Monitor zEDC and NXU Compression Performance with IntelliMagic Vision
Optimize your performance and compression usage whether using zEDC or with the z15 on-chip nest accelerator (NXU).
Troubleshoot to find IT failures immediately before they become big problems.
Ensure Sufficient Capacity & Consistent Performance for IBM’s zEDC & NXU Usage
IBM’s zEDC hardware compression offers numerous benefits to your z/OS infrastructure, and the z15 provides even greater compression throughput. The on chip z15 and future of processor hardware compression will be transparent for existing applications.
However, without proper visibility and management, these benefits can be lost or underappreciated.
With easy-to-use interactive data navigation, historical reporting, single-click data comparisons and report customizations, and a comprehensive set of zEDC reports for z14 models with PCI express compression activity, IntelliMagic Vision provides unrivaled visibility into your environment.
Address Space Level Compress/Decompress Activity
zEDC activity at an address space level can help identify differences in activity that may lead to new insights as conversions to compressed data are implemented. z15 address space level activity is only for asynchronous execution of compression/decompression. The z14 reporting will continue to support your management of the activity as you transition from your current state to exploiting IBM’s latest offerings.
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.
Accelerated Root Cause Analysis
Highly flexible drill-down capabilities of IntelliMagic Vision enable data to be viewed at the processor, system, card, or address space level and specific migration activity. Built-in conditional filters can further be a customized for a set of reports on a focused dashboard.
Quickly investigate each hypothesis with just a few clicks and greatly reducing lost time when exploring “dead-end” paths.
