View and control users logged onto our access and control products with the GoPlex™ user-friendly, full-screen interface. This solution helps you manage MultSess, NC-Access and NCI/XF. GoPlex allows you to effectively manage multiple copies of these solutions using a single point of control. It’s an easy way for you to see who is logged on, what products are running and the systems being accessed.
With GoPlex, you can:
Gain availability of MultSess, NC-Access or NCI/XF anytime of the day by exploiting the IBM Parallel Sysplex environment. In a Parallel Sysplex, multiple copies of MultSess, NC-Access or NCI/XF function together to provide one large and robust facility, with copies spread over several computers or different sites.
Assign a common name to multiple copies of an application by starting MultSess, NC-Access and NCI/XF as VTAM generic resources. Only one name is needed by end users to log on, even with multiple VTAM definitions. Providing users have 'LOGAPPLED' (Automatic) logon configured, logon processing finds a corresponding product that is up and running automatically, if their normal copy is unavailable.
Gain a simple method of increasing processing capacity within the Parallel Sysplex environment. This allows levels of hardware and software to be mixed and new systems to be added dynamically due to the building block nature of Parallel Sysplex processing. With GoPlex, you can extend this architecture to your MultSess, NC-Access or NCI/XF applications and maximize these benefits.
You’ll have full capabilities to disconnect, force off or send messages to individual users with GoPlex. System level commands, such as shutdown or application refresh, can be issued. GoPlex also allows a tiered level of admin control.
Keep costs to a minimum by protecting your OS/390 application investments and maintaining use of large system data-processing skills without re-education. You can also manage a large number of systems more easily than comparable multi-system environments.
