Many issues that arise on the mainframe are the result of inter-relationships between different subsystems and applications. Given the complexity of the relationships, when an issue is detected, multiple experts are brought to bear in order to isolate the root cause down to a particular subsystem; taking hours of time and multiple high value resources.
To help address this situation, CA Mainframe Operational Intelligence is delivering a new Topology app and set of topology discovery services. These topology discovery services can automatically discover parts of your mainframe infrastructure and associate those infrastructure elements with generated insights such as anomalies. The elements can be visualized from multiple scopes — such as elements associated to LPAR or a named application.
Using the new Topology Hotspot Visualizer, mainframe operators or analysts can scope down the mass of infrastructure to the relevant set of elements for a given issue, then at a glance determine where the likely root cause lies. This reduces what typically takes multiple experts, looking at multiple tools, and debating over a bridge call, down to a single screen and less than a minute to determine who to engage — cutting considerable problem analysis time and wasted effort out of the process.
Learn how these tools to improve your vision of your mainframe infrastructure, and be better able to sort out issues as they arise.-David Helsley-Broadcom
