z/IRIS

ENABLES MAINFRAME-INCLUSIVE OBSERVABILITY AND MONITORING

z/IRIS provides mainframe support for proprietary and open-source APM products. z/IRIS mainframe traces and events are created and correlated by z/IRIS in APM user-interfaces. z/IRIS z/OS metrics are streamed to data sinks that feed into in-house visualization and analysis software for monitoring.

Recognizing the power of industry leading open-source solutions, z/IRIS provides cutting-edge integration capabilities, ensuring your mainframe-backed DevOps have mainframe support in tools they are familiar with.

z/IRIS supports OpenTelemetry, which is a widely accepted and adopted open standard observability framework. Using OpenTelemetry Protocol(OTLP) specification, z/IRIS can offer vendor-neutral mainframe observability support to customers who use compatible APM products.

WHAT IS MAINFRAME-INCLUSIVE APM?

Does your APM software support mainframe technology? Do your DevOps teams need more mainframe-related observability? z/IRIS extends the capabilities of your existing APM software by providing back-end support for mainframe-related APM features. Our software enriches user-interfaces with mainframe traces and events to improve Root-Cause Analysis(RCA).

POPULAR USE CASES

Distributed Db2 for z/OS Observability
Identify which applications are involved in deadlocks and which applications are blocking database resources, monitor mainframe CPU usage for JDBC requests, gain insights into ineffective SQL requests and more.

z/OS Connect Observability
Identify latency between z/OS Connect servers and System-of-Record systems (service providers), monitor payloads and HTTP responses and authorization tracking.

z/OS Metric Streaming
Integrate z/IRIS z/OS Metrics into visualization and analysis software for mainframe-inclusive infrastructure and application performance monitoring. z/IRIS Metric streaming support Infux Data’s InfluxDB time series database but can be easily adapted to meet customer requirements.

z/OS Work Observability
Monitor z/OS batch jobs, address spaces TSO user activity and Unix System Service processes in a compatible APM product of your choice.

Features

Z

zIIP compatible

z/IRIS z/OS clients can run on zIIP processors, saving our customers the running MSU costs, while they benefit from our cutting-edge mainframe-inclusive APM capabilities.

Z

integrable

z/IRIS is a plug-in solution that integrates with open-source and proprietary APM products to provide mainframe monitoring capabilities to their end-users.

Z

APACHE KAFKA INTEGRATION

z/IRIS utilizes an in-house Apache Kafka cluster to stream SMF data. Custom retention periods provide additional flexibility for storing raw SMF data that can be used by 3rd party tools.
