Enabling IBM Z Observability Using z/IRIS

Stream IBM Z Performance Traces & Metrics to Enterprise APM Platforms

 July 22, 2021 at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT

Continuous monitoring and observability platforms support application problem detection and root cause analysis using a holistic view throughout the software lifecycle. Unfortunately, few platforms are mainframe-inclusive, lacking the data and metrics integration mechanisms essential to support end-to-end monitoring business needs.        

z/IRIS solves the mainframe inclusivity problem with enterprise monitoring solutions. 

In this webinar, we’ll introduce 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. 

We’ll cover the following 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

Please join us on July 22nd for a look at this exciting new product that allows your DevOps personnel to detect and diagnose IBM Z performance issues using their existing continuous monitoring and observability platforms.
