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. These records provide detailed transaction-level metrics on where the work runs and the nature of the work, including processor consumption, transferred bytes, and response times.

IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS WebSphere Use Cases

  • Ensure service level expectations from the users are met
  • Identify any significant dispatch or queue delays that may occur
  • Track the resource consumption for the WebSphere environment as a whole and for individual clusters or URI’s
  • Compare today with last week or last month, to investigate resource usage trends, e.g. to check whether a new application version has a measurable impact
  • Check the data volume for the transactions, to make sure that application changes did not impact
  • Capacity planning based on long-term trends
