Monitor WebSphere Data Volumes
This video introduces the topic of transaction reporting based on the SMF 120 subtype 9 record, specifically in terms of data volume per request/response.
Monitor WebSphere Response Times
This video introduces the topic of transaction response time reporting based on the SMF 120 subtype 9 record.
Monitor WebSphere Transactions
Each request that comes into WebSphere is considered a transaction and can be reported down to the level of URI name. These URI’s give you the names of specific resources or applications requested, and each individual request is logged.
zAcademy: Tune your TS7700 Cache Capacity
You have multiple functions and parameters at your disposal to define which logical volumes will remain in the TS7700 cache, regardless if you use a TS7700 Disk-Only or a TS7700 with Tape attach. This session gives you detailed information about the different options.
zAcademy: The Value of Automated zOS Performance Change Detection
With all the complexity and workload variability present in today’s z/OS systems, it is important to have significant deviations of key metrics from their historical norms called to your attention.
zAcademy: Is a Sub-Capacity CPC the Right Move for You?
Most installations tend to upgrade their CPCs to the equivalent model in the newer generation – for example, from a z13 710 to a z15 710. But if the IBM tools are not intended to model such moves, how do you evaluate if such an upgrade would be right for your workloads?
