Discover the capabilities

EView 400i MP for Microsoft SCOM

Understand and manage your IBMi environment like an ecosystem that is constantly changing in terms of physical design, transactions, and memory. Monitoring helps you maintain the balance at any given time to ensure the best possible performance.

Solution

This solution extends the Cross-Platform Capabilities of Microsoft System Center to include the IBM iSeries (AS/400) environments. It integrates the IBM iSeries (AS/400) environment seamlessly, as part of a unified Microsoft System Center Operations Manager platform.

EView/400i Management v7.0 for Microsoft System Center is the most advanced and comprehensive Management Pack for managing the IBM iSeries (AS/400) environments. The MP works seamlessly with System Center to integrate event and system performance and monitoring the status and health of the OS400 system and its standard applications.

EView 400i MP Performance Dashboards

After importing the EView/400i Management pack, you can easily create an iSeries Custom Dashboard for your environment. In this dashboard, we display only 9 out of 46 performance parameters which EView/400i collected.

After a job is configured to alert when its status changes from active to message wait. You can easily create a recovery task to automatically run when a job is in message wait state. For example, the recovery task outputs several job attributes logs, such as:

  • Job log
  • Program stack
  • Open files
  • Files Overridden
  • Library List
  • Spool file
  • Object locks

Features

The EView 400i MP lets you perform a multitude of functions that are critical in your role as system, application or database administrator.

ISeries (AS/400) Performance Monitoring
Monitor CPU usage, disk usage, ASP, MQ Series, response time, and other performance metrics..

Proactive problem detection and resolution
Two-way communication with iSeries (AS/400) systems to resolve problems quickly and automatically.

Automation Libraries
Out-of-the-box filters provide a “rich starter set” for rapid implementation, as well as automatic closing of any iSeries inquiry message after iSeries operator has replied.

Series (AS/400) Audit Journal monitoring
Real-time monitoring and alerting when critical events occur, allowing security administrators to immediately investigate potential security related issues.

Interface with various Operational functions
System administrators have the ability to interface with the iSeries (AS/400) operational information to manage the system, application jobs, output queues, and spool file.

Capabilities

As a system, application, and database administrator that works in an IBM Mainframe environment, we understand that you face three significant challenges in your role which include:

  • Managing a more and more complex AS/400 environment;
  • Diagnosing and addressing problems in real-time in your IBM iSeries ecosystem;
  • Working efficiently with limited resources.

Monitoring your IBM iSeries environment is a multi-faceted exercise and reaching optimal performance is not an easy goal. You need to know how factors such as memory, physical design and maintenance can affect performance. To tune and maintain a subsystem or instance, you should continuously monitor the entire AS/400 environment.

The EView/400i MP v7.0 adds significant enhancements including new job monitors, extended automation, and nearly plug-and-play installation and setup.

This monitoring solution increases the productivity of both the Microsoft SCOM administrator and operator, providing them the ability to quickly identify problems.

EView/400i agents capture all available iSeries (AS/400) information to be included managed and monitored by System Center. This can also be used in easy to use customizable System Center (2012) Dashboards. The net result is the iSeries (AS/400) environment is managed, monitored and reported just like other server environments giving IT Operations a consistent and common tool for the entire enterprise.

Benefits

The EView agent code is designed to collect messages and data from specific areas of the iSeries (AS/400) systems, and then send those messages on to the proxy server. Performance data is collected and stored on the data warehouse. This design improves the efficiency of the information stream. The EView/400i for SCOM allows you to:

Increase productivity
The EView Management has been designed to take automatic action, based on deployed message conditions, to address and respond to messages. This ensures timely problem resolution,

Improve efficiency
The EView agent code is designed to collect messages and data from specific areas of the iSeries (AS/400) systems, and then send those messages on to the proxy server. Performance data is collected and stored on the data warehouse. This design improves the efficiency of the information stream.

Manage data more effectively
The EView agent on the iSeries (AS/400) collects management data and coordinates the request and response activities to the EView agent on the System Center management server via TCP/IP.
