Often times big enterprises have difficulty keeping pace with changes in technology. This means more often than not operations teams are responsible for legacy systems and are constrained by the monitoring tools that were built to support those legacy systems. Just because your technology hasn’t changed in decades, however, doesn’t mean you can take advantage of the latest in production monitoring tools.
Last month we introduced AppDynamics X to enable developers and third parties to build extensions for AppDynamics Pro. In this post we will highlight one of our most recent integrations for working with mainframes. Our partnership with DG Technologies enables enterprises to get deep monitoring of their legacy systems with MEAS and AppDynamics Pro.
Organizations that have any dependency on zOS applications will now have the ability to leverage the most innovative, quick to value and scalable approach to Application Performance Monitoring. AppDynamics gives companies the ability to solve very complex problems quickly instead of spending time and consulting dollars configuring and maintaining legacy APM products that have been the only option until now. The integration between AppDynamics and MEAS is game changing for the enterprise mainframe market.
The MEAS Mainframe Monitoring Extension integrates the MEAS system with AppDynamics Pro to give users visibility into key events and metrics for applications that execute on the Mainframe z/OS platform or traverse both open and mainframe platforms. The operations team can utilize a single tool and methodology to monitor both open and mainframe applications plus applying policies against all metrics. Leveraging AppDynamics and the MEAS Mainframe monitoring extensions provides:
- Visibility into mainframe applications or mainframe applications called from distributed systems
- Complete end-to-end application topology mapping and performance monitoring
- One product to manage open systems and mainframe application performance
AppDynamics/MEAS provides visibility into the following:
- DB2 Database metrics
- CICS metrics
- z/OS metrics
- RMF metrics
