EView/390z Management is an add-on solution for HPE Operations Manager (OM), which extends management of the IT environment to include the mission-critical IBM mainframe (OS/390–z/OS) domains.
EView/390z monitors the status and health of the z/OS system and its standard applications. As a tightly integrated component of HP Operations Manager, EView/390z provides IT Operations staff the ability to take immediate corrective action, based upon the centrally deployed policies for important or critical messages or events.
Advanced capabilities include:
Consolidated Enterprise Operations Management View
EView/390z allows information from the z/OS environment to be displayed on an HPE Operations Center console. The EView/390z interface coordinates the request and response activities to provide a consolidated view of the business environment and the ability to proactively manage the mainframe environment through an intuitive and cost effective user interface. In turn, the complexity involved in managing mainframe z/OS environments is greatly reduced.
The EView/390z agent collection sources span system, application and network messages, performance and resource utilization data via system interface APIs. Local z/OS message filters extract critical system and network information as specified by the administrator. This information is then sent via TCP/IP and only the specified subset of information is sent to the HP Operations Center management console. These messages can include information about the operating system, system applications, such as; DB2, CICS, MQSeries, JES2, and Websphere, and much more.
Messages coming from the EView/390z agent are then routed into existing HPE Operations Manager message groups and included in the message browser. For future reference and planning purposes, the messages are logged into the server message database.
About the EView Intelligent Agent Architecture
All of the EView Technology solutions are designed and architected around the EView Intelligent Agent Technology. The EView Intelligent Agent is a lightweight agent that resides on the mainframe and/or iSeries (AS/400) systems, gathering all data which comes through the console and other integration points.
As a key design point, the EView Intelligent Agent requires minimal resources. There are no requirements for vast amounts of memory, GB of storage, etc… on the mainframe and iSeries (AS/400) systems that other solutions require. This low overhead provides significant cost and efficiency savings. Additionally, the EView Intelligent Agent affords the ability to narrow down the vast amount of messages, events, and log data to your exact requirements. The advanced EView agent sends this data into an EView collector, via a TCP/IP connection. The EView Intelligent Agent and collector use a sophisticated and reliable communication method – which enables the agent to recognize if the collector is not available and buffer messages to ensure critical data is not lost. By taking the workload off the mainframe and iSeries (AS/400) systems for formatting and logging of data – EView solutions frees up valuable resources and ensures no data is ever lost. This information is then seamlessly handled the platform (either HPE, Microsoft, Splunk, and others) to where it can be displayed on via the management console.
