AIOps, Mainframe Monitoring, MLC Optimization, Oh My: Hot Mainframe Topics of 2018
As 2018 nears its close, I wanted to reflect on the world of RMF/SMF performance analysis and provide an ode to the topics that resonated most within the industry.
Anatomy of an Anomaly – Finding the Root Cause of a CONNECT Time Increase
Recently a situation occurred at one of our cloud services customers that was a real head-scratcher. One of the disk storage systems saw a sudden jump in CONNECT time. What had changed?
Reporting on z/OS Mainframe Application Performance
Intelligent reporting on mainframe applications is very helpful to understand application performance and behavior on the mainframe, and how the applications are using your systems.
Integrating z/OS Performance Management with Splunk & Enterprise Dashboards
IntelliMagic Vision can export data into a Splunk-ready format, after which it can be imported into Splunk. This means not much data is ingested into Splunk, which can be a significant cost-saver.
Forecasting Usage and Capacity Growth
Processors are expensive, and that is why it is crucial to have an accurate understanding of how much capacity you are using and have left before you run out.
Understand z/OS Workload Peaks in Context
By being able to compare any chart or dashboard with any previous time interval, performance analysts can quickly determine whether a certain workload peak is normal or unusual.
Automatic z/OS Health Checks to Avoid Service Disruptions
Machine intelligence designed correctly has a deep understanding of the system and can do all the computing, analyzing, normalizing, and prioritizing automatically.
Quickly Identify Service Level Violations
Machine intelligence can quickly determine and show when metrics are out of the expected range and quickly identify service level violations.
Detecting z/OS Application & Workload Changes
Statistical approaches help save CPU time and MSU’s by being able to quickly see when something new comes online or when new application versions are less efficient.
