OBSERVABILITY WITH INSTANA
z/IRIS enriches Instana APM traces with tags that contain metadata about the mainframe system, processing, performance and resource consumption. Use the Instana Analyze dashboard to search, filter and analyze mainframe traces.
z/IRIS enables observability for JDBC calls processed by IBM Db2 for z/OS systems. Users gain access to performance metrics and processing information related to JDBC call processing.
z/IRIS will also create events with information about errors that occurred on the mainframe. These events can be integrated with alerting rules so that teams are always aware of any situations affecting business services.
z/OS Connect tracing
Instana APM users can now activate z/IRIS z/OS Connect tracing with Instana APM. z/OS Connect traces represent REST API requests processed on z/OS Connect servers and provides the standard APM KPIs: call information, latency and errors. Each trace contains tags that provide additional context about the request and its processing within z/OS Connect.
