On-Demand Webinar

Enabling z/OS Observability using z/IRIS

In this webinar, we introduced z/IRIS and how it enables IBM Z performance data to integrate with popular enterprise solutions, such as AppDynamics, IBM (Instana), New Relic, Splunk, and Sumo Logic. 

z/IRIS solves the mainframe inclusivity problem with enterprise monitoring solutions, providing the data and metrics integration mechanisms that are essential in supporting end-to-end monitoring needs. 

This webinar recording discusses these topics:

  • Creating a z/OS pipeline that streams and transforms System Management Facility (SMF) performance data into a real-time modern & scalable data feed for enterprise monitoring integration
  • Common IBM Z use cases that can be monitored, analyzed, and diagnosed for root cause analysis in your enterprise monitoring system
  • Enabling any enterprise monitoring tool to process mainframe performance data
  • Storing z/OS SMF data in a preconfigured InfluxDB time series database that can be integrated with other applications
