Application Performance Management

Gartner defines application performance monitoring (APM) as one or more software and hardware components that facilitate monitoring to meet four main functional dimensions:

  • End-user experience monitoring (EUM)
  • Runtime application architecture discovery modeling and display
  • User-defined transaction profiling
  • Component deep-dive monitoring in application context, and analytics.

MCG provides a range of technologies and services.

Application Load and Performance Testing

Accurate and comprehensive analysis of application production ensures better performance. Yet, due to the demands of Operational Departments and because of the technologies used, applications must often be implemented in very short lengths of time. They are, however, more and more complex as well as heterogeneous.

MCG provides a range of technologies and services.
We always strive to ensure that your application performance test initiative supports:

  • Your applications' architecture such as Java, .NET, CICS, Console apps, Fat Clients, Services
  • The total solution where MCG Systems performs all tasks for you, if needed.
  • Distributed load test, we can perform from around the world.
  • Migration projects / agile development
  • Integration with APM tools

Systems Management

A superior approach to JES Spool Management the (E)JES workstation, component fully exploits the (E)JES spool management solution and harnesses the multitasking capabilities of today's z/OS servers and multitasking workstations. This approach provides users with the ability to execute multiple simultaneous transactions from a single workstation.

zHISR - Profiling you Mainframe

zHISR is an application execution profiler that lets users easily interface with system z hardware instrumentation to perform near-zero overhead, high-resolution hot spot analysis of programs running under z/OS. This utility is a useful tool for Software Programmers, Performance Analysts and Systems Programmers.

zHISR generates a "hot spot analysis" of customer, vendor or operating system program execution. zHISR normalizes sample data between faster zIIP and zAAP engines and slower sub-capacity coprocessors. You can start and stop hardware event data collections and view the status of a HIS run.

MCG works with Phoenix Software International, Inc. who is a major systems software development company, providing advanced software applications to enterprises around the globe.

Anomaly Detection & Behavior Learning

Behavior learning technology automates monitoring by collecting time-series data from a variety of your existing third-party and proprietary data sources, self-learning normal behavior, detecting anomalies that matter to the performance of your business applications and infrastructure, and visualizing the results in dashboards and reports.

MCG works with Netuitive who replaces human guesswork with behavior learning technology to automate performance analysis.

A behavior learning initiative should help you :

  • View your data in a single location
    View data from a varierty of open source, third-party and custom sources
  • Automate manual tasks
    Let behavior learning technology replace impossible-humanly tasks
  • Isolate performance problems
    Reduce mean time to resolution and save precious time and resources
  • Receive proactive notifcations
    React before your customers call and avoid outages
  • Right-size your environment
    Improve performance and reduce infrastructure cost
