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.

z/VM & Linux Self Study Education

Velocity Software provides a cloud architecture for education. This allows users to:

To access the Velocity Software cloud, click on demo.velocitysoftware.com/zpro/. You will be connected to Velocity Software's zPRO product.
The panel to enter a user ID and password will be presented. Proceed to enter the user ID (demozpro) and password (demodemo) to obtain your own zPRO user ID.

The "DEMOZPRO" user ID is a specific id created for purposes of education and demonstration, allowing (restricting) access to those resources allocated to those activities.
(This same method is what is used to allocate resources to users in customer private cloud implementations.)

There are three documents that will guide you through your learning experience

  1. Connectivity to Velocity Software Cloud
    - How to connect to zPRO on our demo system
    - How to connect to a VM or CMS guest on our demo system
    - How to connect to a Linux guest on our demo system
  2. Using DEMOZPRO Functions
    - How to create Linux, CMS, 2nd level VM, and Oracle/Linux guests
    - How to manage your virtual guests
  3. Introduction to CMS and CP Commands
    - CMS commands such as help, query, xedit,
    - CP commands

  • Using the VM/CMS guest ids created above - IBM has a great education roadmap at: IBM Education

    z/VM & Linux Performance Workshops and Seminars

    Velocity Software offers z/VM and Linux performance workshops on a regular basis. The workshops are 4 days of education covering all performance aspects of z/VM and Linux on System z environments. Further information and schedules can be found on our workshop description page.

    We also offer a single-day Performance Seminar that is a high level preformance, and product usage overview.

    The workshops are appropriate for both experts and novices, who must manage performance, capacity planning and/or operations of Linux under z/VM. Intense use of Velocity Software's zVPS (Velocity Performance Suite) is used - as it is the only solution available that meets many of the operational requirements or running Linux under z/VM.
