IBM has announced the OMEGAMON z/OS Management Suite V4.2.0. What exactly is the z/OS Management Suite? Think of it as an integrated offering that includes monitoring for the z/OS operating system, network monitoring, and expanded DASD storage monitoring, all within a single solution.
OMEGAMON XE for z/OS by itself does not really provide much in the way of network information. OMEGAMON XE for z/OS provides DASD, cache, and control unit information, but the available information is largely focused from the perspective of 3390 type devices, etc.
What OMEGAMON z/OS Management Suite V4.2 provides is a way to expand the reach of your core z/OS monitoring to include robust detailed network analysis and more detailed storage information within a single software offering. Technically you could purchase and install OMEGAMON XE for Mainframe Networks and OMEGAMON Storage, in addition to OMEGAMON z/OS. What OMEGAMON z/OS Management Suite V4.2 provides is a way to have all this integrated capability in a single solution.
