IBM Tivoli Monitoring (ITM), TEP enables numerous mainframe and distributed products to use a common GUI interface, providing a monitoring and management console for the IT environment. Absent this kind of tooling and integration, problem determination can take days to address. “You run a report, get a report back, study the report, figure out what’s going on, go to the next level, get another report, so on down the line. You may have to talk to three or four different people before you get to the root of the problem and can solve it, whereas with our solution it could literally only take a couple of mouse clicks to find and solve the problem,” Teter says. “That’s the power integration brings. It looks like a soft ROI but when customers see it they recognize it. That alone can save customers a lot of time and money.”

information to monitor and manage performance and availability, ensure efficient resource utilization and adapt quickly to change.

Hidden Inefficiencies
Teter says many mainframe customers have hidden inefficiencies in their storage environments that have grown over many years because it’s difficult and time

The TEP interface not only integrates among System z storage-management products, but also with the OMEGA MON *, ITM and IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager (ITCAM) suites. This means TEP can bring System z storage-management power into monitoring your enterprise with a component of the operational-management layer called Ser vice Management Center for System z (SMCz). The at-a-glance dashboard provides the necessar y

consuming to find the problems. These hidden efficiencies can silently consume system resources and budgets, without causing obvious problems or outages. “Most customers say they haven’t done an HSM audit in years. They can take a lot of time to run, and considerable effort to sift through and correct the problems that are identified,” Teter says. “Organizations just can’t devote the amount of CPU time or personnel resource necessary to audit on a regular basis.
