We want to monitor mainframe apart from z/OS. As CA APM provides powerpack and extension for IBM z/OS.
But if the OS is not z/OS, then can we monitor it?
We also have CICS Transaction Gateway monitoring which should provide you the link between the application tier to the mainframe.
Please look at the extension (aka PowerPack which is pre-9.x term) guide for details.
When you say "apart from z/OS", do you mean a mainframe not supplied by IBM? (eg Fujitsu) Or do you mean a subsystem on an IBM mainframe like CICS, IMS, USS, etc, rather than TSO?
Apart from Z/OS means yes mainframe not supplied by IBM. as CA provides extension for IBM CICS also as suggested by Hiko. I am new to mainframe not able to coorelate with mainframe which is not using IBM OS. Please advice.
Can you be more specific about what is running on the mainframe? As others posted, depending on the platform and applications you are trying to monitor, CA APM may include support or offer integration with CA mainframe tools like SYSVIEW, INSIGHT, NETMASTER - it all depends on what you are trying to monitor.
Is it CICS, IMS, DB2, MQ, Java?
What is the communication from distributed systems to host? web services? CTG? MQ?
