Operlog Tools


z/OS Log Stream Handling

Manage Mainframe Log Streams at a Glance

The z/OS operating system generates several million messages each day, ranging from simple informative texts and user registration notices through to essential error messages. In this context, Operlog data, a special log stream format, plays a key role. Administrators can testify to how much time it takes to work with this format and the special know-know it requires. The Operlog Tools from Beta Systems provide you with an invaluable application for easy access to relevant information.


Fast and sophisticated search and display functions


Simple access to Operlog data via JCL scripts


Monitored by a security system (RACF, TOP-SECRET, ACF2 ...)


Secure long-term archiving

Retrieving Operlog data fast and with ease

Finding and analyzing Operlog data no longer requires you to utilize two separate tools, because a unified interface facilitates central information access.

Operlog Manager significantly simplifies the way users handle Operlog data. This allows administrators to determine the cause of a fault faster than ever.

Rapid error analysis thanks to detailed data access

Operlog Tools offers powerful functions for analyzing online and archived data inventory via a simple-to-use interface. This, for instance, allows companies to evaluate serious production errors.

As an additional advantage, useful selection and filter criteria can be defined on a case-by-case basis. If so desired, even team colleagues can access these filters, providing all contributing parties with a unified case view

Narrowing down root causes

In general, when troubleshooting an error, individual suspicious messages, message parts or jobs are known. However, there is one major unknown: What happened right before or after this ‘known event’?

The Operlog Tools provide you with an adequate message selection for your analysis by allowing you to define a time frame in seconds; messages that occurred before and after the event will be shown for this interval. This unique function in particular simplifies the task of analyzing errors.

How you stand to benefit from Operlog Tools

The Operlog Tools product facilitates fast, reliable and convenient identification and retrieval of relevant log information.

Functions for viewing events that occurred just before or after an event allow you to rapidly find desired information.

The dedicated batch interface of the Operlog Manager furthermore supports Operlog data access via custom JCL scripts.

Moreover, Operlog data can be archived in a loss-free manner and viewed at any time.
