ZEN Monitoring Solutions

The complexity and dynamic nature of modern networks, consisting as they do of multiple applications, interconnected WAN's/LAN's and a plethora of network devices, means problems are bound to arise. Any network-related problem, whether poor response times, an unavailable application or a full-blown outage, will have an impact on your ability to conduct business. The scale of the impact is directly related to how long it takes to resolve the problem. The question is, how can you ensure the impact is minimized?

Rapid problem resolution is the answer. To resolve a problem you have to understand it. To understand it you have to have visibility into all the possible causes of the problem. Given the complexity of mainframe networks and the range of possible sources of information, trying to do this 'by hand' will not yield swift results. Monitoring Software that dynamically discovers your network and automatically alerts you to problems is the most efficient way of dealing with these problems.

William Data Systems are experts in providing state-of-the-art network monitoring tools for z/OS. Pioneers of the direct stack interface for IP Monitoring, the first dedicated APPN/HPR & EE Monitor and another 'first', the only dedicated monitor for Open Systems Adapters, our pedigree in providing ground-breaking monitoring capabilities for z/OS networks is second to none. In addition to the obvious benefits of rapid problem resolution, WDS Monitor's can actually warn you of an impending problem before the situation becomes critical.

ZEN OSA Monitoring Solutions

ZEN OSA MONITOR (ZOM) understands the multi-faceted nature of the OSA. By taking a 'deep-dive' approach to data-gathering it is able to detect immediately state changes, congestion and queue depth issues, along with many, many other pointers which are not detected by IP Monitors, any of which could indicate an impending problem.
