Implement checkpoint and commit logic in batch Db2®, IMS, and VSAM application programs – with no application changes – to reduce costs and ensure quicker restarts.

Balancing the optimal number of checkpoints has never been easier

If a batch job fails, you typically need to restart it from the beginning – increasing processing time. BMC Application Restart Control implements intelligent checkpoint and commit logic so that you can restart from the latest checkpoint and finish batch jobs on time. BMC Application Restart Control:

  • Optimizes checkpoints and commits so that you no longer waste time and resources on unnecessary commits
  • Chooses the appropriate checkpoint for restarting failed batch jobs, eliminating the time that would be required if the job had to be restarted from the beginning
  • Enables you to determine the best balance between performance, restart time, and checkpoint overhead by controlling the checkpoint frequency outside the application
