The rapid growth in the size and complexity of today's information system networks highlights the importance of automation and remote system operation in managing these networks. Version 2 Release 2 of the NetView® program provides improved facilities in these two areas to assist enterprises in consolidating their operations staff in central locations and managing their information systems more efficiently and reliably. This paper describes the Systems Network Architecture (SNA) framework for remote system operation and the NetView remote operations platform, including the LU 6.2 data transport mechanisms and related management services applications. Extensions to the NetView automation platform that permit automation based directly on the receipt of SNA alerts or other structured data are described. In addition, enhancements that improve the performance, usability, and functional capabilities of the NetView automation table are discussed.
