Included with the base Torch Capacity Manager are the following data sources:
Torch/SIP reduces SIP data. It reads one or more SIP cycles and produces the file SIP INTERVAL as an output.
Torch/MFD gathers statistics and produces reports related to mass storage utilization. It can also be used to feed Computer Associates, Inc.’s, MICS product. At this time, the Torch/MFD data is not integrated into the Torch performance database and cannot be reported through Torch/Report.
Torch/STAR extracts and reports statistics from Formula Consultant’s Star 1100 Tape Management System. It can be used to feed Computer Associates, Inc.’s MICS product. Torch/Star data is not integrated into the Torch performance database and cannot be reported through Torch/Report.
The Torch Capacity Manager Interface Agents provide additional data to be integrated into the Torch performance database. Torch Interface Agents require Torch Capacity Manager to operate. The Interface Agents are:
Torch/IO reduces I/O Trace data. Torch/IO reads an I/O Trace tape and produces an IOT event file, IOT EVENT. The IOT EVENT file contains a detailed summary of the I/O Trace data from which Torch/IO produces a set of I/O distribution reports.
Torch/Alog reduces Master Log File (MLF) or system log data. Torch/Alog is used to reduce ASCII Log cycles.
Torch/TPM reduces TIP Transaction Performance Monitor (TPM) audit trails and High Volume Statistics (HVSTATS) data.
Torch/Mapper reduces MAPPER data. Data from multiple MAPPER systems can be merged into the same Torch database.
