Modernize your understanding of the SMF data for CICS and Db2

 

email iconGet Notified of Upcoming Webinars

This webinar will present the benefits of modernizing how you understand and leverage SMF data for CICS and Db2 Performance analysis. Instead of being overwhelmed by massive volumes of CICS and Db2 SMF data and combing through countless static reports, discover how interactive analysis using an intuitive GUI interface with context-sensitive drilldowns can elevate your effectiveness to an entirely new level. And learn how rated health assessments of more than 100 metrics visualized in easy-to-use dashboards can help you identify potential performance and availability issues before they impact production.

We will also show:

  • How other z/OS metrics (data sets, service classes, coupling facility) can supplement detailed CICS & Db2 specific data
  • How to identify current and pending CICS & Db2 health issues
  • How to analyze Db2 and CICS Transaction response time profiles
