Deriving Insights from SMF 115 MQ Statistics Data
SMF 115 MQ Statistics records report metrics at the MQ queue manager level. These records are lightweight and have negligible CPU cost, so sites typically generate MQ Statistics records on an ongoing basis.
MQ Statistics - Learning From SMF
This article is designed to introduce you to the types of insights that are available through SMF data with a focus on the SMF 115 MQ Statistics data. After reading, you will have a better understanding of how MQ functions.
zAcademy: The All-Flash datacenter – How come my I/O Response isn’t twice as fast
Many datacenters have adopted flash technology and are observing that their I/O response times are not dramatically different. Learn why.
Understanding Physical Sequential Datasets
Oftentimes it is sufficient to analyze I/O performance without needing to understand the datasets. The SMF 42 records are useful to obtain a deeper understanding of the datasets and the applications that are using the storage.
zAcademy: Lessons on Optimizing Processor Cache From z15 Upgrade Case Studies
Since it is likely that one-third to more than half of your total CPU cycles are spent waiting for data and instructions to be staged into level 1 processor cache, it is critical to understand and have visibility into this significant component of your CPU consumption.
