z/OS Connect observability

z/IRIS enriches APM call trees with mainframe traces for REST API requests that are processed by z/OS Connect servers.

The mainframe traces contain information that helps DevOps teams:

  • monitor the usage of mainframe resources by their business applications.

  • get alerted z/OS Connect records an error related to their business applications.

  • identify latencies between the client application and z/OS Connect servers

  • visualize latencies between z/OS Connect servers and the Systems-Of-Record (SOR) that are REST service providers on mainframe.
