IBM IMS™ Connect Extensions for z/OS enhances the manageability of TCP/IP access to IMS through IMS Connect, an integrated function of IMS.
IMS Connect Extensions complements and extends the features of IMS Connect: speeding and simplifying problem determination; dynamically balancing workloads; streamlining performance tuning and customization; and improving the availability and security of IMS Connect.
IMS Connect Extensions does this by providing comprehensive event recording and performance monitoring for IMS Connect, dynamic management of OTMA and Open Database workloads, and additional security features.
IMS Connect Extensions enables centralized management and control of all your IMS Connect systems, including monitoring of MSC physical links and remote IMS Connect systems, from an ISPF operations dialog or Operations Console GUI client.
IMS Connect Extensions provides additional features for IMS Connect clients such as enhanced information in error messages, a password change facility, and extended message translation.
IMS Connect Extensions is branded and distributed internationally by IBM.
