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.
