z/OS Tape Workload Distributions
If you have multiple Oracle VSM’s or multiple IBM TS7700 clusters, this video shows an example of how IntelliMagic Vision can easily let you see how well your tape workloads are balanced across the VSM’s or TS7700’s.
Oracle VSM Trend Analysis
IntelliMagic Vision has the ability to keep up to 365 days of data for Trending purposes. By looking at multiple days of data, you can determine if some aspect of the VSM or TS7700 has been growing or changing over time.
Is Your Oracle VSM Data Exposed?
This video shows an example of how IntelliMagic Vision can be used to determine how long it is, on average, before a second copy of the VTV’s exist in your Oracle VSM VTSS’s.
Oracle VSM Buffer Efficiency
This video shows how IntelliMagic Vision can be used to determine how buffer capacity is being used and what percent of the tape reads are buffer hits which give better mount performance.
Artificial Intelligence Based Dashboards and Ratings
In the move from reactive to proactive, it is important to be able to identify potential performance issues before they impact applications. This video demonstrates how this can be achieved.
Global Mirror RPO Spikes
This video will show you how IntelliMagic Vision can be used to provide visibility to the status of Global Mirror replication in a Globally Disbursed Parallel Sysplex environment.
z/OS Virtual Tape Bridge from Physical to Logical Activity
This session demonstrates the characterization of a problem flagged for a TS7700 (CPU Utilization) and shows the link to then discover the host activity present when the worst of the incident occurred.
Who's Using Up All My Tapes?
This video demonstrates the categorization of the tape library into application usage (Volume Groups) and then shows the detailed records of the present usage of tape for that application.
High z/OS Disk Connect Time
By drilling down to specific volumes and consulting change logs, it is easy to determine the root cause of high z/OS Connect time as coming from a newly released SQL query.
