1 XINFO 3.4 What‘s New HORIZONT Software for Datacenters Garmischer Str. 8 D München Tel ++49(0)89 / The IT Information System XINFO

2 HORIZONT 2 XINFO ® XINFO 3.4 Scheduling Systems (CA-7, Control-M, Cron, TWSz, UC4) Scheduling Systems JCL (Scanner-Improvements, Data Flowchart) JCL Space z/OS (CA-Disk, SMS-Management) Space z/OS Beta 93 (Spool History) Beta 93 SMF (CICS Transactions) SMF IMS (PSB/Transactions, DBD) IMS Source Scanner (Assembler, Cobol, PL/1, Natural, Easytrieve) Source Scanner Eclipse Plugin PC Client (Line breaks) PC Client XINFO DS (Improvements in installation, performance, administration) XINFO DS Miscellaneous (TCP/IP Performance, ISPF Region) Miscellaneous Planning (what is coming next?) Planning XINFO 3.4 is available since May It has following new functions:

3 HORIZONT 3 XINFO ® Scheduling Systems CA-7 (Jobnetplan without Conditional Dependencies) CA-7 Control-M (Job-Runtime-Barchart) Control-M Cron Scanner (Unix) Cron Scanner TWS for z/OS (Barchart, Description in Netplan-Symbols, Support of TWS for z/OS 8.5) TWS for z/OS UC4 (Object-Documentation, graphical Object-Hierarchy) UC4 Improvements are implemented for following schedulers:

4 HORIZONT 4 XINFO ® CA-7 Jobnetplan Trigger The Jobnetplan shows different dependency types: Job Predecessor Requirement CA-7 CPU JOB PREDECESSORS FUNCTION: (FORMAT,LIST,UPD) PAGE 0001 PRED FOR JOB: JOB0D LIST-SCHID: OPT SCHID LEADTM PRED-JOB NEXT-RUN JOB0C YES JOB0A YES ?JOB0B YES JOB0E YES /JOB0X YES This Predecessor-Types are not always desired New: Conditional Pred.

5 HORIZONT 5 XINFO ® CA-7 Jobnetplan In this view, „mutually exclusive“ (negative dep.) and „conditional Dependencies“ are not shown

6 HORIZONT 6 XINFO ® CA-7 Jobnetplan That makes the graphic better readable

7 HORIZONT 7 XINFO ® CTM Barchart - Selection New Barchart Selection Criteria

8 HORIZONT 8 XINFO ® CTM Barchart - Result z/OS Jobs Non-z/OS Jobs

9 HORIZONT 9 XINFO ® Crontab Cron - The cron scanner reads the crontab contents from several systems

10 HORIZONT 10 XINFO ® Crontab Easy read access to all crontabs from one single point We recommend, to convert these tasks to a real scheduling system

11 HORIZONT 11 XINFO ® TWS Barchart - Selection New Barchart Select by TWS values. e.g. application id, workstation

12 HORIZONT 12 XINFO ® TWS Barchart - Result New Barchart TWS values

65 HORIZONT 65 XINFO ® Improvements for XINFO DS Better Performance during DB update –Faster because of new Index and enhanced SQL-Statements Easier Installation –No need to maintain the configuration files and license keys locally anymore. They can be send automatically from the central server to each local collector/scanner. Administrator GUI –New Views to monitor the jobs: – Planned, Active, Finished Jobs –View the Job-Log per right mouse click XINFO DS is the „distributed” part of XINFO and involves extra scanner for Unix/Windows systems, collectors (agents) und an own Server plus Administrator-GUI to control the scanner jobs. Improvements:

66 HORIZONT 66 XINFO ® XINFO DS Administration Planned scanner jobs On that system (Collector) Next run date/time

67 HORIZONT 67 XINFO ® XINFO DS Administration Finished scanner jobs Status

68 HORIZONT 68 XINFO ® XINFO DS Administration Right mouse, show the Joblog

69 HORIZONT 69 XINFO ® Miscellaneous TCP/IP communication –Drastically faster (>> 100%) ! It is available for all 3.x Versions Please download the latest version of the PC-Client and z/OS-Server (XXRFXD4) from ISPF dialog –due to compression 50% less region needed (important for large result lists)

70 HORIZONT 70 XINFO ® XINFO x.x - What’s coming next JAVA Scanner “Google” search –Specify a word and XINFO looks it up in all columns of all tables –“all columns” and “all tables” can be administrated, means the admin can specify where to search Following functions and features are currently under construction:
