IBM Z NetView 6.4

IBM Z NetView 6.4 provides automation, and network and systems management to address your requirements for business agility on IBM Z. Key capabilities and advanced functions include networking and automation, enhanced enterprise integration, and client time-to-value. System and network automation is provided by IBM Z NetView and addresses the continued drive for increased IT workload and automation. Because network requirements are ever-increasing, largely because of mobile phones, the need for a robust network management solution becomes increasingly important.

IBM Z NetView 6.4 provides the following capabilities:

  • Display of messages queued on attended and automated operator tasks. This enables the user to see what is queued up on a task behind a process that is not completing, thus allowing the user to make an informed decision on whether to recycle, stop, or reset the task.
  • Support for z/OS symbol names of up to 16 characters with a maximum substitution text of up to 44 characters (including spaces), as defined by z/OS. The following areas have been enhanced for this support:
    • Some configuration samples, such as CxxSTGEN, CNMSTUSR, and CNMPOLCY
    • PIPE SUBSYM stage
  • Network management enhancements:
    • IBM z/OS 2.5 Communications Server enhanced the z/OS Encryption Readiness Technology (zERT) function to provide enforcement of network encryption standards. The zERT policy-based enforcement (zERT enforcement) solution allows policy-based rules that describe different levels of cryptographic protection along with optional actions to take when TCP connections match those rules. zERT enforcement actions enable immediate notification through messages, auditing through SMF records, and automatic connection termination when questionable or unacceptable cryptographic protection is detected. IBM Z NetView catches the syslogd and SMF record notifications and generates a message upon which users can automate an action.
    • The SNMP requirement is removed for:
      • Displaying of interfaces using Discovery Manager
      • Packet trace

      This enhancement provides time to value because SNMP no longer needs to be configured for this function.

    • The NVSNMP command support for SNMPv3 allows additional security parameters to be issued. SNMPv3 requires a username, and authentication and encryption can optionally be specified.
  • Security
    • The use of encrypted data sets, as supported by DFSMS and IBM z/OS Integrated Cryptographic Service Facility (ICSF). IBM Z NetView supports encrypted:
      • Partitioned data sets extended (PDSEs), such as DSIPARM and Canzlog archive data sets
      • VSAM data sets, such as DSILOGP/DSILOGS
    • Ability to prevent the echoing, logging, and tracing of sensitive information on a command. See the CNMSELTE DSIPARM member.
  • NetView Enterprise Management Agent
    • Support is provided for Extended Access Volume usage for history performance information. The IBM Z NetView Enterprise Management Agent includes the use of OMEGAMON persistent data store (PDS V2) large file setup for history information. This improves performance and increases the amount of information that can be stored for history information.

IBM Z NetView 6.4 also provides three plug-ins for Zowe CLI:

  • Base plug-in enables clients to access core NetView information and issue most NetView commands. The specific categories of data are:
    • Canzlog messages
    • Task utilization information
    • List of NetView domains to which commands can be sent
    • Authentication to NetView through the NetView REST Server
      Note: Clients must download this plug-in if you want to use the network and automation plug-ins.
  • Automation plug-in enables you to manage automation table members or statements:
    • Activate an automation table member.
    • Download an automation table member.
    • List active automation tables.
    • Run a simulated test of an automation table statement.
    • Upload an automation table statement.
    • Validate an automation table member.
  • Network plug-in enables you to monitor your network:
    • Display distributed DVIPA (DDVIPA) health information.
    • Display distributed DVIPA (DDVIPA) statistics.

IBM Z Workload Scheduler 10.1

With version 10.1, the managed file transfer capabilities enable your teams to use the z-centric agents and the new File Proxy component, also deployable on container, to move files between z-centric agents with a security-rich protocol.

IBM Z Workload Scheduler 10.1 delivers a new component, the AI Data Advisor, also deployable on container, that uses AI intelligence to analyze historical workload execution data to detect anomalies in the current workload execution and issue alerts. The new component also provides a UI for historical data analysis of jobs and workstations.

The Dynamic Workload Console 10.1 has a renewed Workload Designer to enable a bridge between IT and business applications, providing a unified access point to define every scheduling object and develop workflows in a faster way with contextual help. The Workload Designer includes graphical views and a new empowered search functionality, providing the capability to edit multiple objects at the same time.

By integrating with IBM Z ChatOps, IBM Z Workload Scheduler 10.1 provides the capability to notify chat users using an enterprise chat tool, such as Slack, Mattermost, or Microsoft Teams, about IBM Z Workload Scheduler events. The chat tool can be used to alert team members, to share data and collaboratively resolve issues. Additionally, by using the chatbot included in IBM Z ChatOps 1.1.2, chat users can query and interact with job streams, jobs, and workstations managed by IBM Z Workload Scheduler directly from their enterprise chat tool.

IBM Z Workload Scheduler 10.1 exposes metrics about the status of user jobs by using OpenMetrics standard. The data can be processed by multiple data analytics tools, creating an easy and unified way to control and monitor user workload.

Automation empowered with AI

Historical workload execution data can be leveraged with AI to provide an enhanced operation experience. A new AI Data Advisor component that is deployable on container provides AI capabilities and support anomaly detection for overall workload and individual jobs.

Optimized data transfer and processing

Data transfer operations can be integrated in the Workload Automation workflows. IBM Z Workload Scheduler provides an enhanced version of the File Transfer plug-in (based on secure FTP protocols) to provide managed file transfer capabilities with a detailed view on the console of each file transfer operation and a dedicated dashboard available on the Automation Hub. Version 10.1 provides this management capability for file transfers executed between Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) agents.

One-stop automation modelling

IBM Service Management Unite 1.1.9

Although all the components in the IBM Z Service Management Suite are purpose-built to improve management of your IBM Z monitoring and automation processes, one of the more powerful components in this suite, Service Management Unite, plays a key role in simplifying the operation of complex workloads by providing visibility and control for your IBM Z centric workloads.

Service Management Unite is a customizable management dashboard that brings mainframe management information and tasks from disparate sources into a single environment. It helps operators triage alerts and take corrective action, including issuing system commands and viewing results, without going to a different console.

Service Management Unite dashboards are populated with data and tasks from OMEGAMON, IBM Z System Automation, IBM Z NetView, IBM Z Workload Scheduler, and Zowe Explorer functionalities, if available in the environment. Operators can quickly and confidently analyze, isolate, and diagnose problems because all relevant data, including important logs, is provided in a single place.

Guided problem isolation pages with suggested actions enable operators to restore service quickly. In addition, Service Management Unite provides access to automation functions to start, stop, move, or recycle business applications that are running on z/OS or Linux on IBM Z systems and supported distributed platforms, even from mobile devices. System Automation operators and administrators can use graphical views to look at the topology of their automation domains and to view the dependencies between automated applications that are defined in their automation policy.

On top of the large variety of dashboards provided, users can create their own customized dashboards to adapt them to specific needs or integrate their own data.

The Service Management Unite Docker image and corresponding eezdocker.sh script enable administrators to deploy, configure, and upgrade Service Management Unite in a container environment. This includes running the Service Management Unite Docker container in an IBM z/OS Container Extension, which enables Service Management Unite to run as z/OS address space that can be managed by using standard z/OS procedures. More details about z/OS Container Extensions are provided at the IBM Z Content Solutions website.
