z/OS Management Facility (z/OSMF)

IBM z/OS Management Facility (z/OSMF) provides system management functions in a task-oriented, web browser-based user interface with integrated user assistance so that you can more easily manage the day-to-day operations and administration of your z/OS systems. By streamlining some traditional tasks and automating others, z/OSMF can help to simplify some areas of z/OS system management.

z/OSMF provides a framework for managing various aspects of a z/OS® system through a web browser interface.

z/OSMF presents a single point of control for:
  • Viewing, defining, and updating policies that affect system behavior
  • Monitoring the performance of the systems in your enterprise
  • Managing your z/OS software
  • Performing problem data management tasks
  • Consolidating your z/OS management tools.

With z/OSMF, you can communicate with the z/OS system through a web browser, so you can access and manage your z/OS system from anywhere. Multiple users can log in to z/OSMF from different computers, different browsers, or multiple instances of the same browser.
