An IBM Redbooks publication

Abstract

This IBM Redbooks publication introduces the IBM Problem Determination and Deployment Tools for z/OS and OS/390. The tools covered are:

-> IBM Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS Version 1 Release 1
-> IBM Debug Tool for z/OS Version 6 Release 1
-> IBM Debug Tool and Advanced Facilities for z/OS Version 6 Release 1
-> IBM Fault Analyzer for z/OS Version 6 Release 1
-> IBM File Manager for z/OS Version 6 Release 1
-> IBM File Export for z/OS Version 1 Release 1
-> IBM Workload Simulator for z/OS and OS/390 Version 1 Release 1

This comprehensive suite of powerful yet easy-to-use tools helps developers to efficiently build, test, and service applications while minimizing errors and increasing cost-effectiveness. The tools allow users to quickly identify and resolve problems that occur in batch, IMS, DB2, CICS, and UNIX System Services applications.

For each tool, this book provides step-by-step instructions for installation and customization, a detailed discussion of the features and capabilities, and guidance for using the tool in your environment.
