Proactively Detect Coupling Facility Risk & Optimize Performance

    IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS Systems leverages knowledge about the Coupling Facility to determine how the structures are performing and how the software can alert you to underlying problems that you might not even know exist.

    Effectively Manage and Tune Coupling Facility Performance & Health

    The Coupling Facility is used by most z/OS components and major applications, so any delays in the Coupling Facility or CF links will impact just about any aspect of the performance of the mainframe.

    IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS automatically generates GUI-based, interactive, rated reports that proactively identify areas that indicate potential upcoming risk to CF health and performance as well as providing context sensitive drilldowns to investigate and resolve issues.

    Access to historical data and comparisons, global filtering, and intuitive dashboards saves time looking for issues and quickly understanding what the data means.

    With this solution, you’ll be able to:

    • Proactively identify upcoming risks to your Coupling Facility health and performance
    • Save time with quick access and intelligence about important issues
    • Utilize deep analysis & root cause analysis capabilities on every aspect of the Coupling Facility

    Additionally, health and performance ratings based on IBM best practices automatically detect risk in your Coupling Facility and direct you to important issues that may warrant your attention. The interactive Coupling Facility reports/dashboards provide information on the storage usage, link issues, structure response times and cache effectiveness.

    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.
