Monitoring activities

Use the top menu to navigate to the ACTIVITIES tab. A list of the latest activities and actions are displayed. By default, the activities are displayed in a descending running time order (most recent first). Each column can be used for sorting, the sort icon is visible when clicking the column name. Additionally, a “search within results” box is available for further filtering.

The colored circles on each row indicate how many resources were created successfully, and the activity’s status is displayed on the right. The activity status can be higher than the resources status in the event that there were problems in the discovery or the post processing phase.

Elapsed time of the policy’s activities.

Resource status breakdown

  1. The gray line represents the z/OS resources that are scanned by the policy. A change in this line might suggest an unusual allocation or deletion of a large number of resources. The line’s values are on the right-hand vertical axis of the graph.

  2. The bars represent the number of resources that were created. The color indicates the status of the action. Its values are on the left-hand vertical axis of the graph. A significant change in the height of a bar might suggest unusual activity such as updating a large number of data sets, causing them to be backed up.

In the example above, the activities are consistent except for the third activity from the right: in the middle graph it shows a red bar, indicating that an error occurred while processing. This correlates with a shorter run time as shown on the left-side graph, and less storage as shown on the right-side graph.

Mainframe Vs.cloud storage size. This graph compares the original mainframe-allocated size of the data sets / volumes / z/OS UNIX files to their size in the target object storage, indicating the level of efficiency of the compression method used.

The activities are displayed in a descending order of running (most recent first). Each column can be used for sorting, the sort icon is visible when clicking the column name. Additionally, a “search within results” box is available for further filtering.
