Overview

Do you need to know at a glance what is happening on all the systems in your network, even though they are on multiple platforms in numerous locations worldwide? Do you need to quickly contain and resolve remote operational emergencies from a single desktop? Does your company manage the computer resources of several other companies, and do you want to keep the operator assigned to company A from seeing the resources of company B?

TME 10 (TM) NetView (R) for OS/390 (TM) Version 1 Release 2 (NetView for OS/390) can solve these enterprise management problems and more. Using NetView for OS/390, you can centrally, easily, and reliably manage your systems and networks that are in complex, distributed environments on multiple platforms. Release 2 provides significant enhancements with new technologies, expanded end-user support, and enriched functionality.

Using Java (TM) and object-oriented technology, the new NetView Management Console (NMC) enables you to display topology and status information about network and system resources in a graphical format. NMC expands the platforms previously provided by NetView Graphic Monitor Facility to other Java-enabled platforms. The NetView 3270 Java client is now packaged with NetView for OS/390 and includes color and large-screen support. This client provides an enhanced graphical user interface to emulate 3270 functions for NetView for OS/390 using TCP/IP connectivity.

A new Web server function allows operators to access NetView for OS/390 and issue commands through an Internet Web browser. NetView for OS/390 automation has added several enhancements to its already robust capabilities. Chief among them is the ability to operate an automation table in test mode, concatenate multiple automation tables, dynamically turn sections of the automation table on and off, and send notifications by a variety of means, including e-mail, paging service, or messages.

Another key enhancement is the ability to pro-actively monitor and manage TCP/IP resources and sessions, including the correlation of TCP/IP data with SNA session data, all from a central NetView within your enterprise.

Additionally, the NetView for OS/390 pipeline support has added significant new stages to facilitate complex and flexible processing of management and automation operations.

With these and the many more functions delivered in Release 2, NetView for OS/390 can improve your network efficiency, increase system availability, and decrease the overall cost of systems management.

DESCRIPTION

Whether you have a small installation or you are managing a large, distributed enterprise, NetView for OS/390 provides efficient systems and network management capability on most platforms. NetView for OS/390 helps you achieve business goals by providing support in the following areas.

End-to-end Network Management: NetView gives you comprehensive end-to-end systems and network management for a variety of resources, including SNA, TCP/IP, multi-platform, and multivendor networks.

Centralized or Distributed Management: With NetView for OS/390, you can centralize systems and network management with a single-host environment. You can also consolidate operations of many systems in a multiple-host environment using automation for many tasks.

Automation: With NetView for OS/390, you can reduce the number of routine or repetitive tasks that your operators must perform. You can automate NetView for OS/390 so that many operation tasks are automatically performed in distributed hosts. Automation is available in all three NetView for OS/390 product packages.

Monitoring and Operating Systems and Networks: A wide range of NetView for OS/390 operator services can assist you in monitoring and operating your systems and networks. NetView for OS/390 also provides extensive function for operating and accessing remote systems. In addition, NetView for OS/390 lets you access Information/Management databases through the NetView for OS/390 bridge function.

Monitoring and Operating Host Systems: Operators can monitor single or multiple host systems, across platforms, and from one or several NetView for OS/390 consoles as needed. For workstations with 3270 emulation sessions, you can use one workstation for multiple NetView for OS/390 operators working in shifts and restrict individual access to specific systems and subsystems. NetView for OS/390 functions new to Release 2 are highlighted in the following sections.



Automation

The already robust capabilities of NetView for OS/390 automation have been enhanced. You can now:

  • Turn segments of the automation table on or off.

  • Test the automation table logic before you put it into production.

  • Separate related automation table activities into discrete tables based on your criteria.

  • Monitor and manage TCP/IP resources and sessions attached to MVS (TM) TCP/IP.

  • Use the Notification Policy support to choose how you wish to notify support personnel of network-related events.

  • Display a view of resources that could not be recovered automatically and require manual operator action.

  • Enhance performance by making use of an internal cache for frequently used dataset members.

  • Use international date and time formats when setting automation timers.
Testing the Automation Table: Testing your automation table before using it can avoid costly delays. With Release 2, you can now also test the logic of your automation before putting it into use.

Additional Automation Table Flexibility: From time to time, you might schedule down time for network resources to apply maintenance. Events, alerts, and messages relating to those resources might still be reported to NetView for OS/390, but now you can handle them in one of the following ways:

  • Automation table statements can be turned on or off to deal with events, alerts, and messages.

