In my March 23, 2017 blog, I shared many customer requested features that were delivered in MainView for Java® Environments 2.1. These are exciting times for two reasons – one is the z14 announcement – On July 17, 2017 which calls out specific performance improvements for running Java on the mainframe. These new features include the reduction of program pauses during garbage collection, Guarded storage and faster encryption among the other SDK based improvements.
The second, the JMX Configuration Assistance Utility is a new feature that has been added to MainView for Java Environments. It makes it easier to configure ports and to target specific JVMs for monitoring. A picture is worth a thousand words so we created a short video (also known as a quick course) that provides a step by step tutorial on how to use the JMX Configuration Assistance Utility. You will learn how to find and run this valuable utility and exactly what you need to do to configure JMX ports and MainView for Java Environment targets.
Please take a few minutes to watch the video located here so you can start getting the benefits!
MainView for Java Environments (MVJE) provides a comprehensive solution for managing Java running on the mainframe, including auto discovery of JVMs and extensive data on JVM performance, memory usage and thread activity. MainView for Java Environments does not require other MainView monitors to be present. However, customers with additional MainView solutions will derive unique benefits such as a single view and control of their entire mainframe environment, centralized smart alarms and alerts, that warn you of potential problems so action can be taken before performance is impacted, guided navigation for root cause identification which speeds MTTR and does all of this using resources more efficiently.
