MQ administrators often face significant challenges leveraging the data contained in the MQ SMF 115 records. As a result they currently have limited visibility into the health and activity of their MQ subsystems.
IntelliMagic Vision applies built-in z/OS-specific subject matter expertise to automatically check and rate MQ metrics. This identifies areas that may represent risks to availability or performance that may warrant further investigation.
Reports demonstrated include:
- Rate for Queued Requests
- Buffer Pools by MQ Subsystem
- Buffer Pool Statistics Overview
- Deferred Write Threshold for MQ Subsytem
Mainframe encryption causes higher demand in TCP/IP address space
Many shops are using IBM’s pervasive encryption to protect their mainframe's integrity, but how do we get in front of the mainframe impacts or know which encryption methods might meet security requirements at lower cost?
Stretched in 2020?
This year has certainly stretched everyone. Learn some ways to overcome some new and unexpected challenges that likely weren’t even on your radar in January.
Health Insights and Change Detection
To help enhance the value you can derive from that SMF data, IntelliMagic Vision provides two complementary types of automated anomaly detection: health insights and change detection.
Experience firsthand the deepest visibility into your z/OS systems, processors, network, disk and tape environments.
