Automatic Restart Manager (ARM) is a z/OS recovery function intended to help improve availability by providing fast, efficient restarts of critical applications after a failure. The failure could be the result of an abend, task termination, address space termination, or system termination.
ARM can automatically restart a batch job or started task (STC) or issue MVS commands as needed to restore the application to service. Through the use of ARM, you can reduce the mean time to recovery after a failure. Even installations with sophisticated automation packages can derive benefit from ARM.
In this session, the speaker provides an overview of ARM, its use and configuration.
