Fault Management with Abend-AID

Abend-AID is Compuware's mainframe application failure resolution solution.

When an application fails, developers must manually cross-reference pages of recorded application memory information with pages of application code to understand why the failure occurred.

Fault Management with Abend-AID reduces this tedious and time-consuming task, enabling development personnel to tackle higher-priority work assignments.

Abend-AID: The Value of Fault Management

  • Optimize resources by improving the fault-resolution process.
  • Reduce application downtime and time-to-market for new functionality.
  • Ensure application reliability and performance.
  • Achieve appropriate service levels.

Abend-AID: The Benefits of Fault Management for Developers

  • Quickly resolve failures with source-level analysis.
  • Identify errors and verify test results through a directory of all fault activity.
  • View the actual text of a statement causing an error and the contents of its related fields.
  • Clearly display data in storage and data being transferred between programs.
  • Identify field lengths and index values for multi-dimensional tables.
  • View source code for program logic.

Break down IT barriers and solve problems faster

A lack of collaboration and the manual sharing of information can prolong resolution times and increase application backlogs. Compuware helps solve this age-old issue by uniting the tools used to find problems with those used to fix them. Using Strobe or Abend-AID, Operations and QA teams can quickly pinpoint the root cause of a mainframe application performance problem or exception. Operations will initiate a “fix request” right from their dashboard, which automatically gathers the contextual insights about the issue. The request is sent to the Compuware Workbench where Development will have a jump-start on re-creating, debugging and ultimately fixing the problem. Learn more by watching this short video.
