ASG Technologies has launched ASG-TMON for IMS 3.5, offering a first day back up for the latest release of the IBM subsystem.
This new version enables organizations to better manage IBM Information Management System (IMS) resource performance and costs, while intelligently planning for the future.
ASG-TMON for IMS provides data center managers, data base administrators and system programmers with new support to effectively cut expensive application downtime and immediately identify, respond to and resolve IMS system, database and application problems.
It continues the global company’s commitment to IBM IMS by adding Day 1 assistance for the just announced release of IMS V15.2.
Other major enhancements include improved profile management via cross-TMONPlex shared repositories.
By transfering the profiles of every member in a TMONPlex into a plex-wide shared repository, profiles just have to be created once and are then available for all TMONPlex members.
It helps save time and effort to manage them while ensuring consistency across the TMONPlex
In addition, it has improved abilities to perform IMS Type-1 and Type-2 commands to facilitate IMS operations.
ASG-TMON for IMS 3.5 enhances overall IMS availability by proactively handling IMS applications and critical resources, providing the insight needed to solve complicated IMS system, transaction and database problems.
Using this results in maximized end-user response times and performance.
“The ASG TMON brand is recognized by IT [information technology] professionals for its highly integrated, easy-to-use solutions,” said Jeff Cherrington, vice president of product management for ASG Systems Management offerings.
He added that it gives a single view of IMS across the enterprise, including vital details required for tuning and debugging IMS systems and applications to identify and resolve performance issues before outages occur.
“We at ASG are pleased to provide day one support for IBM’s latest release,” he stressed.
