ES/1 NEO offers automated expert systems analysis of all key zOS performance metrics. It highlights areas of performance concern and offers expert advice on actions that will help tune the system to overcome issues and ensure better on-going performance from the mainframe.
ES/1 NEO Advisor provides daily system analysis of the zOS environment. Metrics are collated within the one system, including areas typically requiring collection and analysis by multiple third party products. The one solution provides insight into key issues for zOS system data, CICS, IMS, DB2, zVM, WAS and Job Detail.
Longer term analysis is available from the Magic module, which provides trend and forecast views across all metrics. Audit requirements and security concerns are met through the optional Audit function.
ES/1 NEO is available as a software solution which can be implemented in minutes and provides regular expert analysis of zOS systems whenever required. Supplied on a purchase or rental basis by Metron individual modules can be added or removed as required.
For those organizations who prefer to use Metron to run ES/1 NEO for them it is available as a service, leaving the organizations own staff free to administer their zOS environment.
Andrew Smith CSMO Metron commented “We are very excited about ES1 NEO, because it integrates what has previously been done by several products. This means you can save money by consolidating to one tool where previously you had many, or use ES/1 to fill the gaps in your current system management tool portfolio. As an expert system, it offers expertise 24x7 that is not as readily available in many organizations as it once was. Its broad coverage of all key zOS areas and automated correlation across them mean no problems slip through the cracks.”
ES1 NEO’s modular architecture means you only pay for what you need. It offers a simple, reliable mainframe data capture routine utilizing standard zOS data sources. The simple architecture makes implementation quick and easy and time to receive output short.
