Gain deeper visibility into Db2 performance
The Db2 SMF data is a rich and voluminous source of metrics about the operation of Db2. But the size and complexity mean it is also difficult to know when the metrics start to get into conditions that represent problems, risk and best-practice violations.
Fortunately, new algorithms are now available to continuously assess and rate the most important issues against Db2 expert knowledge to augment the human teams. This enables predictive and prescriptive analysis of the data, as well as intelligent navigation through the data with flexible views to significantly decrease the amount of time needed to zero in on the desired subset of the data to be analyzed.
This webinar will cover the design for this new type of approach to data analysis as well as a demonstration of:
- Automated Db2 health assessment and identification of the most important issues
- Intuitive navigation through the Db2 metrics for understanding issues
- Flexible ways to analyze and view current and historical data for trends and anomalies
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.
CICS Max Tasks: Automated Change Detection Use Case 7
Change Detection and Health Assessments (based on pre-defined best practice conditions) play complementary roles, but there can be scenarios where they both flag issues. This use case with CICS Max Tasks is one such example.
Batch Job Elapsed Time: Automated Change Detection Use Case 6
Elapsed and CPU times can be of interest for batch jobs, especially those on the critical path for key business job cycles. This use case reflects an abnormally long run time for a daily batch job, and illustrates how potential causes might be investigated.
