Velocity Software, Inc. is recognized as a leader in the performance measurement of z/VM and Linux on z. The Velocity Performance Suite consist of a set of tools that enable installations running z/VM to manage Linux and z/VM performance. In addition, many components of server farms can be measured and analyzed. Performance data can be viewed real-time through the use of either 3270 or a browser. The CLOUD Implementation (zPRO) component is designed for full cloud PaaS implementation as well as to extend the capabilities of the z/VM sysprog (system programmer) to the browser world. This feature moves system management to the point-and-click crowd. Archived data and reports can be kept available of long term review and reporting usine zMAP. The zVPS, formally ESALPS, components consist of: zMON (formally ESAMON - real-time display of performance data), zTCP (formally ESATCP - SNMP data collection), zMAP (formally ESAMAP - historical reporting and archiving), zVWS (formally ESAWEB - z/VM based web server), zTUNE (a subscription service), zVIEW (formally SHOWCASE - web based viewing of performance data), zPRO (new to the quality line of Velocity Software Products). Velocity continues to work with other software vendors to ensure smooth interface with or from other products such as VM:Webgateway, CA-Webgateway, EnterpriseWeb, MXG, MICS. Velocity software remains the leader and inovator in the z/VM performance, Linux performance, Managing cloud computing arenas.

Moving MICS data to z/OS.

To move the data collected for MICS from the ESALPS collection to z/OS requires the following. This procedure will need to be updated to meet installation requirements.

The most optimal method is to have the files created each hour, this is by default. Then at midnight, have a process group the files into one single file, and then FTP that file to z/OS for MICS processing. That is the intention of this procedure.

The MAPGOOD EXEC needs to be copied to the "A" disk. There is a sample on the product disk (E-disk by default). This EXEC needs to have the following line added:


Here is an example of the contents of a proposed ESAMICS EXEC

/*                                                          */
/* S A M P L E                                              */
/*                                                          */
/* exec to copy yesterday's mics files to esamap work disk  */
/* Retrieve all ESAEXTR file except today's                 */
  ft = DATE('S')
    '| nfind ESAEXTR  FILE',
    '| nlocate /'||today||'/',
    '| sort w2'         ,
    '| stem files.'     ,
    '| getfiles'        ,
    '| > ESAEXTR' ft 'K'

  zosdirectory = 'abc.def'           /* Target directory    */
/* Send file to ZOS via FTP                                 */
