Mainframe Systems Performance and Availability Management
Optimize z/OS Systems performance management using AI-driven analytics to proactively monitor and manage your z/OS environment, prevent disruptions, reduce costs, and preserve the reliability and availability that mainframes are known for.
Optimize z/OS Mainframe Systems Management with Availability Intelligence
Through RMF and SMF, z/OS offers a richer source of infrastructure measurement data than any other computing platform. However, the potential to use this wealth of information to prevent service disruptions remains vastly underutilized. This data cannot simply be interpreted without the right intelligence.
IntelliMagic Vision enhances the RMF data and applies its built-in knowledge to understand how the z/OS architecture handles your workloads. This helps you tune z/OS to improve performance and protect availability, and can also help tuning your processor configuration to increase the MIPS you get out of your mainframe hardware.
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.
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.
Advanced 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.
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.
