Hiperstation for Enterprise Servers enables IS departments to: test server applications without the user interface; test changes to the operating system or subsystems; conduct pre-production load testing; confirm disaster recovery set-up; audit server activity for appropriate access; provide hidden details to help desk and support personnel.

Hiperstation's advanced record, playback, and comparison functions extend your ability to perform comprehensive unit, concurrency, integration, migration, capacity, and performance tests. Hiperstation allows you to create test cases for all VTAM® applications, including IMS™/DC, CICS®, TSO, IDMS™/DC, and Model 204. These applications may be written in any programming language.

Hiperstation optionally uses IBM®'s REXX as a script language. This script language facility significantly extends the capabilities of Hiperstation's playback in both the on-line and batch environments. Using the REXX language within a Hiperstation script allows you to extend your testing scope with an advanced programming language.

Hiperstation's Global Record and Unattended Playback features provide unparalleled capabilities for creating valid application performance test scenarios. Global Record creates a realistic sample of system activity by recording one or more terminals over a combination of on-line systems. Unattended Playback executes transactions in an on-line region.
