  • Thanks for your comment. Yes i believe GUI assisted tool will be a significant value for users. Mine (zJOS) was actually unplanned to happen. My business wasn't ISV and i didn't work for ISV. By the time i was challenged by CA user to make 2 enhancements: 1) to support jobstep level triggering for CA-7 and 2) to avoid rexx coding for OPS/MVS They asked me to do it because they know i had added a function to flow CA _Dispatch output to CA-Xcom for better distribution. By the time, i had no time to explore deeper on CA-7 and OPS/MVS internals, hence i took shortcut to develop zJOS as an alternative to replace both CA products.

  • Deja vu! I remember all this stuff with CA-7, ESP, Jobtrac... Of course, the difficult bit isn't the controlling of the jobflow and events. I even wrote enhancements for CA-7 to do stuff like that. The difficult bit is designing the workflow with user-friendly tools. This is where ESP is the big winner, with its graphical drag-and-drop workflow design environment. The rest of all of this has all been done before.

zJOS - Mainframe Automation Solution zJOS - Mainframe Automation Solution Presentation Transcript

  • zJOS-XDI® The Integrated z/OS Automation Solution © 2004 Deru Sudibyo Product Highlight
  • zJOS-XDI Solution to Integrated Automation
  • What is Offered by zJOS-XDI?
    • Event management system (EMS)
      • Automates actions against event occurrence for either a single z/OS host or cross inter-hosts for networked z/OS hosts.
      • Product/component name is zJOS/Sekar
    • Automatic jobs scheduling
      • Automates JES2-based jobs scheduling. Schedule flow can either for a single z/OS host or cross inter-hosts for networked z/OS hosts.
      • Product/component name is zJOS/Puspa
    • Automatic spool file distribution
      • Automates spool files download and distribution.
      • Product/component name is XDI/AutoXfer
  • zJOS-XDI Technology
    • Run on z/OS or OS/390 platforms with JES2
    • Provides EMS functions ( zJOS/Sekar )
    • Provides jobs scheduling functions ( zJOS/Puspa )
    • Support networked-z/OS total automation
    • Provides spool distribution functions ( XDI/AutoXfer )
    zJOS XDI z/OS (mainframe) Event Mgr Scheduler
  • Networked-z/OS Automation z/OS Agent zJOS XDI z/OS (mainframe) Event Mgr Scheduler z/OS Agent z/OS Agent
  • Networked-z/OS Automation (cont’d)
    • For example:
    • SYSPROD and DR
    • Events in DR can be automated from SYSPROD
    • Jobs in DR can be scheduled and controlled from SYSPROD
    z/OS - SYSDR Agent zJOS XDI z/OS - SYSPROD Event Mgr Scheduler
  • zJOS Event Management Solution
    • zJOS/Sekar – EMS Solution:
      • Facilitates users to define set of actions against each selected event.
      • Automates all user’s defined action-sets based on event occurrences.
        • In networked z/OS hosts, event–actions relationship can be one-to-one or one-to-many among hosts in the network.
    • Features:
      • Supports message (WTO and WTOR), command, timing (TOD), end-of-job (EOJ) and end-of-step (EOS) types of events.
      • Supports command, reply (to WTOR) and rule types of actions.
      • Supports networking agent (TCP/IP) for:
        • Inter-hosts event intercepting
        • Inter-hosts actions propagation
      • Supports timeframe filter to control action execution based on user’s specified date-range, time-range, day-of-week and national holiday calendar.
  • Integrated Event Management z/OS – SYS 2 zJOS EMS Manager z/OS – SYS 1 Event Action Event Action Event Action Event Event Action Action Action
  • zJOS Automatic Scheduling Solution
    • zJOS/Puspa – Jobs Scheduling Solution:
      • Facilitates users to define jobs schedule flows.
      • Automates all user’s defined jobs schedule based on job status event occurrences.
        • In networked z/OS hosts, predecessors-current-successors relationship can be crossed among hosts in the network.
    • Features:
      • Supports both step-level and job-level triggering mechanism
      • Supports almost unlimited combination of multi-condition triggering logic
      • Supports networking agent (TCP/IP) for:
        • Inter-hosts job-status information intercepting
        • Inter-hosts jobs propagation
      • Supports timeframe filter to control schedule execution based on user’s specified date-range, time-range, day-of-week and national holiday calendar.
      • Supports special/advanced calendar control in addition to timeframe filter such as first work-day after off-day, first and work-day of week or of month etc.
  • zJOS/Puspa - Ultimate Scheduler
    • Workload pipelining – the most efficient workload managemet.
      • By supporting job-step level triggering/tracking mechanism, schedule flow path can be minized to lower turn around time.
    • Boolean logic CC multitesting – the most flexible workload management.
      • By supporting multigroup boolean logic comparison of CC in 2
  • Workload Pipelining
    • A job may depend on its predecessor only for a certain job-step. Such job should not wait until the predecessor end.
    • By supporting job-step level triggering/tracking mechanism, schedule flow path can be minized to lower turn around time.

  • Boolean Logic CC Multitest
    • Users have more chance to implement any level of schedule flow complexities easily.
    • Application developers have more chance to provide their own multiple recovery flows mechanism.

  • XDI Spool Distribution Solution
    • XDI/AutoXfer – Spool Distribution Solution:
      • Facilitates users to define distribution parameters which include destinations and recipients, and spool files selection criteria.
        • Each destination can have one or more recipients.
      • Automates all user’s defined parameters based on spool file occurrences.
    • Features:
      • Supports text format conversion from MCC to ASA
      • Supports the following recipient’s PC text format:
        • Microsoft Wordpad
        • CA-Dispatch for PC
      • Supports disposition option to:
        • Keep original files
        • Purge original files
  • Increase DR Utilization with zJOS-XDI
  • How is DR Operated?
    • Does disaster recovery (DR) system just to keep data backup?
    • Don’t you think that DR machine can help the production machine?
    • zJOS-XDI would help you exploring the expensive DR machine, instead of just sleeping all the time.
  • zJOS-XDI Concept of DR
    • zJOS-XDI approach you to have GDPS without parallel sysplex.
      • DR and production machines are at the same level
      • Make both contents are the same.
    • DR and Production are just a matter of operation logic.
      • Select separatable programs and data, and make them as 2 groups of jobs.
      • One group runs on production machine and use DR machine as its backup.
      • The other group runs on DR machine and use production machine as its backup.
      • Lets zJOS-XDI manages both machines as productions and DR in flip-flop according to each group position.
