Syncsort Incorporated Key Developments

Syncsort Accelerates Ironstream® Momentum with Delivery of Mainframe Machine Data to Elastic Logstash

Syncsort announced new innovations in its fast-growing Ironstream® data integration software, including the ability to deliver mainframe log and application data in real-time directly to Elastic Logstash. The expanded support extends Syncsort’s unmatched mainframe data integration facilities that enable IT staff with minimal mainframe knowledge to get deep operational insights in next-generation analytics environments like Splunk, Hadoop and the Elastic Stack. Highlights of Ironstream Elastic Logstash support include: Extensive Mainframe Log File Support: Delivering all Ironstream-supported data sources to Logstash to provide comprehensive mainframe information for decision support. Data Filtering: Saving time and resources and improving processing efficiency by filtering data to send-only data required for business insights to the Elastic stack. Kibana Dashboards for Typical Use Cases: Facilitating set-up of analytics on mainframe data to enable users to visualize data with charts and graphs via the Elasticsearch search and analytics engine. The new release of Ironstream also includes major enhancements in delivering data to Splunk or Elastic Logstash, including: Multiple Application Programming Interface (API): The Ironstream API for user application data has been enhanced to support multiple APIs for transporting large sets of records. As a result, performance improvements of up to 10x can be achieved in addition to better use of system resources. IMS Log Forwarding: Ironstream now delivers IMS Log data to Splunk or Elastic Logstash. Real-time and asynchronous forwarding is supported for multiple log record types, providing insight into IMS transaction performance and IMS system statistics. Enhanced SMF data collection: A new method of gathering SMF data minimizes the impact of high-volume SMF record processing on application performance by enabling asynchronous collection of SMF data through the SMF INMEM resources and API.
