z/IRIS creates notifications in the form of APM Events for certain occurences that may impact business services.

Depending on the APM, an Event is either automatically linked to the relevant trace or z/IRIS will append the relevant trace ID to the event description to emulate event-to-span linking.

Db2 Deadlock events

Every detected deadlock causes the creation of a deadlock event.

Description

name

“Deadlock”

timestamp

“CRITICAL”

description

z/OS Work events

Mainframe batch jobs and job steps as well as other units of work that terminate with a completion code of at least x'0004' trigger an APM Event. The event will contain the error message and is linked to the trace for which the error applies. Trace linking occurs either automatically via APM span-linking or manually where z/IRIS will append relevant trace.id to the error message.

Automatic event span linking is supported by most open-source or proprietary observability frameworks.
