z/IRIS enables support for mainframe observability in APM tools, so that mainframe-backed  DevOps teams can manage and restore services that depend on mainframe technology more effectively. 

Mainframe performance records (SMF records) are transformed into APM traces, in real-time, and sent to preconfigured APM tools (on-premise and SaaS). Mainframe traces can be searched, filtered and analyzed alongside all business application traces within the APM platform.

Apache Kafka provides fault tolerant and scalable streaming of SMF records, which can be stored in the cluster and used by 3rd party applications.

Additionally, z/IRIS streams mainframe metrics that can be integrated into enterprise monitoring tools like Grafana.
