Features, advantages and benefits
Features Advantages Benefits
Enhanced 3270 User Interface Presents color coded comprehensive views across multiple sysplex Simplify and faster monitoring and management from a single view z/OS and subsystems
Built-in Problem Solving Scenarios Based on customer input, User Interface built to focus on typical IT problems to all for faster finding and fixing of those problems Increased system availability by finding problems before they become outages. Improved productivity by simplifying work required by SMEs to monitor and manage the mainframe.
Tivoli Monitoring Installation, Configuration and Maintenance with new Self-Describing Agent and Parmgen support Simplifies the set-up and configuration of OMEGAMON. Provides pre-configured parameters and fewer jobs to install and update. Saves SME time, provides faster installation, decreases the maintenance window and with fewer jobs decreases failures.
Redesigned and decreased OMEGAMON address spaces Fewer address spaces required to run OMEGAMON Significant savings in software costs and mainframe resources requirements
Collects network data directly from Comm Server Network Mgmt IF Uses well documented and supported Comm Server IF to collect data directly Reduces CPU Usage
Supports new IBM zEnteprise Network Archiecture Ability to monitor both dedicated data and management LANs See the stress on new OSA adapters before it becomes a problem
Ability to turn data collection on and off Collect only data needed by the enterprise Reduces CPU and resource usage
Cross-product integration Get even greater synergy with IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS and other IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON products In-context links between products improves problem diagnosis and reduces recovery time.

New V5.1.0 Release!

New capabilities of IBM® Tivoli® OMEGAMON® XE for Mainframe Networks V5.1 are designed to:

In addition:

IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for Mainframe Networks allows proactive monitoring and managing network performance of z/OS system resources and critical applications. OMEGAMON XE for Mainframe Networks collects network performance data across z/OS systems, whether it’s TCP/IP resources, SNA resources, or a combination of both, and presents the information in the Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEP)

When a network performance problem – or potential problem – occurs, alerts are raised by OMEGAMON XE for Mainframe Networks or sent to event managing solutions such as IBM Tivoli Event Console or IBM NetView for z/OS. For example, Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for Mainframe Networks will analyze network performance among CICS, DB2, IMS and other key systems to identify resource loss and unstable connections, helping your business maintain the availability and performance you need to achieve business service levels.

Network data is available across the z/OS enterprise. The nimble 3270 interface is designed from the ground up as a problem solving tool, while the robust GUI interface provides detailed (but simple to implement) alerting, versatile monitoring dashboards, and the ability to drill down to get detaeils. Network components can be viewed as a whole as well as individual components.

Dynamic Workspace Linking (DWL) allows you to easily navigate between Tivoli Enterprise Portal workspaces. The advanced linking of DWL aids problem determination, improves integration across your monitoring solutions, and allows you to quickly determine the root cause of a problem. Predefined cross-product links provided by the OMEGAMON XE products allow you to obtain additional information about systems, subsystems, resources or network components that are being monitored and managed.
