BMC Ships Tool for Mainframe Java Usage

BMC, a provider of data center management tools,  has released MainView for Java Environments, an integrated systems management solution that helps provide insight into how Java is consuming resources and affecting application performance on mainframes.

"The digital economy is breathing new life into the mainframe platform with 80 percent of the world's corporate data residing on mainframes and 91 percent of all new client-facing applications accessing a mainframe," said Bill Miller, president of zSolutions Optimization at BMC. "MainView for Java Environments enables enterprises to manage the bigger, faster demands hitting the mainframe today."

BMC's MainView for Java Environments is an integrated performance management solution that discovers and monitors Java Virtual Machines (JVMs). The solution provides IT operations a holistic view of the environment to discover JVMs and to manage the effect of their resource consumption on application performance. Java can be deployed and managed, helping to unlock Java's potential on the mainframe.

The solution also includes a single graphical console to help users understand the Java applications impact on resources and its effect on the performance of other applications and transactions. The solution also monitors zIIP offloading of applications as well.
