z/OS Systems Management Software – 1 March 2011
Phoenix Software International New Product Announcement - zHISR
As the UK
Phoenix Software International,
are pleased to include the
solution within their product portfolio. Michael Moss, CEO of
Value-4IT states, “this new product addition from Phoenix Software
International further demonstrates their commitment to deliver
cost-efficient high-function products for the IBM zSeries Mainframe
platform. This continuing commitment to TCO reduction demonstrated
by Phoenix Software International is clearly aligned to the
Value-4IT mission of perpetually lowering TCO with fair software
pricing and a demonstrable short-term ROI”.
MIPS reduction and optimization for any IT platform has demonstrable
and obvious benefits, reducing TCO and delivering more consistent
and predictable performance for all business applications. Michael
Moss further states, “as a Mission Critical platform, the IBM
zSeries Mainframe delivers a high performance, function rich and
secure environment, but just as any other IT resource, a modicum of
performance tuning can often go a long way! zHISR provides a
cost-efficient solution for all IBM Mainframe customers alike,
whether big or small, safeguarding optimized MIPS usage, by
identifying hot spots of inefficient code”.
zHISR is a new product that uses data created
by z/OS Hardware Instrumentation Services (HIS) to produce hot spot
analysis reports. These reports can be used to help tune
applications by locating the specific sections of code that are the
biggest CPU consumers. This product can assist many zSeries
Mainframe technicians, including Software Developers, Performance
Analysts and System Programmers, et al.
zHISR includes a z/OS UNIX file system
interface for navigating, browsing and deleting files. Programmers
can use zHISR to start or stop a HIS data collection event or view
the status of a current or prior run. If zIIP specialty engines are
available and zHISR is APF authorized, nearly all of the CPU
processing used by zHISR is redirected to a zIIP.
Fred Hoschett, President of Phoenix Software International states,
“Our company and products are built on the principle that software
should be resource-efficient, making minimal demands on existing
hardware resources. It is fitting that we are now helping others
write more efficient code with this new entry in the Phoenix
Software International product line. And it is consistent with our
philosophy that zHISR itself runs efficiently and inexpensively”.
