Tracing the path of a single customer transaction in a large enterprise is a lot more complex than most people realise. The customer order may start out on the company website, then travel across various network links to a relational database server, on to the mainframe for account processing, then finally to an application server for fulfilment.
What happens when it’s your job to find out where and why the transaction was delayed?
Splunk has always been an amazing tool for collecting data and statistics from a broad range of enterprise platforms, but until fairly recently the mainframe was something of a black hole for tracing our transaction.
Of course, there are plenty of great mainframe performance and security monitoring tools available, but the problem is they exist only on the mainframe. Which means in order to troubleshoot enterprise-wide problems, you still have to switch back and forth between totally different tools and utilities.
With the release of Syncsort Ironstream 1.3 all that changes. Now you can easily collect and forward z/OS mainframe log data, including security data, into Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security to gain a true 360-degree view.
Simply. In real time. Without needing specialised expertise or different monitoring systems for z/OS.
