2018 was a watershed year for how RMF (or CMF) and SMF data is used by mainframe performance and capacity teams. 2019 will solidify this momentum.
Mainframe transaction volumes continue to grow for most sites, and continuous availability of the infrastructure to deliver required service levels is more important than ever in today’s 24 x 7 economy. Yet, the number of deep z/OS infrastructure performance experts continues to shrink due to the performance and capacity skills gap at the same time that the size and complexity of the z/OS environment is increasing.
Fortunately, the maturity of white-box analytics (as well as the more common black-box analytics) not only compensates for the discrepancy between the requirements of the job and the time of the experts, but it also creates capabilities not previously possible.
This webinar will discuss these topics and some of the best practices now possible for ensuring efficient application availability from the z/OS infrastructure.
