This can build a full are based on how normal or abnormal model based on 90 days of activity, but it should only take a short period of Figure 2: IBM zAware Analysis Page time to run the utility. When IBM zAware is in full swing, it updates the model every 30 days by default. An option to manually start a training run—sometimes referred to as fast learning—is also supported. the message activity is. Also, the number of unique message identifiers in the interval determines a bar’s height. The page shows a wealth of information in a single view (see Figure 2, below). When the systems are behaving as expected, the bar will be blue, but when anomalies are detected, it may become yellow or even red if a critical situation is discovered. The interface allows users to drill down for details of

For example, z/OS clients can be aggregated to a single analysis page for easy viewing of the results from many systems—all of the systems in the same
