Your organization has invested an enormous amount of time and money in building your mission-critical mainframe system. Over the last many years, you’ve also transformed your network to the industry standard TCP/IP environment. But despite the critical nature of TCP/IP to your mainframe operation, you’ve never been able to peer inside and monitor the status, be alerted of a problem, or even look back historically. Until now.
With illustro’s AUTOMON/TCPIP product, you can finally See What You’ve Been MissingTM.
AUTOMON/TCPIP delivers all the functions you need to have a comprehensive look at what’s happening in your mainframe TCP/IP systems, both on-demand or historically with AUTOMON/TCPIP’s exclusive Retrospect™ feature.
As the first company to pioneer and release AJAX capabilities for mainframes, illustro has developed AUTOMON/TCPIP from the ground up with a 100% Web-based AJAX interface, bringing a rich, Windows application user experience that anyone can use. Even non-mainframers such as your generic network support team will be able to use the natural, simple interface. And all functions are available from any standard Web browser.
AUTOMON/TCPIP is a more powerful than ever with the new Advisor feature. Do you know if your TCP/IP system is performing up to standards? With Advisor, AUTOMON/TCPIP records all of your TCP/IP activity over a selected timeframe and determines what its "normal" activity patterns are. It uses this knowledge to set AUTOMON/TCPIP Alerts to notify you when performance or activity deviates from the norm. Without any information provided on your part, AUTOMON/TCPIP can tell you about potential issues in your system!
You know well that Internet addresses (IPv4 addresses) are rapidly being exhausted, leaving networks everywhere with constraint on expansion and new capabilities. The Internet community has been hard at work to redefine the architecture and now, with IPv6 addresses, this limitation is limited. But your chosen software product have to support this new environment, and AUTOMON/TCPIP is fully IPv6 ready and able, including full support to monitor and trace IPv4 or IPv6 addresses, even with support for compressed addresses.
You've tried everything through the years to keep your critical TCP/IP systems up and running. AUTOMON/TCPIP’s features and revolutionary interface ensures you can finally manage one of your most important sub-systems without so much pain and agony.
It takes less than 1 hour to install and have real data at your fingertips. Come out of the dark TODAY!

The heart of the AUTOMON/TCPIP interface is the Dashboard where an overview of all TCP/IP activity in your system is constantly refreshed. The AUTOMON/TCPIP Dashboard gives you an overview of all activity in your network, including full support for all hardware interfaces, applications, protocols, connections and hosts. All of this data is available in both table and chart form. Using the AJAX/Web interface, you can click on any specific component to drill down to more detailed information.
AJAX technology allows for updates to be retrieved on demand in the background meaning AUTOMON/TCPIP is always working for you. Using the innovative Retrospect feature, you can request data from another date and time in the archive if you need to look back to a particular period of time to review the activity or to troubleshoot a past problem.
AUTOMON/TCPIP runs natively on your mainframe system in any partition, static or dynamic. No additional software is needed or is installed on the PC. Full support is included for all TCP/IP stacks, whether licensed from IBM, Barnard Software, or Connectivity Systems, or even if used in combination. Full support is available for IPv4 or IPv6 or even a mixed environment.
AUTOMON/TCPIP supports the RACROUTE standard interface so you can utilize any security product including BIM-Alert and CA-Top Secret. If there is no external security manager installed, AUTOMON/TCPIP provides a basic security management facility.
AUTOMON/TCPIP's rich web-based interface is based entirely on industry-standard AJAX technology. AJAX provides a Windows-application like environment complete with drag-and-drop capabilities, context-sensitive menus and more—all from any standard Web Browser. AUTOMON/TCPIP takes full advantage of this exciting open standard, improving response time and usability, and allowing non-mainframe personnel to feel comfortable using the software.
AUTOMON/TCPIP works hard to keep you informed. The product features a robust Alert interface allowing you to set criteria to be notified of specific events in your AUTOMON/TCPIP system. Using AJAX, the Alert feature works in the background, dynamically notifying you visually when a threshold is reached. You can optionally set up an email notification for an event as well to keep you abreast of what's happening.
Run AUTOMON/TCPIP in Advisor Mode to analyze traffic on your TCP/IP system. Advisor will determine what is normal behavior and automatically create Alert conditions to let you know when your system is NOT behaving normally.
Using z/IPUtil, create a report with any combination of captured data fields, in any order, complete with subtotal and sorting abilities. Rather than create "canned" reports which may be too limiting, AUTOMON/TCPIP gives you the ability to report on whatever you need, with simple, easy to understand "select" type statements in the JCL.
Need more detailed data of your network traffic? Using AUTOMON/TCPIP’s integrated Packet Trace facility, you can start, stop and view a packet trace directly from the AJAX/Web interface. And the data is fully formatted including breaking out all network headers, color coded by protocol--even giving you the ability to translate the data into ASCII or EBCDIC. You can also print the trace either to a printer attached to your PC, or through POWER on the VSE system. You can even export and open a trace in Wireshark!
AUTOMON/TCPIP provides one place for the full management of your TCP/IP environment. With the integrated Command Interface, you can issue commands directly to the TCP/IP partitions and receive the responses directly in the AJAX/Web Interface. A scrollable console log is kept for the duration of your session.
AUTOMON/TCPIP includes a new Message Notification Bar at the top of the screen, next to the Alert Notification Bar, so you can tell at a glance on the AUTOMON/TCPIP Dashboard if there are new messages that have been generated that may need your attention. Instead of monitoring the mainframe console, you can see all messages from either TCP/IP or AUTOMON for one place to go to for managing your TCP/IP system.
