IBM Z® OMEGAMON® AI for JVM is a remote monitoring agent that discovers and solves problems within Java running on z/OS® operating systems. It is a part of the OMEGAMON family of software products.

With IBM Z OMEGAMON AI for JVM, you can monitor the performance of JVMs in different environments on z/OS, such as in CICS®, IMS, DB2® subsystems or in pure Java application servers like the WebSphere® Application Server or WebSphere Liberty Profile. 

Integrate with other products within the OMEGAMON family to deliver seamless z/OS management capabilities.

Analyze native memory address space allocations

Use native memory analysis to see how the overall address space memory is allocated and how it is consumed (threads, class libraries, heap, and so on). Monitor the free memory below and above the bar to avoid out-of-memory issues.

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 of 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.

Operational insights with IBM OMEGAMON

IBM Z OMEGAMON AI for JVM integrates with IBM Z OMEGAMON AI Insights, a diagnostic tool that helps identify and forecast the performance of z/OS system resources and applications. Use it as an AI/ML model to process a curated list of key performance indicators to identify anomalies that are indicative of poor performance and trends.

Use the IBM Z OMEGAMON Data Provider to help detect problems quickly, determine response and automate actions to remediate and prevent future occurrences.
