Manage and monitor your storage systems
IBM® Tivoli® OMEGAMON® XE for Storage on z/OS® enables you to monitor and manage mainframe-attached storage
It combines comprehensive storage monitoring for z/OS I/O subsystem performance and storage availability.
|Situation editor lets you move beyond simple thresholds and helps easily define complex thresholds, situations and alerts||See detailed information about what triggered the alert; Expert Advice suggests possible solutions based on industry best practices||Stay on top of both system managed storage (SMS) and non-SMS devices in real-time from a single workspace|
|Capacity alerts and intuitive charts||At-a-glance views reveal space available for allocation within volumes and storage groups||Actively manage capacity issues and avoid outages|
|Volume statistics and performance metrics such as DASD fast-write ratios, cache hit rates, volume contention, resource locks, data collisions, and channel utilization||Provides insight into response times and performance data for volumes and storage groups as well as measuring down to the milliseconds spent storing or retrieving a data set||Speed device response time and utilization|
|Data set level performance and space metrics||See at the data set level how they are performing and if there are any problems||Knowing the device level may not always be enough, trouble shoot at the data set level where the problem may be effecting a specific application|
|Application monitoring – identify and monitor the data sets that an application is currently using||Quickly identify the volume and datasets which and address space is currently using, finding out their performance and availability metrics||Isolates where to look for problems, quickly reacting to changes in the application and environment|
|Channel, Tape, DFHSM and DFSMS monitoring capability||Solution provides information for the whole I/O sub-system from the channel levels down to the individual data sets, this includes monitoring of tape/Cart drive information. HSM and SMS information is also available||The product provides a wide variety of storage management capability. This is the corner stone solution for the storage management tool box|
|Intuitive Web browser interface||Enables you to monitor the interaction of your storage devices and other systems within a single interface from any location||Quickly detect and pinpoint the source of storage problems and trace transactions from one system to another|
|Take Action helps resolve common problems||Use existing scripts or ones easily created from templates||Implement resolutions automatically or select and apply manually if preferred|
|Built-in TN3270/5250 component||Go directly to TN3270 applications||Built-in components for enhanced data access and integration. No need for extra emulation packages.|
IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for Storage:
Introducing a significant redesign to OMEGAMON V5.1 family, based on high priority customer requirements. OMEGAMON is providing new capabilities designed for:
• Improving problem resolution efficiency but requiring fewer steps to find a root cause performance impact in real time, and therefore providing higher availability.
• Improving the visibility, control and automation with a new more comprehensive 3270-based user interface capable of viewing the entire enterprise-wide environment from a single 3270 screen.
• Reducing the time required by IT personnel by leveraging Tivoli Monitoring functions including self describing agents and a new Parmgen methodology for installation, configuration and maintenance.
