EView/400i Discovery for IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) environments, developed by EView Technology, helps companies manage the tasks associated with Change, Incident, Problem and other IT Service Management disciplines for IBM i (iSeries-AS/400)-based Configuration Items (CIs).
Adding the EView/400i Discovery agent to the Micro Focus Universal Discovery (UD) for Micro Focus Universal Configuration Management Database (UCMDB) enables companies to view the IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) CIs and their inter-relationships with distributed resources. Through seamless integration with the Micro Focus UD, EView/400i Discovery eliminates the need for high-level UCMDB or IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) expertise. This tight integration of Micro Focus and EView solutions provide a comprehensive, accurate, and complete view of your IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) infrastructure. EView/400i Discovery works with the UD to provide insightful visualizations to understand the configuration items (CIs) and easily build an inventory of critical physical and logical entities along with their interrelationships.
This information is then populated in the UCMDB to create a detailed model of your IT environment for service modeling and service impact analysis. Micro Focus UD gives you the power to accurately discover what exists in your IT environment and map how it relates to other IT elements that support your business-critical services. This information is then stored in the UCMDB and made available to other solutions in your IT environment so that everyone in IT can use the same service context. Through this process, EView/400i Discovery collects information about IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) to populate the UCMDB. The discovered information includes Resource and Object information. The highly flexible auto-discovery enables the UCMDB to maintain the most precise and current CI data, providing the enterprise a single point of accuracy for the IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) data.
EView/400i Discovery is intelligently designed for minimal footprint and negligible system resource consumption, the discovery process is flexible and supports the ability to set specific auto-discovery parameters, based on your unique business needs. EView/400i Discovery’s seamless integration with Micro Focus UD provides organizations with an efficient and cost effective way to harness the power of the IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) environment which is a crucial part of a comprehensive enterprise IT strategy.
What is Discovered
With EView/400i Discovery and Micro Focus UD, IT organizationscan now discover specific CIs for inclusion into the UCMDB. The discovered information includes:
UCMDB Discovery Probe:
EView/400i requires appropriate Ethernet hardware on the Discovery probe tocommunicate via TCP/IP. All other hardware requirements are the same as the requirements for Micro Focus UCMDB.
IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) Managed Node:
EView/400i requires the appropriate Ethernet hardware on the iSeries (AS/400) to allowfor TCP/IP communication with the UCMDB probe.In addition, make sure that Discovery probe and AS/400 managed nodes meet the disk space requirements described in detail in the Installation Guide.
On the UCMDB Discovery Probe:
All other software requirements are the same as the requirements for Micro Focus UCMDB.
