For years z/OS engineers have been striving to improve the performance of peripheral hardware infrastructures in order to optimize MSU resources of z/OS processors.

This summer, EADM developers took up the heights for a tandem skydiving mission. Accompanied by a pro, they jumped from 3.5 km. Do like them: leap into z/OS disk performance management. In tandem with EADM, the sky is the limit.

If you are looking for work in z/OS performance management, now is the ideal time. EADM will accompany you and help you find modern solutions to issues encountered in modern mainframe shops.

It is now evident that the impact of COVID-19 can be measured through I/O activity in z/OS datacenters. The daily graphs provided by EADM have shown customers that I/O numbers have dropped sharply since emergency measures requested large Enterprises to have their personnel work from home.

To sweep under the rug is an expression meaning to conceal a problem expediently rather than to remediate it thoroughly. As the mainframe is poised to enjoy many more years of success, the ongoing retirements of top z/OS engineers means storage and I/O performance issues are often swept under the rug.

Beyond the context that individuals are free to circulate, AI algorithms on traffic cameras can locate events or individuals potentially dangerous for the population. Amongst others features, AI video analytics can identify drivers who are texting or are not observing traffic signs and who are at risk of provoking accidents. Such drivers are often repeat offenders.

IT shops are responsible for Performance Management. It’s always been so as each z/OS customer has a specific environment with complex and specific rules. It is the hardware manufacturers’ responsibility to ensure that all z/OS CPU and DASD activity be logged in SMF records each second. IBM’s RMF and BMC’s CMF are reports rich in performance data stemming from SMF datasets.

EADM’s AI now allows z/OS Managers to see major gains in DASD performance management while helping reduce non productive MSU consumption.

Below is NOT a map of the Far East. It is the fragmentation map of disks in a zOS data-center. The red indicates the “Average Frag Index” is too high, which induces slower I/O response times and poor disk space occupancy. EADM 2019 lets you see in seconds the fragmentation status of volumes in all LPARs.

There is an increasing number of Big Data indexing applications able to create myriads of graphs. But reccurring questions in data-centers are what kind of synthetic data is needed to optimize hardware provisionning and utilization? What type of alerts should be implemented for the Enterprise?
