z/OS Connect traces are built using SMF type 123 version 2 records. To activate these traces, see How to trace z/OS Connect requests with Instana APM.

Irontap uses an internal telemetry format to create traces. Instana specific trace semantics and tags are applied when z/IRIS is configured to integrate with Instana APM.

Below is a description of Instana specific trace semantics and tags for z/OS Connect traces. Unless otherwise specified below, please refer to z/OS Connect trace attributes with OpenTelemetry for a complete list of tags available for Instana users.
