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 performance. 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 arenas.

zVIEW - Browser based Performance Data viewing

As z/VM has grown into the platform of choice for hosting of Linux on z, installations are relying on the in-house talent pool to manage the Linux/mainframe environment. This talent is often migrated from z/OS or more likely some other Linux platform, and are often times not up to speed on the subtleties of z/VM CP and CMS. Many of these individuals are "green screen" (3270) challenged, and are more accustomed to a "point and click" approach to retrieve information of any type. Even seasoned "VMers" are taking advantage of the browser technology available on workstations, laptops, tablets, and PDAs to keep abreast of installation issues in real time. To that end, zVIEW has been introduced to address the needs of those who support the performance needs of the enterprise.

zVIEW is not a replacement for the 3270 version of zVPS data presentation, but an extension to it. Users can view the same data that can be viewed using the 3270 interface using a "point and click" method, making data navigation much easier. Additionally, the zVIEW feature of zVPS has implemented a graphing sub-feature which allows end-user to view data, past and present, in a graphical, more pictorial, representation. This feature makes information much more readily recognizable and presentable to non-technical staff that may have a need for such information.

See for yourself, some of the capabilities of zVIEW. The following link will take you to a live demonstration area of zVIEW, where you can wander through the various features of zVIEW at your leisure.
