For ordering, contact:
Your IBM representative or the Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: LE001).
IBM Tivoli® Monitoring for Network Performance monitors, records, and interactively reports communications network performance and utilization for TCP/IP and SNA networks on OS/390® and z/OS systems. It provides the timely analysis of traffic flow, transit times, and component use for network tuning and problem determination.
IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Network Performance will:
It can display all the channel-attached processors and links and their connectivity status in real time. The product can identify any device that is unavailable or has exceeded the threshold queue with the LinkView feature, automatically notifying the operations staff and the supporting automation services. The Syspoint feature summarizes the status of the sockets and the connectivity to all your sessions in real time for all the systems you are monitoring. You can use the Port Workload feature to zoom in to any port/application or session to view additional detail. You can display summary and detail data on Alerts. And using the BatchPR mainframe reporting option, you can configure data sources and generate reports on response time and availability.
Easy To Install
In most environments, IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Network Performance components can be installed, configured, and run in less than one day, resulting in improved operations and improved help desk productivity.
New In This Release for TCP/IP Networks:

This product is translated into Japanese and available February 14, 2003.
Batch Reporting Enhancements
In addition to the five current BatchPR reports (System Level Summary, Resource Performance Summary Report, Resource Availability Summary Report, Resource Performance Detail Report, and Resource Availability Detail Report) these will be added in this release:
Support for z/OS SMF 119 Records
The z/OS and OS/390 operating systems create System Management Facility (SMF) records reflecting the wide variety of activities within their execution environment. Before this release the product used SMF Record 118 whose data is being migrated to a new record 119 by the operating system. This release will provide compatibility of the new information in SMF 119. If customers choose to write 119 records only, this release will be able to provide the same reports that are based on the 118 records (for example, SessionLog, API Expert, Telnet Expert, and FTP Expert).
Support for MVS Commands
The "D OMVS" command will be accessible from the Command Tab, providing expert-assisted interface to display and diagnose current OMVS-based settings and associated Unix System Services, (USS) processes.
Enterprise Extender Expert
The UDP section in Connect Expert will be summarized in two parts: the Enterprise Extender (EE) Expert, and non-Enterprise Extender UDP sessions. Each part will also include new throughput in/out information. The Enterprise Extender Expert will provide throughput information (Thru24 Report) for the current monitoring interval, the last monitoring interval, and since midnight. It will also provide hyperlinks to the APING and "D NETS, RTPS" commands for testing EE connections. The Enterprise Extender Expert Report provides workload (bytes in and bytes out) and throughput (bytes in/sec and bytes out/sec) information for each of the Enterprise Extender's UDP ports (port numbers 12000 12004).
Real-time display for near-time throughput information such as current monitoring interval, last monitoring interval, and since midnight for comparison. This feature will be available in LinkView and Enterprise Extender (EE) real-time display. Throughput data has been added to all Connect Expert real-time reports (UDP Expert, the new Enterprise Extender (EE) Expert, and the TCP Expert reports).
The Thru-99 feature consists of historical throughput information reports using interval records for different time-frames such as hourly, daily, and monthly. LinkView Report provides historical (daily and hourly) workload and throughput information on links. Enterprise Extender Report provides historical (daily and hourly) workload and throughput information on Enterprise Extender (EE).
Exploit new FTP exit (FTPOSTPR)
The FTP server Activity Log will contain new information about FTP client
and command status, provided by the new FTP exit FTPOSTPR, which is
called upon completion of the FTP commands RETR, STOR, STOU, APPE, DELE,
and RNTO. New information available will be the user ID, the Client IP
Address, the current file type and directory type, and the FTP reply
code. (This new exit is limited to z/OS 1.2 and later.)
