Top Performance Strategies for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Other Peak Periods 

Date and Time: Wednesday, July 31, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT 
Speaker: Brent Phillips, Managing Director and Jerry Street, Senior Technical Consultant, IntelliMagic

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the two highest transaction days for many mainframe sites, while other peak periods may happen throughout the year. However, even if you know when your biggest peaks are coming, it’s difficult to know if your infrastructure can deliver the required availability. You need an automated way to derive valuable and accurate intelligence about availability risks, so that you can show the performance and capacity teams what’s most important in all the RMF (or CMF) and SMF data for the end-to-end infrastructure.
We’ll discuss design requirements for this kind of solution and demonstrate it with real-world examples. Attendees will also: 
  • Learn how new algorithms quantify risk in the z/OS infrastructure to ensure better availability in peak periods (such as Black Friday)
  • See how intelligent navigation through the RMF/SMF data and flexible views accelerate problem resolution times
  • Identify infrastructure performance and trends by applications that are using shared z/OS infrastructure resources
