Highlights of CLEVER TCP/IP®
SysPoint provides a centralized overview of network activity with information on hosts, alerts, stack workload,
channel activity, connections, ports, devices, buffers, and more.
The Alert Report provides real-time and near-time diagnostic information and generates alerts from monitoring the
CSM Buffer, Link, Port, Session, Critical Resource Availability, and Critical Resource Performance.
LinkView Channel Processor Monitoring shows the traffic and status of channel-attached processors and links
associated with each TCP/IP address space.
Connect Expert conveys TCP and UDP status, from the monitoring of listener ports and active sockets to the
connectivity and session detail for each TCP/IP session.
Enterprise Extender Expert displays workload and throughput data for all EE assigned ports and gives access to
Thru24 EE Summary/Detail.
StackView includes a sortable table, providing CPU and other stack usage data for TCP/IP or socket-attached
application-associated address spaces. It allows the user to view CPU and other stack activities for ports having
active TCP/IP sessions.
Real-Time Monitoring provides a continuous, interactive awareness of network response times and availability for
critical resources that require communication to/from z/OS-based Business Services, including critical user communities,
MQ servers, middleware DB servers, and troublesome printers. Additional capabilities monitor and view Telnet sessions,
CSM and VTAM buffer usage, and performance of key routing interfaces such as CIPs and OSA Express.
SessionLog Expert provides a user friendly way to view and filter current and recent FTP, Telnet, and TCP-based
Business Service session activity.
Workload and Performance reports include Thru99 EE history reports and Thru99 link history reports. Expert
reports provide global and detailed views of FTP, Telnet, and other TCP-based Business Services activity. Buffer
reports provide CSM and VTAM buffer history. TraceRoute reports show results of the automatically collected
TraceRte data when defined critical resource thresholds are exceeded. Real-time reports provide network response
times, workload and traffic patterns for TCP/IP hosts, real-time workload and network performance trending, and EE
UDP data.
CLEVER TCP/IP Version 7.1 (July 2004) introduces these new features:
Enhanced CSM and VTAM buffer pool monitoring provides more comprehensive views of total, individual, private,
and fixed buffer pool usage with new alerts for total CSM, VTAM CSA, and VTAM storage usage.
3270-based Batch Reports provide scheduled, management service level reporting.
Support for Internet-Unit (I-Unit), a customizable packet size for critical resource monitoring, allows specification of the
packet size that best represents average IP traffic size.
Customized SysPoint viewing allows the user to select diagnostic data, alert data, or both. In addition, the
configuration for each of these options can be customized.
