Many IBM® customers execute more than 500 million transactions per day across their enterprises, creating massive volumes of instrumentation data. Because modern applications frequently interact with external subsystems and use system services, pinpointing the cause of a problem within this big data can be difficult.

The log, SMF, trace and other instrumentation needed to analyze this volume of modern transactions can overwhelm some traditional tools. They may lack a framework for finding data, consolidating it and providing details for transaction analysis.

Join us for this complimentary session as we explain the capabilities of an IBM tool that can help reduce the instrumentation processing of big data. This “exception processing” feature in the tool crawls through the instrumentation data looking for transactions that have exceeded exception criteria. Once identified, the tool enables transaction life cycle analysis using IMS™, CICS®, DB2®, WebSphere® MQ, SMF and OPERLOG data.

Our guest speaker will discuss how the IBM Transaction Analysis Workbench automates data gathering, enhances collaboration, reduces the time to fix, and helps you train the next generation of support personnel. With expanded DB2 analysis, it can discover SQL performing data scans, cascade deletes involving multiple tables, stored procedures, user-defined functions and triggers. Application development teams will see how the tool enriches their environments.

Join us after the teleconference for a live question-and-answer session. This teleconference will also be available for replay after the event.
