Learn how to automatically identify performance exceptions in TS7700 tape subsystems

This white paper demonstrates how IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS Virtual Tape can be used to effectively monitor TS7700 tape subsystems. The dashboards will automatically make you aware of any performance exceptions in your TS7700 subsystems.

This provides you with insight into how the standalone or gridded hardware is handling the work and replication between boxes allowing you to do things like:

  • Tune and plan your tape and virtual tape environment
  • See whether your replication window is met
  • Identify inefficient use of virtual tape and real tape
  • Track tape usage over time
  • Show which workloads are top resources users
  • Monitor back-end tape usage
  • Analyze tape performance trends
  • Identify reclaim needs
