IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis uses Insight Packs and extensions to provide default dashboards, content ingestion and quick searches for handling specific log content. Some Insight Packs are provided with the product, some by direct download and others through the purchase of the required install license.

Reference the “IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis adds Insight Packs to expand service management analytic coverage in your environment” announcement.

Note: For Standard and Premium listed Insight Packs, an install license must be purchased for each and every Insight Pack installed from that license category. A Standard license for each Insight Pack installed that is listed under that Standard category. A Premium license for each Insight Pack that is listed under that Premium category. Premium licenses do not include items listed under the Standard category, nor does the purchase of the license include all items listed in that category. Rather a license purchase is needed for each and every Insight Pack installed.

Accessing IBM System z logs

To access IBM Z system logs you have two options.

  • Option 1: System z Insight packs are available as part of the IBM Operations Analytics for z Systems offering. This product is entitled separately to IBM Operations Analytics Log Analysis, so entitlement needs to purchased to access those packs.
  • Option 2: The IBM Common Data Provider for z Systems is an offering that provides access to a wealth of z/OS operational data including log files. This product can be used, with services configuration, to provide log data directly to IBM Operations Analytics Log Analysis. This approach eliminates the the need to purchase separate entitlement for IBM Operations Analytics for z Systems if you want to ingest and search z System log files using IBM Operations Analytics Log Analysis.

Please refer to this RFA for full details.
