Key features of IBM Z Batch Resiliency

Near real-time insights into data usage and recoverability

IBM® Z Batch Resiliency's SMF collection and analysis is built for speed and efficiency. Collection is done continuously throughout the day and your data is passed to the analysis subtasks for up-to-the-minute status of batch data usage and recoverability. IBM Z Batch Resiliency interfaces with multiple system components to give you an accurate status of batch processing as well as a wealth of historical information.

Fast and automated recoverability

IBM Z Batch Resiliency gives you greater ease of recovery, accomplished without extensive application expertise, to greatly reduce the time to business resumption. If a data set needs to be recovered the IBM Z Batch Resiliency ISPF panel interface enables a swift identification of the appropriate backup needed, and automatically generates restore JCL to match the backup method. Additionally, the IBM Z Batch Resiliency drivers allow you to create JCL templates for any methodology.

Deeper insights into your data

With IBM Z Batch Resiliency you can gain granular, real-time insight into batch jobs that are executing on the system and any open data sets that may be at risk. You can view the jobs that were running at a given point in time in the past, open data sets, and open a cascade report of downstream data dependencies. You can restore datasets or applications by using the IBM Z Batch Resiliency intuitive ISPF panel interface.

Comprehensive reporting portfolio

Using the wealth of information captured in the IBM Z Batch Resiliency databases, you can easily generate reports detailing the usage and relationships of batch application data by using the ISPF panel interface or run as a scheduled batch report. These key reports identify resiliency and audit gaps to address compliance mandates by automatically providing audit reporting for recovery and data sharing regulations.

Continuously capture data set activity

The IBM Z Batch Resiliency TimeLiner feature runs continuously to capture data set Open and Close activity through SVCs and user exits providing up-to-the-minute information about jobs executing on your system, and the state of data sets used by the jobs. The TimeLiner tracks and checkpoints information in its database and journal to provide operational and recovery personnel with valuable information to easily identify potential compromised data.
