The z/OS platform excels at efficiently executing transactions and is a critically important component for many business applications. Yet, application development teams rarely have an understanding of how application program changes impact the performance and cost efficiency of the underlying z/OS infrastructure.
Nearly all z/OS performance and capacity experts have stories about an application being launched into production and causing major service level delivery problems and/or unexpected z/OS infrastructure costs. These production problems happened despite existing DevOps test procedures for new application versions.
Last year IBM announced that z/OS mainframe clients could triple the capacity of their development environment with no increase in MLC. Being able to afford a properly sized Dev/Test environment is extremely valuable, but it is not enough to prevent these performance and cost issues.
Our past webinar, Easy z/OS Application Performance Testing Services from the Infrastructure Perspective, discussed an easy way to see variances in the “application performance signature” from an infrastructure perspective.
The webinar covered:
- Application Infrastructure Performance Signatures
- How to Automate the Calculation of Variances between Releases
- How to Increase Collaboration between DevOps areas
- How to Achieve Fewer Unexpected Infrastructure Cost Increases
- How to Have Fewer Production Performance Problems
In the webinar, we examined the historical reasons why the performance and financial cost impact on the z/OS infrastructure has been difficult to test in DevOps organizations and how utilizing a modernized approach with artificial intelligence can significantly improve release quality as it relates to the z/OS infrastructure’s ability to efficiently deliver the service levels required by specific applications.

z/OS Application Performance Testing from the Infrastructure Perspective
Understanding the performance signature of an application from the infrastructure perspective, and comparing each release to the previous enables you to spot problems before they move into production.
