Comprehensive IBM Z Linux Workload Scheduler for z/OS

With Tidal’s z/OS Linux integration, teams can seamlessly orchestrate mainframe job scheduling within their overall business processes, enabling end-to-end management and automation without the need for scripting.

The zLinux agent, installed on the mainframe, acts as a delegate of the Tidal Master and performs various tasks. This fault-tolerant agent possesses extensive capabilities, including:

  • Knowledge of the jobs to be run
  • Time-dependent scheduling
  • APAR support
  • Transmitting back completion status and output
  • Triggering actions in Tidal based on events occurring in mainframe processing
  • Prioritizing critical jobs

Tidal’s z/OS Linux integration and its z-centric agent allows teams to incorporate critical z/OS jobs into their enterprise workflows, benefiting from the advanced automation features and reducing operational expenses.

Tidal offers z-centric capabilities, including support for JCL execution, detailed information about job streams and logs, and integrations with IBM’s subsystems like JES and TSO.

Integrate Process & Resource Management

Using agent lists, you can assign a group of machines to handle a workload. It’s easy to do dynamic load balancing by increasing or decreasing the number of machines doing work. The result – improved resource management and reduced costs.
