Top z/OS strategies for Black Friday and Cyber Monday
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the two highest transaction days for many mainframe sites, while other peak periods may happen throughout the year.
Even if you know when your biggest peaks are coming, it’s difficult to know if your infrastructure can deliver the required availability. You need an automated way to derive valuable and accurate intelligence about availability risks, so that you can show the performance and capacity teams what’s most important in all the RMF (or CMF) and SMF data for the end-to-end infrastructure.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss design requirements for this kind of solution and demonstrate it with real-world examples.
- Learn how new algorithms quantify risk in the z/OS infrastructure to ensure better availability in peak periods (such as Black Friday)
- See how intelligent navigation through the RMF/SMF data and flexible views accelerate problem resolution times
- Identify infrastructure performance and trends by applications that are using shared z/OS infrastructure resources
Do you realize how much you can learn (about almost anything) from RMF & SMF data?
The mainframe platform produces an incredible amount of data providing easy visibility into metrics from numerous areas.

Modernize Db2 SMF Analysis with Smarter Algorithms
The Db2 SMF data is a rich and voluminous source of metrics, but the size and complexity make it difficult to know when the metrics start to get into conditions that represent problems, risk, and best-practice violations.
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.