  • Automation table statements can be grouped and placed in separate tables, based on your criteria, and then particular tables can be activated or inactivated as you need to perform specific tasks.
Message Routing: New function in NetView's ASSIGN command enables you to define which operators are to receive solicited, unsolicited, or authorized messages and to efficiently distribute workload based on the originating job name or other attributes.

Notification Policy: With NetView for OS/390 Release 2, you can now choose how you wish to be notified of events within your network and the actions which automation may be taking. Example Notification actions include messages, Alerts, Tivoli Enterprise Console (T/EC) updates, beeper requests, or e-mail requests. You can choose to enable or disable any of these notification types based on resource name, resource type, or particular regions within your network. Plus, you can add your own notification action into the list, such as sending a fax to one of your vendors. All of this is accomplished via a set of robust policy definitions.

You can customize and tailor the policy to suit your shop's needs. For example, e-mail "first_shift_ops" during the day while Paging "third_shift_ops" at night. You can also easily plug in your own (or third party) interface routine instead of using the supplied sample for NetFinity for OS/2 (R). User exits are supported for beeper and e-mail requests to allow you to query your own database.

If you run your enterprise from the TEC, then you can be notified of exception conditions that have occurred within your network.

Additionally, NetView for OS/390 forwards the following alerts to TEC by default:

  • Critical automation failure threshold exceeded
  • No more monitoring intervals are defined
  • A reminder that a specific resource is still down
  • A bridge congestion condition exists
  • A NameServer failures threshold has been exceeded
The Operator Intervention View: To make efficient use of your network operators' time, NetView for OS/390 already provides graphical exception views to isolate resources that are in an undesirable state. Taking this concept a step further, the Automated Operations Network (AON) component of NetView for OS/390 provides the Operator Intervention View (OIV).

For example, the status of a resource may be critical, and AON is attempting to restore the resource to an acceptable state. If the resource cannot be recovered because a critical threshold is reached, AON will place the resource in the OIV, signaling the operator that intervention is needed. If a resource returns to a satisfactory status, it is deleted from the OIV.

Performance: Performance of automation tasks is significantly enhanced by the introduction of a new internal cache for frequently read dataset members from NetView for OS/390 datasets. NetView for OS/390 gives you the flexibility to tune the frequency of member replacement in the cache, according to your needs, based on cache size and access frequency. You can also add or drop members from this cache as needed.

TCP/IP Management: NetView for OS/390 Release 2 provides the ability to monitor and manage TCP/IP resources and sessions attached to MVS TCP/IP. This eliminates the need to establish separate sessions for TSO or UNIX (R). All of the management is now centralized to NetView for OS/390. Support is also provided for multiple concurrent TCP/IP stacks as well as remote communications to other NetView domains and their TCP/IP stacks.

A Session Management function is now provided by NetView for OS/390 to aid in problem determination of your Telnet and FTP sessions. The Session Management function quickly helps you identify if a session is hung. Operators can then take the appropriate actions, such as dropping the hung session. The Session Management function also assists you by correlating your Telnet or FTP session (of TCP/IP origin) with data retrieved from MVS (of SNA origin), thereby improving your problem diagnosis.



Data Management

Data management through NetView's Resource Object Data Manager (RODM) is now easier and more flexible. In order to help safeguard your data, RODM provides a checkpoint mechanism that allows you to take a snapshot of the data that it holds. Enhancements have been added to provide several checkpoint options for cold-starting. Depending on your checkpoint needs, RODM can:

  • Continue to require the allocation of sufficiently large checkpoint datasets.

  • Check for dataset allocation and size, but continue setup, even if they are too small or have not been allocated.

  • Not set up the checkpoint function at all.
Additional flexibility is also provided for the RODM log. To enable you to limit the amount of data printed by the RODM log formatting program, you now have the option of specifying a time period for which data should be printed.



Network Management

NetView is rich in network management functions and has been enriched even further to include:

  • Management of NetWare V4
    • Support for NetWare Directory Services
    • Support for TCP/IP connectivity to the agent from NetView for OS/390
  • Management of TME 10 Managed Region (TMR) resources
  • Support for ATM and IP agents on TME 10 NetView 5.0
  • Graphical topology monitoring support on:
    • Windows NT (R)
    • Windows (TM) 95
    • AIX (R)
    • Sun Solaris
    • OS/2
  • Enhanced topology correlation
    • Enhanced information on SNA to non-SNA correlations
    • Correlation of additional resources into consolidated views
    • Support for GMFHS resources
    • Correlation on a customer-specific group name, such as "LondonSales"
Network management capability also includes event/automation services and interfaces that you can use to graphically display RODM views.

