interval - with negligible performance impact or
zOSMON is supported by zVIEW, zOPERATOR, zALERT, providing access
to all the current web interface, graphics, operational
analysis and reporting in use today for z/VM, Linux, z/VSE and
zOSMON provides a full set of reports and screens
exposing the information in
the SMF records. No longer do your systems people have to learn how to
process the SMF records in order to get the information needed -
the information is provided directly through zVPS. zOSMON will be
enhanced on a very aggressive schedule to meet customer requirements.
End users have immediate access to their view. Views can be personalized
or shared. And it is very very fast. To see your VERY LIVE
here is a quick look at our z/OS monitoring screens:
This view shows all the SMF 70 and SMF 30 reporting capability on one
pane of glass!
zOSMON installs in a few hours. As zOSMON is so efficient, there is
no need to tailor anything - just take it all. Converting to LOGSTREAM
seems to be the challenge, but after that, zOSMON is installed in
zOSMON currently fully exploits the SMF records 30 and 70. With
the ability to collect data from all the z/OS LPARs in an enterprise,
there is one centralized database for the
enterprise. With such a low cost of operation, data can be processed
in multiple locations for full redundancy.
zOSMON is currently available for beta testing.
