The z/Transaction Processing Facility (z/TPF) is an IBM operating system that is designed for processing of high volumes of transactions from large numbers of concurrent users at a very fast rate (with very fast response times). z/TPF is used in many business enterprises that require this level of processing power, including but not limited to airlines, railways, banks and hotels.
z/TPF can easily process tens of thousands of transactions per second online, and ensures highly reliable, continuous (24x7) across large, geographically dispersed networks.
TPF Software is a world leader in providing development tools for z/TPF. These include:
- The zTPFGI Suite
zTPFGI provides a graphical interface for managing source, editing code, building, loading to a system, testing and debugging z/TPF application.
zAutomation is a resource (VPARS) manager. It does this by dynamically bringing up and allocating VPARS as needed and by putting to sleep VPARS that are not being used.
- DF Explorer
DF Explorer is a graphical tool for browsing TPFDF. One can browse, add, remove or modify LRECS.
- zTREX (Transaction Recording and EXamination for z/TPF)
zTREX is a performance analysis tool. It collects memory, I/O and program usage data at the transaction, ECB, Program and File levels. The collected data can be analyzed, compared and reported on using the intuitive graphical interface.
- zQDC (Quality Data Collection for z/TPF)
zQDC streamlines Quality Assurance testing by allowing the QA team to run only the scripts that include the test programs; saving CPU consumption and time.
- zRTF (Regression Test Facility for z/TPF)
zRTF is a regression test tool. The impact of proposed changes can be tested on z/TPF before the changes are made production.
- zTTFS (TPF to TPF Function Server for z/TPF and TPF)
- zTTFS is a connectivity manager that provides access to remote resources and allows limited resources to be efficiently shared between multiple programmers.
