Creating a monitoring interceptor
Interceptors are used for monitoring purposes in a z/OS® Connect native server. An interceptor that writes SMF 123 records is included with IBM® z/OS Connect. You can also use interceptors that are supplied by other products or you can create your own.
Interceptors are OSGi services that are called by IBM z/OS Connect through the OSGi framework. Design your interceptors to run quickly and maintain acceptable performance of the request flow.
z/OS Connect provides an audit interceptor that is used to write SMF records. For more information, see Using SMF records to monitor requests.
