VitalSigns for IP | VIP | Overview

The best tool for monitoring the z/OS Communications Server and the mainframe network, especially the mainframe IP network.

Reduce Your Mainframe Costs !

Ease-of-use and low cost make VitalSigns z/OS software the ideal replacement for NetView® and NetMaster®. SDS's VitalSigns replacement program will save big money on your legacy network management products.

VitalSigns provides a full-spectrum tool set for automating, monitoring, and troubleshooting SNA applications, z/OS Communications Server, and mainframe TCP/IP networks.

VitalSigns for IP (VIP) provides IP network monitoring, Enterprise Extender monitoring, OSA monitoring, FTP monitoring, network history reporting, verifying service-level agreements.

VitalSigns for Network Automation and Control (VNAC) provides automation, scripting, centralized command and control.


It’s All About the Applications!

Even the remote applications…printers, servers, socket app’s.

If applications aren’t working, network speed doesn’t matter.

VitalSigns for IP can report what applications are running and who is using them. If any piece goes missing, VIP will alert you.

Printers and servers may be outside of the mainframe and outside of your turf, but when the mainframe can’t reach them, the users call you.

So get a VIP monitor. Know what’s up.

VIP Server Runs on z/OS

Typically, VIP monitoring Agents on any number of z/OS systems deliver their monitoring data to a single VIP Server. The VIP Server, in turn, delivers the z/OS data to VIP users at desktop web browsers.

The VIP Server most often runs on a z/OS system, via Unix System Services (USS).

In alternative configurations, VIP Agents might report to multiple VIP Servers, because the redundancy insures against breakdown. And VIP Servers can run outside of z/OS: they install equally well on Unix, Linux, or Windows machines.
