Issue/Introduction

In the documentation for UIM, there is a mention of a DB2 probe. Can it monitor DB2 instance running on a IBM Z/OS mainframe?

Cause

- NA

Environment

Release : 9.0.2

Component : UNIFIED INFRASTRUCTURE MGMT

Resolution

The db2 probe is not supported for zOS/Mainframe. Please feel free to enter an Idea in the Broadcom Community for DX Infrastructure Manager a.k.a. CA UIM at:

UIM Z/OS OVERVIEW
------------------------------

UIM can integrate with IBM z/OS systems for monitoring purposes. There are several different probes that can be used to monitor z/OS systems. I have included a link for each probe, which provides a summary of how the probe monitors the system. I have also included the software and hardware requirements for these probes as well.

 

1. zstorage - Feeds metrics data for the mainframe storage environment into CA UIM.

2. zops - Feeds metrics data from the z/OS operating system into CA UIM.

3. zvm - Feeds metric data from the mainframe z/VM hypervisor into CA UIM.

Probes:

CA Unified Infrastructure Management Operations for z Systems (probe name: zops)

CA Unified Infrastructure Management Storage for z Systems (probe name: zstorage)

CA Unified Infrastructure Management for z/VM Systems (probe name: zvm)

CA Unified Infrastructure Management for zNetwork (probe name: znetwork)

The zdataservice must also be deployed to implement these solutions (probe name: zdataservice)
