Ensure Sufficient Capacity & Consistent Performance for IBM zEDC
One challenge many mainframe sites experience with their legacy SMF reporting is keeping up with emerging technologies. IBM’s z Enterprise Data Compression (zEDC) is one of those emerging technologies that represent a new component in your infrastructure that must be properly managed.
IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS Systems provides the visibility you need to effectively manage zEDC (along with all the other critical aspects of your z/OS infrastructure). With this solution, you’ll be able to:
- Ensure sufficient capacity and consistent performance
- Access flexible drilldowns to see data at various levels
- Visualize a comprehensive set of reports to effectively manage performance
Monitor zEDC Usage & Optimize Performance
zEDC hardware compression has numerous benefits:
- Relatively straightforward and inexpensive to implement
- Can be leveraged by numerous widely used access methods and products
- Reduces disk storage requirements and I/O elapsed times
- Minimal CPU cost since almost all the processing is offloaded to the hardware.
However, without proper visibility and management, these benefits can largely be lost. In addition to card utilizations, IntelliMagic Vision provides a comprehensive set of reports including compression ratios, service and queue times, and request rates and throughput. And using the highly flexible drill-down capabilities of IntelliMagic Vision, this data can be viewed at the processor, system, card, or address space level.
