Abstract

IBM MVS/VM is a good system for creating many virtual machines and different IDs can log on to use the resource concurrently. However, with more and more network traffic and automation programs running to do many process at the same time, it becomes very tricky to send and receive files or waiting for acknowledge back. Since more and more automation programs are running to do either calling JCLs, REXX scripts or green screen navigation to operate some applications on VM, it occurred more and more often that automation failed because lacking the accurate predication waiting time to time out. Therefore, it is critical to have a time demon server on MVS/VM to oversee the network traffic, keep track of it and provide these services to public and ID's console so that end users and automation programs can get forecast information to adjust the waiting time accordingly. Time daemon/server runs on MVS/VM systems. It oversees all the processes network traffic, keeps track of them, analyzes the size of traffic loads, and provides traffic information for users and process to call. Consequently, calls to the time demon will provide end users with information about how long does it take to send or receive files from other IDs or to/from VM/MVS. Also automation programs can call the Time demon object to get the traffic predictions to adjust the necessary waiting time for receiving or sending files as end users does manually. It can also send as a forecast of a program's estimated running time to completion. The time demon will achieve this by constantly running as a background process. It will keep monitoring the flow of requests as well as memory usage. It will keep track of past performance based on similar traffic trends and make predictions based on the current state.
