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 RMF Records, SMF, Syslog, Security Log, and SQLs. As a result, the tool provides data for top analytics platforms, streaming it in almost real-time.
Thanks to Z-RAYS, you can stream that data in near 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.
The modern admin monitoring Z-RAYS-console provides comprehensive performance and the availability view makes administrators’ life easier, enabling professional action to be taken 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.
