Enabling IBM Z Observability for DevOps
In this Webinar, SEA shows how you can utilize open standards and scalable technology to integrate IBM Z performance data with popular Application Performance Monitoring solutions, such as AppDynamics, IBM (Instana), New Relic, Splunk, and Sumo Logic. Discussion and demonstration topics will include:
• How to enable a z/OS pipeline that streams performance data into a real-time metrics feed for Site Reliability and Application Performance Engineers using distributed dashboards.
• Enterprise Application use cases incorporating JDBC for DB2 and APIs through z/OS Connect, to request and consume mainframe services.
• A scalable and reliable approach to streaming, tagging and storing metrics and selected z/OS SMF data in a database structure for post processing.
View this webinar to learn how Enterprise DevOps personnel can detect and diagnose IBM Z performance issues impacting Application Execution by using their existing continuous monitoring and observability platforms.
