Solution name :

Easy Analyze Disk Mainframe (EADM v15)

Solution description :

EADM is a fully automated tool that measures z/OS disk and I/O performance 24/7. The software detects abnormal disk behavior instantly and sends alerts on response time degradation. EADM helps improve DASD performance to prevent I/O bottlenecks. EADM's BIG DATA concept makes mainframe storage performance management easy.

EADM is a simple and innovative tool that monitors DASD performance and I/O behavior round the clock. EADM is based on extraction tools that are a standard part of z/OS: RMF (IBM) and CMF (BMC) reports. RMF and CMF contain a wealth of data on z/OS configuration and performance. EADM mines this data to measure disk and I/O performance. Everyday RMF/CMF reports are sent to EADM for analysis. There is no LPAR limitation.  EADM analyzes hardware and WorkLoad Manager metrics from the RMF or CMF reports. It creates instantly visually arresting dashboards to help the mainframe storage team establish a proactive performance management strategy. The process is completely automated.

    • DCOLLECT analysis
    • etc

  • Business problem

    EADM prevents mission critical SLA failure due to poor IO DASD performance.

  • Business opportunity

    EADM significantly reduces staff time spent on searching for I/O incidents during Time Sharing and BATCH. EADM quickly creates reports for you and your departmental supervisors. EADM ensures seamless migration from 3390 3 to 27/54 or EVA.

    EADM offers you the ability to:

    Asses the advantages of IBM z/OS SSD on your production;

    Asses the advantages of IBM's new DS8800 units on your production;

    Analyze your files everyday or every week in order to create a footprint of the enterprise's signature IO performances;

    Have rapid access to critical information about your disks volumes.

  • Return on investment

    Significantly reduce staff time spent on finding solutions to I/O incidents during Time Sharing and BATCH. Have pertinent reports created in 2 minutes that previously took 2 days to prepare. Have complete automation and continuity of service. Stay ahead of the industry-wide retirement of the zOS specialists from the Papy Boom generation.

  • Competitive advantage

     Guarantee high mainframe availability and prevent IO bottlenecks
     Maintain critical application SLAs
     Significant cost reductions: ROI within 3 months
     Substantial gains in time measured in weeks per year
     Increased internal storage expertise / sensitive operations remain in-house
     All DASD indicators are centralized in a single place
     Ensure DB2 performance is not affected by disk response time
     Certified data (IBM / BMC)
     Independent from hardware manufacturers
     Energy saving
     Simpler and more efficient reporting within IT divisions, suppliers and partners
     No dedicated team required to operate and maintain the software
     No hidden costs linked to MSU consumption or changes in configuration
