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
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
ESAWRITE is the data collection component of ESAMON. By
dynamically reducing raw monitor data into history files,
ESAWRITE eliminates the need to write raw monitor data to disk
ESAWRITE was made a stand-alone product in
response to customer requests and is a complementary product to
ESAMAP. ESAWRITE controls the collection, manipulation, and
reduction of raw monitor data. ESAMAP reports may be run at any
time using the history files. By continuously reducing raw
monitor data to history files, ESAWRITE decreases DASD
requirements for performance data by up to 95% without
sacrificing performance information. The released DASD results
in measurable cost savings and makes the disk space available
for other applications. Tivoli's
Performance Reporter supports ESAWRITE history data as
input, eliminating the need to create raw monitor data, and
replacing the need to run a third product to reduce the monitor
Features and Benefits
ESAWRITE Eliminates the need to store raw data ever again.
DASD requirements for performance data are reduced by up to 95% by eliminating
the need to store raw monitor data before processing by ESAMAP.
ESAMAP's run-time, CPU and main storage requirements are significantly
ESAWRITE can be customized to automate history data collection and ESAMAP
Parameters provide for user-specification of intervals for history data;
user class groupings; transaction classes; and user service level analysis
Other extracts may be dynamically created in addition to the history files.
For example, ESAWRITE can automatically create an extract file for export
Control of ESAWRITE parameters is limited to authorized users.
Interfaces provided from History Archive (performance database) to capacity
planning tools such as MICS, SLR, SAS, and VMPAF.
