I am a bit late today. I noticed, that I talked already about new
functions in VSE/POWER. Therefore I removed that entry.
Now to the system management enhancements:
- SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) was introduced with z/VSE 4.3 for e.g. performance monitors
to retrieve z/VSE system data like CPU utilization from a remote system. With z/VSE 5.1 and SNMP Symbolic Parameters
you can now use symbolic parameters when running the SNMP Trap Client in batch. For details, see "Using the SNMP Trap Client in Batch Jobs" in the
z/VSE e-business Connectors User's Guide.
Another SNMP enhancement is the dynamic linking of th SNMP Trap client API.
The VSE Monitoring Agent has been enhanced to allow your COBOL, PL/I, and C/VSE programs, and CICS transactions
to dynamically link the SNMP Trap Client API to enable them to send SNMP "traps."
For details, see "Collecting Data Using the VSE Monitoring Agent" in the z/VSE e-business Connectors User's Guide.
- We also introduced the new GDPS connector. The support for GDPS (Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex) allows
a GDPS Client to collect availability data from your z/VSE systems and send it to a central GDPS K-System running under z/OS.
For details, see "Using GDPS Support for High Availability" in the z/VSE e-business Connectors User's Guide.
Our books are on z/VSE documentation
Have a good weekend.
