z/OS Mainframe Application Output Routing and Management

Dynamically remove print overhead and hard-coded print device limitations from mainframe 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 Mainframe z/OS Applications

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
