z/TPF I/O Performance Study Results -
This whitepaper provides results and analysis of an I/O performance study done
at the IBM Poughkeepsie Performance Laboratory using z/TPF running on a z9
host with System Storage DS8300 attached. It illustrates the outstanding
performance synergy of an "all IBM" software and hardware solution for large
scale TPF applications.
IBM z/TPF Business Perspective -
Transaction Processing Facility (TPF) is IBM's specialized operating system
and transaction processor for high-end, high-volume, high-bandwidth computing.
Designed to excel in the most demanding operational environments, TPF is
optimized for large scale computing and takes advantage of the outstanding
memory and I/O management capabilities of the IBM System z family.
z/TPF - The evolution of transaction processing to open standards
(PDF) describes how
businesses that rely on transaction processing can leverage centralized
and specialized critical technology
integrated in a competitive, open systems-based IT model.
TPF and Financial Services describes TPF's
role and success in meeting the demanding requirements of some of today's
largest global financial networks.
TPF and HVTP provides insight and
of the unique and demanding requirements of the High Volume Transaction
Processing environment, and how TPF overcomes the ever increasing HVTP
Optimize high-volume transaction processing on the mainframe....extraordinary demands for
around-the-clock operations require rock-solid speed, availability, reliability, resiliency, scalability and performance.
"An introduction to z/TPF" (6:28 - 2 Aug 07) -
Bill Supon talks about IBM Transaction Processing Facility products
IBM's unparalleled high-end, high-volume operating systems and transaction
processors. As well as TPF, he looks at z/TPF the latest version of the TPF
system, enhanced to include many state-of-the-art technologies, including a
"Did you say mainframe?!" podcasts -
IBM experts discuss important mainframe-related hardware and software issues.
Introduction to the z/TPF system - This information center document provides a high level perspective on the capabilities of z/TPF.
- z/TPF C/C++ Performance -
"For those accustomed to programming with the z/OS C/C++ compiler for the TPF 4.1 system, the
application landscape might seem identical in the z/TPF system. It is not. The performance guidelines
you might have used in the past changed a little. This article explains these changes as
applicable to gcc and g++."
