What can IBM Z OMEGAMON AI for JVM do for you?

IBM Z® OMEGAMON® AI for JVM auto-discovers all online Java® Virtual Machines on z/OS and provides detailed resource metrics for the entire Java deployment across the enterprise. View all Application Programming Interface (API) requests flowing through IBM® z/OS® Connect Enterprise Edition, detailing throughput, error codes, payload size and details on the service provider (System of Record). Utilize product-provided alerts to quickly identify Java-related performance issues and take corrective action before the problem impacts business. Integrate with other products within the OMEGAMON family to deliver seamless z/OS management capabilities.

Enable machine learning to proactively identify common operational issues using OMEGAMON metrics and correlate events through IBM Cloud Pak® for AIOps.

Benefits Visualize Java workloads

Detect automatically all online JVMs to identify which Java workload is running and where.

Reduce MLC

Understand CPU utilization down to the Java thread level, including zIIP offload efficiency.

Manage and monitor

Analyze garbage collection and heap utilization details to detect application memory leaks.

Get proactive operational insights

Enable IT teams to proactively identify common operational issues and define alert thresholds with OMEGAMON AI Insights.

Embrace the digital economy

Enable IT personnel to monitor critical z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition API requests and support the journey to digital economy.

Avoid blind spots

View all JVMs side-by-side, receive alerts for JVM performance issues, isolate the issue and quickly identify the root cause.

Features Automatic discovery of any online Java Virtual Machines

Get a clear understanding of the current Java® workload amount and where it is running, in a single screen.

JVM performance details in near real-time with historical data

Detect thread and locking issues, sub-optimal JVM garbage collection, looping threads and CPU performance issues, including z/OS-specific resources such as zIIP offload and native memory allocation.

Detailed z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition request statistics for Requester and API Provider flows

View inflight and performance details of completed z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition API Provider. Capture API calls initiated from a System of Record (API Requester) with a single monitoring solution.

Analyze native memory address space allocations

Use native memory analysis to see the allocation of the overall address space memory and how it is consumed (threads, class libraries, heap etc.). Avoid out-of-memory issues by monitoring the free memory below and above the bar.

Manage MLC costs with proactive monitoring of CPU usage

Gain insights into the overall CPU consumption of the address space, including zIIP offload and zIIP-eligible work that hasn't been offloaded. Enable mainframe support teams to optimize zIIP processor and CPU capacity.

Predefined key performance indicator alerts

Continue to monitor performance through product-provided situations to track CPU performance, garbage collection, JVM health metrics and z/OS Connect EE API workloads.

Seamless integration as part the OMEGAMON monitoring family

Simplify monitoring and management with a single view of the mainframe and subsystems. Use predefined dashboards populated with multi-level performance metrics to deliver effective user experience.
