zHISR® 2.5 Application Profiler From Phoenix Software Now Includes a z/Architecture Instruction Speed Tester

EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwired - October 05, 2015) - zHISR 2.5 from Phoenix Software International is now available. This release of the z/OS application profiler includes a z/Architecture instruction speed tester, which can determine the relative and actual speed of over 900 hardware instructions.

Fred Hoschett, Phoenix Software International president, said, "Performance of individual z/Architecture hardware instructions vary considerably. Having the information that the zHISR Instruction Speed tester provides could be useful when trying to determine why a given area in the Spot Analysis is so 'hot.' With this feature, it's now even easier for programmers to pinpoint and optimize inefficient code."

zHISR interfaces directly with z/OS Hardware Instrumentation Services on IBM® System z10® or zEnterprise® processors to collect data for hotspot analysis of customer, vendor, or operating system program execution.
