    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.