Event/Automation Service: The event/automation service enables you to effectively manage both distributed and S/390 events from a single interface on a single console. If you choose to manage your enterprise from NetView for OS/390, or from the TME 10 Enterprise Console (TEC), you can do that. In either case, NetView's event/automation service provides:

  • Faster problem isolation and resolution.
  • Improved system availability through event management.
  • Highly automated, cross-platform responses to complex problems.
The event/automation service consists of the following components:
  • Alert Adapter

    The alert adapter is a TME 10 event adapter that converts NetView for OS/390 alerts to TEC events and forwards the events from NetView for OS/390 to the TEC event server. The alert adapter collects filtered SNA alerts directly from the NetView for OS/390 hardware monitor and translates the alerts into the appropriate TEC event format.

  • Message Adapter

    The message adapter collects filtered messages directly from the NetView for OS/390 message automation table and converts them into TEC events.

  • Event Receiver

    The event receiver receives events from the TEC, converts them into SNA alerts, and forwards them to the NetView for OS/390 hardware monitor. The events are filtered and routed to the NetView for OS/390 automation table.

Instrumentation Events: Instrumentation events can be sent directly from TME 10 NetView for OS/390 to TME 10 GEM across the NETCONV session. This eliminates the need for the following in order to send instrumentation events from NetView for OS/390 to TME 10 GEM:
  • Event/Automation Service
  • TME 10 Enterprise Console (TEC)
  • TCP/IP connectivity in TME 10 NetView for OS/390
Instrumentation events are used to build business system views in TME 10 GEM, such as the Topology Display Subsystem and the Event Flow Subsystem.

SNA Topology Resource Filtering: Utilizing new function provided in CS/390 V2R5 SNA Services, some types of resources can now be filtered out of local topology reports provided to NetView's SNA Topology Manager (SNATM). This can reduce:

  • Unnecessary network traffic.

  • Processing time for local topology in SNATM.

  • Processing time for displaying graphical views based on local topology.

  • Storage usage in RODM for local topology.
NetView Management Console: The new NetView for OS/390 management console (NMC) offers a graphical interface that provides Resource Object Data Manager (RODM) information and the freedom of managing from the platform of your choice. It includes all the same views as previously provided in NGMF. Using Java and object-oriented technology, NMC enables management of RODM-based network information from platforms such as OS/2, Windows NT, Windows 95, AIX, and Sun Solaris.

NMC displays all RODM views, including network and exception views, and views from MSM, SNATM, and GMFHS. You can print, list, zoom, and customize views.

You can run NGMF in parallel with NMC to ease your migration from NGMF to NMC. NMC provides a majority of NGMF functionality using a new, contemporary GUI.

The NMC enables users to:

  • Work at their workstation of choice, not limited to OS/2.

  • Add background pictures to views using industry-standard GIF or JPEG formatted files.

  • Customize and save specific views.

  • Issue commands and view the responses.
The NMC server provides:
  • RODM as the single point of definition for resource types.

  • Communications using TCP/IP or LU6.2.

  • Specified views that are saved and loaded at operator log on.

  • Support that is available at any client workstation.
3270 Java Client: The NetView 3270 Java client provides access to NetView for OS/390 through TCP/IP from most Java-capable workstations. Using the client, you can access both the command facility and full-screen applications available from NetView for OS/390. Enhancements in NetView for OS/390 Version 1 Release 2 make it even easier to use than ever before.

Note: The NetView 3270 Java Client can be launched from NMC.



Other Enhancements

NetView Web Server: With the NetView for OS/390 Web server enhancement, operators can access NetView for OS/390 and issue commands through a Web browser. With the Web server, NetView for OS/390 provides HTML files that enable you to enter NetView for OS/390 commands, link to another HTML file, and dynamically create your own HTML files.

DB2 Access: A Structured Query Language (SQL) interface is supported in NetView for OS/390 REXX routines that enables DB2 access.

