Applications with poor performance cause serious business problems-increased costs, CPU upgrades, missed service level agreements, user dissatisfaction, lack of productivity, application unavailability, and even loss of customers. Applications that use more computing resources than necessary also impact business success. They result in premature upgrades in processing capacity, increased lifetime costs, and an inability to accommodate new workloads as business expands. Even applications that are efficient and responsive when initially deployed, experience performance degradation over time due to changes in systems software, workload shifts, and routine application maintenance.
With Strobe, IT professionals can deliver efficient, responsive applications that consume minimal resources, meet batch-processing windows, complete online transactions quickly and consistently meet service level agreements. Strobe measures the activity of both online and batch-processing applications in single- and multi-system environments, including Parallel Sysplex. Strobe produces the Performance Profile, a set of hierarchical reports that details where and how time is being spent during an application's execution.
With Strobe you get real business benefits:
improved user code efficiency
improved transaction response time and throughput
improved resource-consumptive database calls
reduced costs related to software and hardware upgrades
