Halcyon's Performance Analyzer now offers Halcyon customers a portable view of your IBM i (System i, iSeries, AS/400) system performance. The Halcyon Performance Analyzer product has the added bonus feature of viewing your performance data on your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad.

This is the mobile alternative to customers viewing their performance information on desktops or during 'green screen' sessions.

After users enter their system information within the configuration, the new application written by Halcyon for the iPhone will connect to IBM i partitions and display the performance information on the phone’s screen and will automatically refresh the data every minute.

The new app is available from the iTunes store and has been approved by Apple. Any Halcyon customers who use the latest addition of the Performance Analyzer utility or use Halcyon’s “Level 3” or “Level 4” Monitoring and Automation Suites can download the special application free of charge.

Halcyon Performance Analyzer provides accurate and up-to-the-minute performance statistics and trends. Advanced design techniques are utilised so as to reduce the impact on system resources.

Any number of IBM i servers can be monitored – users can monitor each server during different time periods and record performances at different intervals if required.

The software enables information to be displayed in real-time and provides alerts (and appropriate responses) if performance thresholds are breached as well as long-term trend analysis.

The software includes a graphical interface with important performance statistics displayed as graphs and tables, allowing operators to quickly identify resource grabbing jobs or users and either take prompt, corrective action or let the system automatically resolve the situation.

The performance viewer can also be customised with options for colour coding the text and graphical displays to suit their environment.

The report wizard allows operators to build tailored performance or service level reports or adapt the shipped examples.

Customers can also use run-time substitution variables such as date and time when compiling the reports and there is an option to save as HTML documents and publish over the company’s intranet.
