With Ironstream, you collect log data from SMF, RMF, Syslog and other z/OS sources, and forward that data in real time to the Splunk® Enterprise analytics platform. That gives you visibility into your z/OS environment as well as your distributed and open-systems environment. Total visibility, in other word. This is done without the need for z/OS monitoring systems or for specialized, scarce, and costly mainframe expertise.
Comprehensive and powerful business intelligence reporting is at hand as users can easily search, analyze, and visualize the mainframe log data along with log data from distributed and open-source systems.
Ironstream also integrates with Splunk’s Enterprise Security and IT Service Intelligence applications. This goes beyond IT operational analytics to give you a firmer grasp of potential security threats in your z/OS environment. It ensures that your critical business services are being delivered on time.
