ThruPut Manager Product Features

Many of the key features of ThruPut Manager automation are described below. There are number of white papers, marketing documents, and product pages that provide more detailed information. Click the ‘Learn More’ link beside each feature for additional available information.

Automated Service Level Management
Provides an automation framework for batch SLA management, including service goals, reporting and automated actions to ensure SLAs are met. Learn More
Automated MSU Reductions and MLC Savings
Automatically monitors R4HA usage and reduces MSU consumption in order to lower MLC monthly software charges when sub-capacity pricing is used. Reduced MSU consumption with ThruPut Manager is achieved through constraining and deferring workload, rather than manipulating cap levels. The potential for MSU reduction and MLC savings with ThruPut Manager can be significantly greater than with the capping products. Learn More
Workload Distribution/Balancing
Dynamic initiators automatically control batch load and distribution to prevent over-initiation and improve batch throughput. Operations are more controlled and efficient. Learn More
Workload Prioritization & Escalation
Automatically re-orders the batch queue ensuring that the most important workload is selected first and is progressively escalated as SLAs become more critical, ensuring that important workloads get done. Learn More
Workload Demand Constraint
Automatically constrains batch demand as peaks in the R4HA approach the cap in order to lower MSU consumption across LPAR Groups by an average of 10%. Learn More
“Safe Capping/Soft Hammer” Approach
Enables the datacenter to avoid the negative effects of “hitting the wall” when R4HA caps are in place. Automatically reduces demand in advance of the cap; constrains demand during the capping period(s) and automatically restores workload to normal operations once the cap has passed. Learn More
Automated Production Control Services for CA 7 Workload Automation
Automatically adjusts real-time execution to manage critical path and due-out times and meet production SLAs in datacenters using CA 7 Workload Automation. Learn More
Datacenter Standards Management
Automatically assigns job parameters to conform to datacenter standards, including job class, priority, job name, account, SYSOUT parameters, WLM service class, and the scheduling environment. Replaces Mellon Mods and many in house JES2 user mods and exits. Learn More
Job Resource Analysis
All jobs are analyzed at submission to determine their submission standards and resource requirements in order to facilitate automated batch management and workload control. Learn More
Job Routing Management
Automatically determines resource dependencies (e.g., licensed software, DBMS region, etc.) ensuring that jobs run only where and when the specific resources are available. No user JCL changes are required. Learn More
Dataset Contention Management
Eliminates dataset conflicts and ensures higher priority workload gets first access by detecting and resolving dataset contention. Learn More
Virtual Volume Staging and HSM Recall
Performs essential setup requirements while jobs are waiting in the queue. Learn More
Enhanced User Controls
Dependent job control, date/time based job selection, and enhanced SDSF displays provide users with additional job control and status info.
Customer Support
Customers receive world class technical support with proactive planning and real time 24/7 assistance. Learn More
