What if you didn’t have to worry about touching the JCL? With Compuware ThruPut Manager, make changes you need safely without the approval and oversight that can elongate the process.
There are many ways to look at the CPU Busy metric, all having very different meanings. For many, this is still a critical number. But is it the most important number?
Strobe and ThruPut Manager make batch management automagical while you continue to give your company the competitive edge by making online performance hum.
Smart software allows you to leave the routine work to automation or to new hires and explore more interesting, challenging work—the kind of work you never had time to consider.
Wait time grows exponentially with utilization; so, when you run near 100% CPU busy, you’re actually causing a huge amount of wait. ThruPut Manager uses dynamic initiators to optimize throughput.
ThruPut Manager is a 21st century solution to a 20th century problem. Learn how hand-managing batch performance has been rendered obsolete by our revolutionary batch automation solution.
Automated Capacity Management gets much attention for the MLC it saves; but, Service Level Manager, the automation engine of ThruPut Manager, provides direct and indirect value on its own.
While some industries have always had narrow margins, companies are more cost-focused than ever. Soft-capping can be scary, but you still need to save money. Practice safe-capping with LPAR Sets.
A recent study demonstrated that when you consider total costs with mainframes, UNIX boxes and Wintel hardware (hardware, support, software, people, environmentals), mainframes are cheaper.
While linear regression may work for CPU busy functions from 20-80%, it doesn’t help much at either end of the utilization graph, where you want to know the impact of transaction volume or batch workload changes.
Some sages, particularly in the distributed arena, like to say that capacity planning isn’t necessary anymore. Hardware is cheaper and virtualization makes better use of resources. But the sages are wrong!
ThruPut Manager includes Software Access Control, a feature that enables refined access control to licensed software. Ensure jobs run on the correct system and save on software license costs.
Systems programmers love metrics – and there are a lot of them! Leveraging its own Batch Service Metric, ThruPut Manager can help you set and achieve SLAs that are achievable and desirable.
Multi-tasking isn’t a great strategy for getting things done. Our brains don’t tolerate the 'interrupts’ well. But multi-tasking provides a real benefit when software does it, and some better than others.
Automating access control to expensive software can aid in your search for savings. ThruPut Manager's SAC facility gives you the control you need to save significant license costs.
A good part of our job is managing priorities given to us and delivering on expectations. ThruPut Manager automation gives you the time needed to focus on the things that lead to success in your work.
CPU time is a valuable resource. When the basic tools in your set don’t give you the controls you need, consider ThruPut Manager as a solution that offers new ways to manage your batch workload.
It’s inevitable that batch jobs will fight over limited system resources. In a capacity-constrained system, this can really cause delays, if jobs must wait a long time for CPU, memory or I/O channels.
You may prefer the granular control of workload, offered with LPAR Sets, to maximize MLC savings, or you may not prefer to put caps in place, but still wish to reduce demand.
