JDBC Observability for Db2 for z/OS servers
z/IRIS enriches Instana application call trees with mainframe traces for JDBC requests that are processed by Db2 for z/OS servers.
The mainframe traces contain information that helps DevOps teams:
monitor the usage of mainframe resources by their applications.
get alerted when their applications are impacted by deadlocks.
quickly verify if their application is blocking Db2 resources on mainframe
quickly verify if their application waited for resources until it timed out
identify applications involved in the same deadlock event
z/OS batch job observability
z/IRIS enables Ops to monitor z/OS batch jobs. Ops can monitor when batch jos start, when each step within the job start and end, and when the job ends.
Each z/OS batch job trace contains the following mainframe information:
z/OS LPAR and Sysplex(as applicable) where the job runs/ran
z/OS JES2 identifiers and correlators
SAF assigned userid
When steps or jobs end the following information is included in the trace:
CPU and zIIP time consumed
CPU service units for cost analysis
Duration of the job or step
