Read through these three high-level steps that will help you as you work to make performance a key part of enterprise DevOps.
Learn how ThruPut Manager's Automated Capacity Management works with IBM’s sub-capacity pricing to further reduce monthly software costs without impacting online transaction processing workloads and critical batch work.
Learn how to use Compuware ThruPut Manager NAGging Services, part of the Dataset Contention Services (DCS), to automatically nag a user to give up a dataset you need for production started tasks or batch.
If your developers are using Agile Development to create and modify code, your performance analysts need to up their game and start doing agile batch performance management.
What if veteran sysprogs could ease the journey for next-gen mainframers? How about embracing technology that makes it easier for new people to come up to speed rapidly?
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.
