IBM Z Common Data Provider

Admins: Please read about Splunk Enterprise 8.0 and the Python 2.7 end-of-life changes and impact on apps and upgradeshere.
Access your data. Leverage your mainframe.

IBM® Common Data Provider for z Systems® (CDP) allows you to rapidly centralize your IBM Z operational data (140+ data sources are supported including all standard SMF records, plus systems log and applications log types like CICS®, IMS™ and more) for Splunk ingestion.

Build an integrated analytics ecosystem and maximize your Splunk investment by using CDP's advanced data filtering which is optimized for efficient data compression. Collect data once and stream to multiple targets in near real time using a single out of the box solution. Use CDP to filter specific events and logs to significantly reduce your Splunk ingestion volume to reduce costs and maximize your current Splunk license.

Reduce ingestion costs and save on streaming.

Only Stream What You Need

Mainframes generate large volumes of data. CDP was built to optimize and format that data for Splunk ingestion. By using the advanced data management system, you are now able to filter and stream exactly what your enterprise requires.
• Curate Operational Data: customize and develop specific data streams using record calculations.
• Record Level Filtering: only send records that meet your specific conditions.
• Field Level Filtering: only send parts of the record needed in the target.
The extensibility of CDP allows you to add and extend existing data, including 3rd party and proprietary sources, all without the need for code updates.

Value Through Integration

IBM® Common Data Provider for z Systems® is part of a larger IT Operations Analytics solution designed to truly open your mainframe for end-to-end visibility across your entire enterprise. The IBM Z IT Operations Analytics solution was developed to deal with the pains caused through the digital transformation by enabling change without compromising reliability, managing visibility into hybrid and multi-cloud applications, and empowering operations with intuitive user experiences and analytics.

IBM® Z Operations Analytics® (IZOA) (which includes a full version of CDP) reduces outages and the corresponding business impacts, through powerful anomaly detection to identify root causes via deep insights and intelligent searching of operations data.

Simple User Interface

CDP features an intuitive, familiar, and easy to navigate graphical user interface with the option to select, filter, and send data to your required target(s). Just select your IBM Z SMF or Log data you need, add your data filters, target(s) and go! It's as easy as that.

The configuration user interface leverages WebSphere Liberty (provided) and z/OSMF in order to deliver simple UI

QuickStart Dashboards

The IBM® Common Data Provider for z Systems® dash boards are an extension of the CDP core product. These dashboards give you the ability to quickly visualize mainframe data in Splunk, alongside your distributed data. Z operational data is shown from SYSLOG and SMF and enables operators to quickly visualize application performance and potential error conditions for CICS, Db2, MQ and z/OS.

This is tool is especially valuable for your Splunk operators to quickly visualize application performance and potential error conditions that exist in the z/OS environment, with detailed visualizations of CPU performance, IO rates, and key messages.
