Even without the increasing complexity of the infrastructure, the growing multitude of available metrics, or the already critically low staffing levels, it would still take an army of experts to check the health of the entire infrastructure every single day.
Under the best of circumstances, an experienced analyst knows the key metrics and areas to check for likely issues or has decades worth of SAS/MXG code to help with this endeavor. But that is neither scalable, nor transferrable to the next generation.
Machine intelligence designed correctly has a deep understanding of the system and can do all the computing, analyzing, normalizing, and prioritizing automatically. This enables experienced and novice performance analysts to efficiently and effectively resolve problems before they occur.
This video is an excerpt from the webinar, “RMF/SMF Analysis – Get Ahead of the Curve with Statistical Analysis.”
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.
Experience firsthand the deepest visibility into your z/OS systems, processors, network, disk and tape environments. Whether you’re in the early stages of product research, evaluating competitive solutions, or trying to solve a problem, we’re happy to help you get the information you need to move forward with your IT initiatives.
