you’re drowning in data? Are you frustrated trying to manually scour
through piles of data to determine the source of a problem?
In the month of March, 2014, IBM shipped IBM SmartCloud Analytics – Log Analysis z/OS Insight Packs V1.1. This tool enables you to consume and index logs from multiple sources, including z/OS, so you can
perform quick searches across multiple logs from a single search interface. Additionally, the tool will perform analysis on the logs to surface probable errors. You can also search the IBM supports sites for documents related to the problem you are trying to resolve.
The initial focus for this release of the z/OS Insight Packs is to provide insight for customers running WebSphere and DB2 on z/OS. As part of our ongoing development effort, we are actively enhancing the Insight Packs to provide additional insight for CICS, MQ and IMS.
If you would like additional information (videos, documentation, forums, etc) please visit our developerWorks community at https://ibm.biz/BdRm3i.
If you are interested to try the product or if you would like to join our effort as we develop additional capabilities, please contact your IBM sales representative or drop me an email at email@example.com.
