TREETIP: tcVISION’s Enhanced Web Statistics Functionality

by Joseph Brady, Manager of Marketing and Technical Documentation at Treehouse Software, Inc.

tcVISIONv6_Logo

With version 6 of tcVISION (Treehouse Software’s product for transferring information between mainframe data sources and LUW databases and applications), a newly enhanced web statistics functionality and web server have been introduced. Any standard web browser can access this server (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari, etc.).

This valuable feature enables users to oversee data from the tcVISION Manager Monitor, and statistical and operational information from the tcVISION Manager network. The Manager Monitor displays diagrams in a large, scalable window that shows “running” transfers and “not running” processes, and a diagram that shows statistical data.

The following screen shot shows how the tcVISION web statistics can be displayed to the user…

An easy-to-use menu allows complete control of, and access to, all processes within the tcVISION Manager Monitor…

  • “Scripts” shows running processes, completed processes, and not running processes.
  • “Server messages” shows the server messages.
  • “Manager network” shows all Managers of connected Manager Networks.
  • “Statistics” shows a selection of Managers and corresponding scripts from the monitoring database. A selection list with different diagram types is available and a button to save chosen diagrams and their selected settings.
  • “Profiles” shows the profiles of the monitoring database.
  • “Manager” shows the name, the version, the revision and the operating system of the observing Managers.

Request a Free, Online Demo of Treehouse Software’s Mainframe Real-Time and Bidirectional Data Replication / Integration Products

Did you know that Treehouse Software offers online demonstrations of the most complete and flexible portfolio of solutions available anywhere for real-time, bidirectional data replication and integration between mainframe and LUW data sources?

You can see how Treehouse Software’s popular tcACCESS and tcVISION products efficiently and cost-effectively use ETL, CDC, SQL, XML, and SOA technologies for data replication / integration, in an interactive demonstration with our skilled technical experts.

Integrate mainframe data and applications with LUW data sources…

tcACCESS is a comprehensive software solution that enables two-way integration between IBM mainframe systems and client/server, Web and SOA technologies — without the need for mainframe knowledge or programming effort. A proven platform that facilitates SQL-based integration of mainframe data sources and programs into LUW applications, tcACCESS uses industry standards such as SQL, ODBC, JDBC, and .NET. SQL queries to access mainframe data can be easily created using drag and drop techniques — no programming required.

tcACCESS_Diagram01

tcACCESS is a modular software solution. It consists of a base system that can either be implemented as a CICS transaction or as a VTAM application. The base system provides its own communication modules. The heart of the system is the tcACCESS SQL Engine which allows access to mainframe data sources using SQL statements. tcACCESS offers Listener components on the mainframe and on the client, as well as scheduling and security functions. Batch processors automate the information exchange processes between distributed applications.

Enable ETL and bi-directional data replication between mainframe and LUW platforms…

tcVISION allows the exchange of data between heterogeneous databases, from legacy non-relational mainframe sources to standard RDBMSs, in batch or real-time, via CDC (change data capture). With tcVISION, complex replication scenarios can be implemented with ease–including bi-directional “master/master” replication requirements.

tcVISION_simple

tcVISION considerably simplifies mainframe data exchange processes. The structure of the existing mainframe data is analyzed by tcVISION processors, then automatically and natively mapped to the target. The data mapping information is presented in a user-friendly and transparent format – even for users with no mainframe knowledge.

See for yourself, right at your desk…

tcVISION TREETIP: Navigating The Repository Editor

When modeling and mapping a new metadata structure, tcVISION’s powerful Repository Editor is used to define and modify Input and Output Objects. The rich features within the Editor allow users to:

  • import new objects
  • copy or create new objects
  • import metadata for input and/or output objects
  • define target DBMSs
  • specify input and/or output objects for import
  • define DMBS-specific options
  • define target object names
  • replace/supersede existing object metadata

To assist new and even experienced tcVISION users, we’ve put together the following screen shots to give a quick overview of the Repository Editor’s functionality buttons / icons used for setting up modeling and mapping of sources and targets.

Here is an example of what the tcVISION Repository Editor looks like:

TREEHOUSE CUSTOMER UPDATE:

by Chris Rudolph, Senior Technical Representative for Treehouse Software and Joseph Brady, Marketing and Documentation Manager for Treehouse Software

This is a follow-up to our recent Treehouse Software Blog entry “Treehouse Software is Setting Sights on Many New Data Replication Projects”, in which we described a typical customer visit to implement data replication.

Treehouse representatives were on-site at a state government agency to configure tcVISION and set up bulk transfer and change data capture, as well as train the State employees on using and managing tcVISION. In a subsequent discussion with our contacts at the site, they reported that their deadline for delivering a reporting database in Microsoft SQL Server replicated from 63 ADABAS files has been met. They also happily noted that by using tcVISION, the bulk transfer of 60 million ADABAS records into SQL Server completed in only 20 minutes.

We are very pleased to have yet another satisfied customer benefitting from one of Treehouse Software’s mature and proven enterprise software solutions.
