Monitor Mainframe Performance

    Modernize your approach to mainframe performance management by moving away from static reports towards interactive, context-driven analytics.

    Identify cost savings and upcoming availability risks, and train the next generation of z/OS performance analysts.

    End-to-End z/OS Infrastructure Performance and Capacity AIOps

    Protect availability and improve IT operations in your end-to-end z/OS infrastructure with domain specific artificial intelligence and advanced statistical analysis.

    IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS provides great visibility and proactive intelligence for your z/OS infrastructure to help prevent outages, resolve availability and performance issues, optimize your infrastructure, and elevate the effectiveness of your staff.

    IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS unlocks the full potential of SMF and RMF infrastructure measurement data to enhance availability and performance across the z/OS infrastructure, including Systems, CICS, Db2, MQ, Network, WebSphere, Disk & Replication, and Virtual Tape.

    Advanced z/OS Anomaly Detection and Statistical Analysis

    Statistically significant changes in key metrics are highlighted in Change Detection views. Variations that exceed + or – 2 standard deviations between the current day and the prior 30 days are highlighted.

    This can enable you to get an early jump on changes that may have a sustained impact, such as this example of increased CPU consumed by highest dispatching priority System work.

    Intuitive Visibility into SMF Data

    Intuitive Visibility into SMF Data

    In contrast to approaches today that require coding programs or mastering tooling siloed by technology to access various types of SMF data, a common, intuitive user interface eliminates effort spent mining data and instead frees up staff to focus entirely on high-value analysis.

    This single interface used across the entire z/OS platform greatly expedites learning, promotes collaboration, and enhances analytical effectiveness.

    Context Sensitive Drill Downs

    Context sensitive drill downs enable an analyst to identify alternative analytical paths based on the data currently being displayed and quickly investigate each hypothesis with just a few clicks, greatly reducing lost time when exploring what ends up being a “dead-end” path.

    When dealing with massive SMF data volumes, this capability to focus analysis on the desired subset of data becomes especially valuable.

    See for yourself why leading companies are saying “I don’t know how to live without IntelliMagic Vision.” Whether you’re evaluating competitive solutions or trying to solve a problem, we’re happy to help you move forward with your IT initiatives.

    Dynamic zOS Report Customization

    Dynamic Report Customization

    Advanced report customization capabilities facilitate quick ad hoc analysis without requiring programming or complicated steps and enable data to be viewed in the manner best suited to the current inquiry.

    In this example, transaction rate is added to a response time chart to evaluate possible correlation. Numerous intuitive customization options including report type, summarization level, filtering, and interval comparisons.

    Health Insights with Explainable Artificial Intelligence

    Prevent potential risks to availability and performance with built-in artificial intelligence automatically assessing more than 700 key z/OS metrics and using thresholds derived from built-in expert domain knowledge.

    The easily consumable view to the right assesses the overall health of all CICS regions, leveraging user defined CICSGROUPs to enable exceptions from among hundreds of regions to be quickly identified and proactively addressed.

    Customized Mainframe Shared Dashboards

    Customized Shared Dashboards

    Customizable dashboards collect and display at a glance live views of any collection of metrics of interest to you. When shared, they promote collaboration and provide a common truth for an entire organization.

    Users can expand any report and leverage drill down capabilities to pursue further analysis of metrics they find of interest.

    AIOps via SaaS Delivery

    Advantages to adopting a cloud model include rapid implementation (no lead time to install and setup the product locally), minimal setup (only for transmitting SMF data), offloading staff resources required to deal with SMF processing issues or to install product maintenance, and easy access to IntelliMagic consulting services to supplement local skills.
