MainView AutoOPERATOR release 7.4 delivers a new level of support for automating z Systems management. The new Automation Health Checker monitors the performance of the automation itself. The AutoOPERATOR health monitoring in MainView Explorer collects and organizes key AO performance metrics on a health monitoring dashboard. Some of the metrics displayed include:
Storage % used (> 16M and < 16M)
Max and Active PQE percentages
Number of HIGH and NORM EXECs queued
Log Dataset Count
Rules Engine, Journal, and CAS Connection status
The release includes support for IBM zAWARE, so the message anomalies noted by zAWARE can be integrated into the systems management automation. There are also a number of usability enhancements to Total Object Manager. This release gains enhanced installation with the BMC Common Install tool version 2.4.
More details are available in the Release Notes and in a Quick Course training video.
