Got Splunk®? Make sense of the massive machine data streams from your mainframe!

Collect & Forward Mainframe Data into Splunk

Syncsort Ironstream® makes it simple to collect, transform, and securely forward mainframe logs such as SMF records (more than 40 types), Syslogs, SyslogD, RACF, Top Secret, log4j, DB2, and more into Splunk Enterprise, Splunk Enterprise Security, and Splunk Cloud platforms.

  • Less complexity, making it easy to collect mainframe data and correlate it with data from other platforms for a 360-degree analysis. And you don’t need mainframe access or mainframe expertise in using mainframe tools.
  • Clearer Security Information, making it much easier to identify unauthorized mainframe access or other security risks.
  • Healthier IT Operations through real-time alerts to identify problems in all key environments like CICS, DB2, IMS, MQ, etc., and by monitoring transaction system performance, with views of latency, transactions per sec, exceptions and more.
  • More Effective Problem-Resolution Management with real-time views of mainframe SMF data to identify real or potential failures earlier, along with the relevant 'surrounding' information to support triage repair or prevention.
  • Higher Operational Efficiency by bringing to silo monitors new technologies that better correlate events across systems, enabling staff to resolve problems faster — "to do more with less."

zIIP Execution for Copy, SMS Compression & Sort Workloads in One Single Package

Offload to zIIP

The ZPSaver Suite is a set of specialized utilities to offload Copy, SMS Compression and Sort jobs to zIIP processors, effectively reducing the workload on the main CPU. The ZPSaver Suite includes:

  • Copy in zIIP: The only Copy solution that offloads CPU cycles to zIIP engines and executes transparently with your current JCL and control statements. Reduce Copy-related TCB CPU time by up to 90% and achieve up to 25% faster elapsed times with ZPSaver Suite
  • Compression in zIIP: A high-performance and cost-effective alternative for SMS compression. Compression in zIIP offloads Sort & Copy of SMS compressed datasets to zIIP processors, saving up to 90% of TCB CPU time while meeting or exceeding required elapsed times
  • Sort in zIIP: A high-performance, transparent enhanced replacement for sort processing that executes almost all sort steps on zIIP engines. Reduce Sort related TCB CPU time by up to 95%
