Application Workload Modeler can help you answer the following types of questions:
- Are our TCP/IP and SNA networks meeting our committed Service Level Agreements?
- Will consolidating functions onto zSeries improve response time?
- What's the real cause of the congestion we are experiencing: the application or the network?
- What is the most cost effective way to analyze our network performance before and after network infrastructure changes?
- When migrating from 374x NCP's, how can we analyze the implications of protocol, connectivity, and security decisions?
- What are the performance implications of migrating from ESCON to OSA-Express, SNA to Enterprise Extender, or implementing SSL?
Features of Application Workload Modeler:
- Two modes of operation:
- Control multiple nodes from a single point
- Simulate large numbers of clients and stress workload levels from a single host or from several hosts.
- When several hosts are used, a single AWM instance is designated as the controller.
- The controller coordinates the set-up and execution of the test and gathers results for all AWM client and server instances involved in the test.
- Flexibility with cross platform support
- AWM clients and servers are supported on z/OS, OS/390 (V2R10), Linux on zSeries, and Linux.
- Any combination of platforms may be chosen for client and server.
- AWM clients can interact with well-known TCP/IP application servers running on any platform. Only the AWM client must be on a platform supported by AWM.
- Generate comprehensive analysis data
- Data gathered includes detailed statistics describing throughput levels, response times, response time variance, and standard deviation metrics.
- Statistics can be viewed during the test and in final reports.
- Reports include statistics for each AWM instance as well as aggregate data for the overall test.
- Maximize effectiveness with AWM Consulting and Services
