Top z/OS strategies for Black Friday and Cyber Monday
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the two highest transaction days for many mainframe sites, while other peak periods may happen throughout the year.
Even if you know when your biggest peaks are coming, it’s difficult to know if your infrastructure can deliver the required availability. You need an automated way to derive valuable and accurate intelligence about availability risks, so that you can show the performance and capacity teams what’s most important in all the RMF (or CMF) and SMF data for the end-to-end infrastructure.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss design requirements for this kind of solution and demonstrate it with real-world examples.
- Learn how new algorithms quantify risk in the z/OS infrastructure to ensure better availability in peak periods (such as Black Friday)
- See how intelligent navigation through the RMF/SMF data and flexible views accelerate problem resolution times
- Identify infrastructure performance and trends by applications that are using shared z/OS infrastructure resources

Expanding Role of Sub-Capacity Processors in Today's Mainframe Configurations | Cheryl Watson's Tuning Letter
In this reprint from Cheryl Watson’s Tuning Letter, Todd Havekost delves into the role of sub-capacity processors in mainframe upgrades, providing insights on transitioning to a more efficient CPC.
Why Am I Still Seeing zIIP Eligible Work?
zIIP-eligible CPU consumption that overflows onto general purpose CPs (GCPs) – known as “zIIP crossover” - is a key focal point for software cost savings. However, despite your meticulous efforts, it is possible that zIIP crossover work is still consuming GCP cycles unnecessarily.
