IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS
Eliminate Risks, Reduce Costs, and Close Your Skills Gap
Most RMF/SMF data analysis involves static reports that are difficult and expensive to maintain, require years to learn proficiently, and create expertise silos amongst teams.
IntelliMagic Vision’s customizable reports and unprecedented depth of built-in z/OS intelligence allow analysts to identify unseen risks, tune workloads for significant cost savings, multiply the impact of experts, and accelerate training and effectiveness of new staff.
End-to-End Infrastructure Analytics for z/OS Performance and Capacity Planning

IntelliMagic Vision enables performance analysts to manage and optimize their z/OS CICS transactions more effectively and efficiently, as well as proactively assess the health of their CICS regions.
Virtual Tape Performance Management
Proactively Manage Virtual and Physical Tape Environments
IntelliMagic Vision enables performance analysts to manage and optimize their z/OS Virtual Tape environments more effectively and efficiently.
Disk & Replication Performance Management
Automatically Detect DASD Performance Risks & Quickly Resolve Issues
IntelliMagic Vision enables performance analysts to manage and optimize their z/OS Disk and Replication environment more effectively and efficiently.
MQ Performance Management
Optimize and Analyze MQ Activity and Performance
IntelliMagic Vision enables performance analysts to manage and optimize their z/OS MQ configurations and activity more effectively and efficiently, as well as proactively assess the health of their queue managers.
z/OS Network Performance Management
Automatically Monitor Mainframe Network Security and Protect Your Data
IntelliMagic Vision automatically generates GUI-based, interactive, IBM best-practice compliant rated reports that proactively identify areas that indicate potential upcoming risk to TCP/IP health, performance, and security.
WebSphere Performance Management
Track Response Time and Resource Consumption of WebSphere Transactions
IntelliMagic Vision supports the WebSphere Application Server for z/OS transaction logging records (SMF 120 subtype 9), enabling you to track transaction response time and resource consumption.
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
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.
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 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.
