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

Depending on the APM, an event is either automatically linked to the corresponding trace or z/IRIS will append the corresponding trace Id to the event description to emulate event-to-span link.

Db2 Deadlock Events

Every detected deadlock leads to the creation of a deadlock event.

z/OS Work events

Mainframe batch jobs, 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 to which the error applies. Traces are linked either automatically via APM span-linking or manually by z/IRIS appending the corresponding trace Id to the error message.

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