Mainframe performance analysts find themselves in the very fortunate position of having access to more extensive metrics than on any other platform but often find themselves facing an uphill battle trying to sift through gigabytes and terabytes of SMF produced daily at their sites. This task of deriving value from massive quantities of data can be particularly challenging for analysts charged with effectively analyzing CICS and Db2 performance from the SMF 110, 100, and 101 records.
This webinar will discuss and demonstrate the benefits of modernizing how you understand and leverage SMF data for CICS and Db2 Performance analysis. It will highlight how the IntelliMagic approach that automatically checks key metrics associated with the thousands of elements in your infrastructure can identify potential performance and availability issues before they impact production.
Vital insights can be derived through a user interface that enables you to dynamically interact with the data, leveraging context-sensitive drilldowns to explore the next logical analytical step based on the chart currently being displayed. Examples of the value of this powerful analytical approach that will be demonstrated include CICS transaction response time profiles and Db2 buffer pool analysis. We will also show how other SMF data sources (e.g., data sets, service classes, and coupling facility) can supplement the detailed CICS and Db2 records.
