Fault Management

Identify, Resolve and Track Mainframe Application Faults and Abends

Abend-AID, Compuware’s mainframe application failure resolution and fault management solution, enables developers to reduce the tedious and time-consuming task of manually cross-referencing pages of recorded application memory information with pages of application code to understand why an application failure occurred.

Using Abend-AID, developers can:

  • Identify errors and verify test results through a directory of all fault activity
  • View the 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
  • Get richer, more complete insight into mainframe issues through an integration with Syncsort Ironstream® including a Splunk® app to help with analysis

The Value of Abend-AID

  • Reduce the risk in changing critical mainframe applications
  • Ensure mainframe application reliability and quality
  • Detect errors earlier during development, allowing for a DevOps “shift left
  • Achieve service level agreements and MIPS reduction
  • Reduce failure resolution time and negative impact on business due to backend mainframe errors
  • Reduce developmentdowntime and time-to-market for new functionality
  • Quickly resolve application failures with source-level analysis
