z/OS Application Output Routing and Management
Dynamically remove print overhead and hard-coded print device limitations from TP monitors and applications such as CICS, IMS and DB2, without reprogramming or changing the application, with the OMC-VNI Virtual Network Interface.
Extend Flexible Output Management to z/OS Applications with OMC-VNI
The OMC-VNI Virtual Network Interface extends comprehensive print management to legacy applications by automatically routing transaction and application output destined for a specific print device directly to the JES spool for subsequent printing via OMC-PRINT.
Routing transaction output through OMC-VNI frees the transaction from print processing, reducing user wait time and improving response time, transaction speed, and user productivity. Because OMC-VNI utilizes OMC-PRINT’s printer pooling facilities, output destined for a busy device can be automatically rerouted to an alternative device, avoiding transaction delays.
OMC-PRINT’s comprehensive output control increases user productivity, and time saving error recovery enables users to recover output in the event of printer error, avoiding transaction reruns and lost output.
Through OMC-VNI, legacy application performance can be significantly improved:
- No rewriting applications
- Reduced transaction wait time
- Flexible printer pooling options
- Comprehensive output control
- Time saving error recovery
- Improved response time
- Improved transaction speed
- Increased user productivity
