ZEN TRACE & SOLVE

ZTS provides an easy, fast, accurate and secure method of locating and resolving problems in both SNA and IP network traffic. Here are just some of the component highlights:
  • A simple menu-driven system for on-line trace definition, management and control
  • Simultaneous capture of multiple IP (v4 and v6) and SNA traces across multiple systems
  • Ability to browse a trace during capture
  • Trace import and export for CTRACE, libpcap, OSAENTA as well as ZTS traces
  • PC Client and 3270 interfaces provide easy access for browsing captured traces
  • Easily navigable displays provide both high and low-level trace data views
  • Automatic annotation of data flows using simple terminology and explanations
  • Color highlighting of trace entries likely to have caused a problem
  • Explanations for IP, VTAM and/or 3270 terms, VTAM messages, SNA sense codes, RPL codes and SNA node or session status codes
  • Powerful filtering during trace capture for:
    • IP Versions: IPv4 and/or IPv6
    • Applications: Telnet, FTP, Enterprise Extender, WWW
    • Protocols: UDP, ICMP, TCP, or a numbered protocol
    • Port numbers, and/or IP addresses, and/or Link Names
    • LU to LU, and/or LU to Application, and/or LU to/from the SSCP
  • Special additional formatting and translation support for:
    • TN3270 exchanges
    • Enterprise Extender
    • OSPF
    • GRE and GRE/CASA
    • DLUR/DLUS
  • Recognition of IPsec traffic and IPsec authentication header structure breakdown
  • Special support to 'look inside' encapsulated traces such as EE, GRE, DLUR/DLUS and Line
  • Capture minimal trace records using Wrap Mode – essential when tracing intermittent problems
  • Simple and Advanced search capabilities provide quick location of all types of data
  • Trace printing
  • Supports capture or import, display and interpretation of the following trace types:
    • IP Packet
    • VTAM buffer
    • VTAM Extended (XDT) – traces cross-domain traffic
    • VTAM Internal Trace (VIT)
    • NCP line including frame relay and CSS, transmission group, generalized PIU and scanner interface
    • 3746/900 /950 Trace Import
    • IBM's GTF
    • VTAM Internal
