Overview

The IBM® IMS™ Connect Extensions for z/OS® Operations Console is a plug-in for z/OS Explorer that provides you with additional capabilities beyond the IBM IMS Connect Extensions for z/OS ISPF-based interface. Use the Operations Console to view real-time IMS Connect information, stop and start datastores, suspend and resume routing, and issue IMS Connect WTOR command or IMS Connect z/OS command and IMS type-1 commands.

Features

    Use the IMS™ Connect Extensions as a single point of control for multiple IMS Connect systems. Use the Operations Console to perform the following tasks:
  • Conduct status monitoring of IMS Connect systems
  • Review event statistics for a selected IMS Connect system
  • Monitor and view details of active sessions between IMS Connect and its clients
  • Stop active sessions that may be taking longer than expected to complete
  • Stop and start IMS data stores, ports, and exits
  • Suspend and resume routing to a datastore to drain it of in-progress transactions, typically before IMS shut down
