Below are the minimum requirements and recommendations for optimal z/IRIS processing.
z/IRIS Linux Server (a.k.a. IronTap)
Requirements and recommendations below should achieve an average processing throughput of 10,000 SMF records per second. Users should adjust the following requirements as needed to achieve the required SMF processing throughput in each environment.
Supports operating systems with English language support only.
AdoptOpenJDK is recommended
zFS mounted file system
Minimum allocated space
Mainframe software requirements
Supported z/OS releases
z/OS 2.1, z/OS 2.2, z/OS 2.3, z/OS 2.4
Required Java platform
IBM SDK, Java Technology Edition, Version 8 64 Bit
At least 1 SMF in-memory resource must be defined for any SMF record types that will be streamed via z/IRIS.
SMF Logstream mode is required to activate SMF in-memory resources.
TCP/IP must be active and configured on z/OS.
Depending on SMF record sizes and SMF record type generation frequency, users should ensure that the number of SMF record types in a single SMF in-memory resource will not result in a loss of SMF records due an exceptionally high SMF in-memory wrap-around rate.
Supported SMF records
SMF Type 30 (1-6)
Common Address Space Work records used to create z/OS Work Traces for partner APM ISVs.
