Non Intrusive Mainframe Software (NIMS)
The non-intrusive concept enables customers to capture SMF logs 24×7 and to save years of historical data online, available for trend analysis and forecasting.
Mainframe Capacity Planning
Dinos CPU Explorer gathers all information related to program, jobs and step executions in a database and provides a broad range of views using the SMF 30 (accounting) records as well as RMF 70.1 (CPU activity).
- Execution of Jobs and Programs (including time & duration)
- Executed Services
- Termination (JCLerror, Normal, Abends)
- RACF User(groups)
- Consumed Service Units
- Details & Totals of I/O
CICS Performance Measurement and Transaction History
The CICS Explorer provides up-to-date and historical analysis of all CICS transactions. All Information is structured in a relational database, which holds an extensive number of counters like
- Elapsed Time
- CPU Time
- Chars sent / received
- Java Executions
Contents are retrieved from SMF 110 records.
Storage Administration and Performance
This Dino Component compiles disk storage subsystems information (using DCollect commands). Caters for browse and search in current as well as historical views with capacity & topology.
- Configuration Explorer
- DASD Cache Activity
- Cache Operations
- Storage Group Performance
- IOPS vs. Response Time
Dataset Administration and History
Dino Dataset Explorer provides information on VSAM and non-VSAM files, showing the use of resources, Jobs related to each dataset and much more. Counters include EXCP’s, Opens, Inserts, Delets, Updates, CI-Splits, CA-Splits, etc.
- Dataset usage history
- Storage class utilization
- Jobs accessing datasets
- Most frequently accessed datasets
- I/O activity
- VSAM utilization history
- Jobs accessing certain datasets
- Datasets assigned to a job
- Most frequently used VSAM files
- Highly split datasets
Address EXCP sessions from SMF 30 records
