NIM TP Monitor

 

 

 

Simple, dynamic system management.

 

NIM offers maximum benefits to organizations using:

  • NATURAL 4GL
  • ADABAS DBMS or VSAM
  • z/OS, MSP EX or similar
  • VTAM,
  • JES2 or JES3
  • and wish to avoid using a cumbersome general purpose TP monitor.

NIM is designed to make full use of the sub-tasking and memory management capabilities of z/OS, whilst interposing a minimum of activity between NATURAL, VTAM and ADABAS.

NIM establishes a new OS subtask for each user, allocating a unique address range in NIM's virtual address space. Therefore each user is independent and any user sub-task essentially isolating each user and can't affect other users. By using only the documented z/OS interfaces, NIM remains transportable through OS upgrades. NIM does not need to run as an authorized program (but can), so protected areas of memory are not threatened.

NIM advantages:

Reduced resource overhead:

NIM will consume between 1% to 5% of the CPU used by NATURAL sessions.

Minimal support required:

Typically no dedicated support responsibility is required.

Ease of Use:

NIM's logical and convenient DBA interface means simple installation, minimum training and quick response to environment changes.

System Performance:

NIM's powerful monitoring and control facilities provide an opportunity for system tuning and the potential to improve resource utilization and cut response times.

Stability:

An elegant and logical architecture has resulted in an exceedingly stable, low maintenance product.

Economics:

The value of NIM in the areas of processing efficiency and reduced support costs guarantees return on investment within a brief period.
