IBM Common Data Provider for z Systems features
Single collection point
Use a common infrastructure for accessing operational data, including: SMF records such as SMF 30 and SMF 80 records; SYSLOG The IBM z/OS System Log and USS SyslogD; JOBLOGs output written to a DD by a running job; Application logs including IBM CICS Transaction Server logs and IBM WebSphere® Application Server logs; Generic files—and send operational data generated by your own applications.
Streaming data or batch mode
Steam structured and unstructured data to analytics solutions in near real time. Use batch mode to collect detailed data for analysis or troubleshooting and retrieve archive information to investigate recurring problems.
Intuitive web interface
Quickly define data collection parameters—the ways in which the data can be consumed—and the consumers of the data. The same data can be sent to multiple consumers such as IBM Operations Analytics for z Systems and other analytics solutions.
Control the data flow from data gathering programs using policies. Data gathering programs pass data through a data streamer which transforms the data before transmitting it to consumers.
