zDVI is a simple-to-use, web-based GUI that improves efficiency when analyzing dumps. It enables programmers to quickly and effectively view and assess dump information with only a few steps.
In z/OS, the available dump viewing tools are menudriven tools that lack comprehensive facilities for dump analysis, like easy navigation, user-friendliness and the ability to browse the contents of dumps swiftly. Such tools also require programmers to memorize long commands and sub-commands for accessing dump information in z/OS systems. This lack of user-friendliness or fast browsing
capabilities make fast dump analysis and early detection of problems difficult.
zDVI overcomes these problems by combining all the functionalities of a user-friendly, web-based GUI with an already familiar command interface. This greatly improves user experience, increases efficiency and helps programmers to optimize their productivity. zDVI allows programmers to visualize dump data in an organized way, making navigation, and thus problem detection, extremely easy. This, in turn, enables programmers to spend more of their time on the coding and testing aspects of application development.
Easily Customizable & Intuitive to Use
zDVI (z/OS Dump Viewer) is fully customizable for IPCS, and is easy to learn and implement. Industry-Familiar Command Interface The built-in command interface gives a comfortable feel for skilled programmers who are already familiar with analyzing dumps via the command interface; while the simple-to-use GUI also makes browsing and analyzing dumps easy for new programmers.
Quick Analysis & Time Saving
Proper categorization and visualization of dumps on a graphical user interface leads to shorter times in problem resolution and results in significant timesavings for programmers. This has the potential to greatly reduce the company’s expenditure.
zDVI allows dumps to be organized into logical groups. This means that programmers are provided with an easy way to access, view and analyze critical dumps in z/OS systems. All these advanced and enriching features make zDVI an excellent, user-friendly graphical interface for quick and reliable dump analysis within the z/OS environment.