International Date and Time Format: NetView for OS/390 enables international customers to customize the display format of the date and time. The international date and time format can also be used to set automation timers.

PIPE Commands: Pipelines and WINDOW now have access to OpenEdition (R) (UNIX) commands. These include "osnmp" with its GET and SET function, as well as "onestat", "oping", and so on. Also, pipelines and WINDOW have access to TSO commands including NETSTAT and PING.

Additional pipe support provides access to the NetView program-to-program interface (PPI) from NetView REXX routines.

Other pipeline enhancements include improved access to task and command global variables, including compare-and-swap capability. A QSAM write capability is built in. Pipelines has enhanced multi-stream capability and improved data manipulation and conversion.

NIAF/2 Installation: The NetView for OS/390 Installation and Administration Facility/2 (NIAF/2) is a workstation-based installation tool that enables new users and users migrating from NetView for MVS V2R3, V2R4, V3R1, or TME 10 NetView for OS/390 V1R1 to install the TME 10 NetView for OS/390 V1R2 program and perform administrative tasks. NIAF/2 also enables users to maintain a current level of the NetView program.

IDLEOFF: Enhancements to IDLEOFF allow you to identify operators who should not be automatically logged off if they are idle for more than a specified period of time.

Timer Enhancements: New timer enhancements include:

  • An option has been added to the timer function so that notification can be received if a command issued by a timer failed to execute.

  • A routing option has been added to the AFTER, AT (R), and EVERY commands, which enables the command to be queued to any operator or group at a specified time. Use the LIST TIMER command to display timer requests.

  • The PURGE TIMER command response DSI205I now includes a list of timer IDs that were purged.
Browse Enhancements: Log Browse now supports message color (foreground color and extended highlighting; blink, underline, and reverse-video). You will now see the same color and highlighting in the log as on the NCCF screen. (Note: The heritage Statmon alert-selection mode continues to utilize its own color scheme.)

Member browse now optionally provides the %INCLUDE structure and which dataset each member was read from, along with the data.

The LIST CLIST command now supports LOADCL'd clists. If the clist is not LOADCL'd, it displays the clist on disk (DSICLD). LIST indicates whether the clist was found in storage or on disk.

Software Requirements

Required for All Packaging Options: This section defines the minimum programming requirements for TME 10 NetView for OS/390 and its operating environments. Specific functions of NetView for OS/390 may require additional products or higher levels of the products as noted below.

TME 10 NetView for OS/390 is executed as an application on the OS/390 or MVS/ESA operating system, with VTAM. NetView for OS/390 support is provided at the listed levels or subsequent levels that are upward-compatible, unless otherwise stated. Upward compatibility means that functions provided by the earlier releases are still supported.

TME 10 NetView for OS/390 is executed as a subsystem in the following S/390 (R) environment:

  • MVS/ESA SP (TM)-JES2 Version 5 Release 2.2 (5655-068) or MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 2.2 (5655-069)
    • ACF/VTAM (R) Version 4 Release 3 for MVS/ESA (5695-117) or later

Note: Upward compatibility means that functions provided by the earlier releases are still supported.

The NetView Graphic Monitor Facility workstation code provided with NetView Version 2 is not upwardly compatible. TME 10 NetView for OS/390 workstation code must be used in conjunction with the TME 10 NetView for OS/390 host.

A NetView for OS/390 setting allows operators to use a NetView Version 3 Release 1 Graphic Data Server workstation to communicate with the TME 10 NetView for OS/390 programs during your migration to TME 10 NetView for OS/390.

System Definition Compatibility: For equivalent, non-system dependent functions, TME 10 NetView for OS/390 will operate with the definition statements and the command lists of the following:

  • NetView Version 2 Release 3 for VM/ESA, and VSE/ESA
  • NetView Version 2 Release 4 for MVS/ESA
  • NetView Version 3 Release 1 for MVS/ESA
For equivalent non-system dependent functions, TME 10 NetView for OS/390 will operate with the REXX procedures of NetView Version 2 and Version 3.

The NetView constants module DSICTMOD should be updated and reassembled as part of the installation of TME 10 NetView for OS/390.

User applications, written for these NetView releases in accordance with NetView customization publications and using NetView customization services, will be source compatible. A re-assembly or re-compile using NetView for OS/390 macro libraries is required.

If user customization code is being migrated from one operating system release to another, user code that contains system-dependent functions may not run and may require conversion.
