BMC announced MainView for Java Environments. This integrated systems management solution provides complete insight into how Java is consuming resources and affecting application performance on the modern mainframe.

"Java on the mainframe is being used to develop and deploy new applications faster and more economically to meet dynamically changing digital business needs and to take advantage of widely available programming skills" according to Tim Grieser, Program VP, Enterprise System Management Software, IDC. "However since Java manages its own resources it can consume excessive amounts of processor time and memory resources leading to performance or availability problems if not proactively managed. BMC offers a solution in it's MainView for Java Environments which monitors z/OS Java runtime environments and provides a consolidated view of all resources being consumed to help identify and manage performance issues before they impact end users."

Using BMC's MainView for Java Environments solution, Java can be deployed and managed with confidence, helping to unlock Java's potential on the mainframe. BMC's MainView for Java Environments is an integrated performance management solution that discovers and monitors JVMs. It provides a single graphical console to quickly understand the Java applications impact on resources and its affect on the performance of other applications and transactions. The solution helps to improve application performance and ensures availability while reducing Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) and lowering Monthly License Charges (MLC) by monitoring zIIP offloading. All of which increases productivity, lowers costs and helps IT quickly respond to the demands of the business.

"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 is a testament to BMC's investment in transforming the mainframe for digital business – enabling enterprises to manage the bigger, faster demands hitting the mainframe today – and preparing them for the unknown demands of tomorrow."

To aid in the identification of JVMs in the mainframe environment, BMC is providing a limited time trial of BMC's MainView for Java Environments solution to existing MainView customers. The trial will allow enterprises to highlight the scope and magnitude of JVM instances and their significant impact on the performance and availability of other applications.
