IBM i 7.2 Sighted At The iDoctor
August 5, 2013 Timothy Prickett Morgan
We all know that the next update to the IBM i operating system, release 7.2, is coming to market sometime in 2014. But it may be sooner than we think.
Last week, on August 1, IBM updated its iDoctor for IBM i performance tools, which are used to collect and analyze performance data on Power Systems machines running the grandchild of the venerable OS/400 operating system. And check it out:
This is the first sighting of IBM i 7.2, which is called V7R2M0 in the old-style, OS/400 naming convention inside of the iDoctor tool.
By the way, if you don’t have the iDoctor tool, you can get it at this link. This is the same tool that the Rochester Support Center and the Systems and Technology Group Lab Services teams use to try to figure out pesky performance issues on i5/OS and IBM i platforms and as best as I can figure, it is free.
Old Tom Watson helps those who help themselves, I guess.
