What's new in CSL-WAVE Version 3.2
Virtual to Real Memory Ratio Drill-down
A new drill-down view which displays the usage of virtual memory in the z/VM System in more detail.
The window displays the amount of physical memory available, the amount of virtual memory used and the ratio between them in a graphical, easy to read and intuitive fashion.
The windows also provides a graphical representation of the usage of virtual memory in the z/VM System (Guest memory, VDisk usage, etc,) and the distribution across z/VM Guests.
Graphical Linux Performance View
This view replaces the previous guest “status” view and provides a graphical representation of the output from the “top” Linux command.
The display provides a graphical representation of CPU, memory and swap usage as reported by the Linux guest itself.
The window also displays a list of all active processes in a fully sort-able table
Bare-Metal Installation support
A new, wizard like, interface to configure, launch and track Linux installation on z/VM guests. CSL-WAVE also provide means to define Linux Media repositories for various Linux distributions. When launching the Bare Metal Installation feature on a z/VM Guest, the user only has to specify a few parameters, point to the Linux Installation media and CSL-WAVE will perform all necessary tasks on the z/VM-side in order to launch the installation!
Automatic Guest Classification and z/VM Account Support
CSL-WAVE now contains a repository of z/VM accounts which are used by the managed z/VM Systems. The z/VM Account Manager provides functionality to add, remove and alter z/VM Accounts.
Using Automatic Guest Classification, it is possible to have CSL-WAVE automatically assign meta-data elements to z/VM Guests based on the z/VM account they are assigned to. The classification can occur during initial discovery, or dynamically, when the periodic tasks discover a change. It is also possible to trigger a change in the account if the project to which the guest belongs changes.
CSL-WAVE User Profiles, LDAP Integration and Kerberos Support
CSL-WAVE now provides a deeper integration with Active directory. It is possible to have the scope and permissions sets assigned to users based on the Active Directory groups to which the user belongs. Also, it is now possible to use Kerberos authentication as a single-signon solution.
Various enhancements and performance improvements
Granular control over Attention Required definitions – The CSL-WAVE administrator can specify a default severity for any Attention Required entry type, as well as ignoring it completely.
WAVE/VM Workunit elimination – The mechanism through which CSL-WAVE manages Directory Manager generated workunits has changed. It is no longer possible to view these workunits in a dedicated viewer, but rather through the COR output of the requests which generated them.
Display Effective Scope/Permissions – A new display that can be used to view the current user’s effective scope and permission sets, including any potential conflicts.
New CSL-WAVE Parameters - Control sampling intervals for Live Guest Relocation, and other BTS sampling intervals.
- Overall preformance improvments and higher lever of maintenance.
