IMS Database Solution Pack integrates with IBM Tools Base Autonomics Director for z/OS to help you maintain the health and performance of IMS. Autonomics Director automates recurring database monitoring and maintenance tasks, including the collection and evaluation of health statistics, and reorganizations.
Autonomics Director works with IMS Database Solution Pack to increase the efficiency of your IMS environment:
Autonomics Director supports multiple levels of automation. You can choose to automate some or all of your monitoring and maintenance tasks according to the needs of your organization. In addition, you can use Autonomics Director scheduler or your external job scheduler to arrange immediate or delayed data collection, database evaluations, and reorganizations.
In Autonomics Director, resources are organized into user-defined groups so that multiple databases in a group can be reorganized in parallel. Issuing reorganizations at the group level minimizes the duration of the end-to-end reorganization process. Managing databases in groups also ensures that the relationships between databases with external logical relationships are resolved after reorganizations complete.
