NBA stands for Network Behavior Analysis. More specifically, NBA for z/OS offers a unified flow analysis system for applications and users by analyzing traffic on a z/OS platform and correlating and consolidating complex transaction components as they travel through CICS, DB2 or IMS.
NBA for z/OS user identity tracking correlates usernames with host IP addresses related to transactions. It identifies the “who” behind the “what”, pinpoints the source of mainframe activities with specific end-users and automatically determines who is responsible for, as well as who is affected by, an unexpected event.
When applied to IP Networks, the Behavior Analysis feature of ServicePilot NBA for z/OS helps you identify who is consuming network resources. Filters can be customized and applied for accurate analysis. Analysis can be done on last 24 Hours’ statistics or on previous days’ or weeks’ statistics.
