Rocket® Zeke Agents

Zeke Agents allow scheduling on distributed platforms

For extending the power of Zeke to the enterprise

Schedule on Distributed Platforms from Zeke

Zeke Agents allow scheduling on distributed platforms from the Zeke mainframe scheduler. Jobs that run on platforms such as UNIX®, Microsoft Windows, and AS/400 platforms would be defined, managed, and controlled from Zeke — just like mainframe jobs. This allows the capability for leveraging existing Zeke skill sets and insulates the need to be a platform expert by focusing on scheduling tasks.

Extend traditional mainframe scheduling capabilities

Zeke Agents extend traditional mainframe scheduling capabilities to distributed platforms while retaining a mainframe-centric control point. You leverage existing Zeke skill sets, and eliminate the requirement for multiple platform expertise.

Using ASG-Zeke Agents you achieve a single, integrated workload management solution across your heterogeneous environment, and can define, schedule, execute, monitor, and manage batch workload and software changes using the same methodology – regardless of the vagaries of the target platform. In addition to enabling control and monitoring from any Zeke manager, Zeke Agents allow users to issue commands back to the Zeke manager to execute work on other agent machines. This bi-directional line of communication allows users to build extremely flexible job applications.

Zeke Agents provide:
Cross-platform automation
Platform support: IBM AIX, HP-UX, SUN Solaris/SUN OS, DEC UNIX, Windows, and AS/400
Workload balancing functionality
All workload controlled from Zeke “Scheduleview”
TCP/IP and SNA connectivity
