Z-RAYS is a software tool that makes z/OS performance data available, understandable and presentable, or exportable. Based on existing infrastructure for accessing machine data on z/OS systems, the tool gathers data from multiple sources, including SMF records, RMF, Syslog, security logs. As a result, the tool provides data for common analytics platforms, streaming it in almost real-time.
Thanks to Z-RAYS, you can stream that data in nearly real-time, sending it to multiple destinations in different formats for different consumers and allow IT operations to analyze and manage operating systems, databases, and mainframe other environments.
Modern admin monitoring Z-RAYS-console provides a comprehensive performance and availability view makes administrator life easier and enables to take actions professionally based on figures:
- detecting mainframe performance problems across multiple subsystems,
- allowing computer operations personnel to isolate quickly and take action on these problems,
- status tracking and prediction for better resource allocation, utilization, or planning.
Z-RAYS is in the same tool class as IBM Common Data Provider, Intellimagic, and EPV – but has more and better features and wrap up the best scope among competitors, while at the same time not affecting monitored resources.
