Towards the OSA and beyond - Using Wireshark for z/OS Packet Trace Analysis
Project and Program: Enterprise Data Center

, SHARE in Atlanta 2012
The days are over when connectivity problems in the System z could solely
be solved by z/OS personnel only. In today's modern multi-tier
multi-platform application designs a new approach in network diagnosis is
While the z/OS packet trace is always a good start on the quest to the real
root cause of a problem, unfortunately outside the zSeries the SYSTCPDA
packet trace is not known well enough to serve as a trusted evidence.
This session will demonstrate how the use of wireshark helped to speed up
problem resoution for problems that surfaced on z/Os but had their root
cause outside the mainframe.
This session is a preparation for a wireshark hands-on lab session
