z/OS Log Stream Handling
Manage Mainframe Log Streams at a Glance
The z/OS operating system generates several million messages each day, ranging from simple informative texts and user registration notices through to essential error messages. In this context, Operlog data, a special log stream format, plays a key role. Administrators can testify to how much time it takes to work with this format and the special know-know it requires. The Operlog Tools from Beta Systems provide you with an invaluable application for easy access to relevant information.
Retrieving Operlog data fast and with ease
Finding and analyzing Operlog data no longer requires you to utilize two separate tools, because a unified interface facilitates central information access.
Operlog Manager significantly simplifies the way users handle Operlog data. This allows administrators to determine the cause of a fault faster than ever.
Rapid error analysis thanks to detailed data access
Operlog Tools offers powerful functions for analyzing online and archived data inventory via a simple-to-use interface. This, for instance, allows companies to evaluate serious production errors.
As an additional advantage, useful selection and filter criteria can be defined on a case-by-case basis. If so desired, even team colleagues can access these filters, providing all contributing parties with a unified case view
Narrowing down root causes
In general, when troubleshooting an error, individual suspicious messages, message parts or jobs are known. However, there is one major unknown: What happened right before or after this ‘known event’?
The Operlog Tools provide you with an adequate message selection for your analysis by allowing you to define a time frame in seconds; messages that occurred before and after the event will be shown for this interval. This unique function in particular simplifies the task of analyzing errors.
