Full Network and System Automation
VitalSigns for NAC can recognize, copy, and pass on specific console messages in real time.
That means you can send immediate alerts regarding trouble in essential z/OS applications and network resources.
Or trigger automatic repair and restart programs.
Versatile z/OS Mainframe REXX Support
VNAC provides full-service zOS mainframe REXX support.
Console messages can trigger zOS mainframe REXX scripts to…
- Manage networks
- Issue z/OS operator commands
- Pass console messages through REXX sockets to other management programs
–e.g. Microsoft Exchange and ServiceDesk.
- Assist in IPL sequences
You can easily migrate existing z/OS mainframe REXX scripts to VNAC with little or no change required.
VNAC responds to any system or network message.
Configure VNAC to listen for messages
by job name (TCPIP, VTAM, CICS, IMS, JES, etc.)
by message ID (EZZ*, IST*, DFH*, HASP*, etc.).
VitalSigns for NAC makes it easy to diagnose and correct mainframe problems, even in your sleep. When VNAC is partnered with VIP, critical z/OS issues are no match. The two products work so well together that SDS is offering VIP for free when you replace NetMaster® or another legacy mainframe network and system monitor with VNAC.
