It has been said recently by experts that with ESA V5 and above, the RMF capture ratio is very stable. BZZZZZZZZZZZZ... Wrong answer thank you for playing. The Answer is...

Moving to Goal Mode - Word 97

Moving to Goal Mode - HTML

Moving to Goal Mode - PDF
A migration to Goal Mode is either in your past or your future if you are responsible for an MVS or OS/390 system. There is lots of information available from many sources on how to accomplish this change. You can go and get Cheryl Watson's starter set or some other easy to use add water and stir recipe or you can be a masochist and do it on your own. This is one installation's sordid story of how to do it yourself.

MXG in Parallel Prior to 16.02

Processing 40G of SMF

MXG in Parallel - 16.03 and later

Processing 40 gigabytes of SMF data/day?? We are and here is how. The MXG modifications and the paper written for CMG in Word97 format. The new MXG 16.03+ versions of the parallel job streams are also available.

Note the difference in size between the two versions. Because after MXG 16.03 everything can be done instream, there is no need for additional SOURCLIBs or members. Everything is done inside the SYSIN except for IMACACCT, IMACWORK, and IMACSHFT which you still need to tailor. They can be done instream and I have in fact tested it but because these are so ubiquitous, I believe they should still be in your USERID.SOURCLIB to prevent conflicting definitions.

What? Dont believe it can be done in SYSIN? Here is the JCL for the BASE PDB with many addtional datasets. BUILDPDB 236K 380K 6K
Tape Capacity Planning
The Powerpoint slides for a presentation on Capacity Planning for tapes. My estimate is that using these techniques my current employer has saved on the order of 5M dollars in the last three years. 290K
DASD Benchmark
Dazzle your management and annoy your hardware vendors by doing your own DASD benchmarks using Stress Test and your very own production IO distribution. The Powerpoint slides for a presentation on this benchmark. 16K
MXG Benchmark
MXG will process SMF data on a PC and in some cases do it faster than a mainframe. The Powerpoint slides for a presentation on this benchmark. 37K
Tape Code
The SAS code to build the graphs in the Tape Capacity Plan. You will have to have MXG and have the MXG Tape Mount Monitor installed. For a peek at what it looks like here is a sample (tape1.jpg - 75K ) 19K
EMC Code
The SAS code to build a picture of the performance of an EMC Symmetrix box running in a RAID-S configuration from the RMF perspective at the level of the physical disks inside the EMC box. For a peek at what it looks like here is a sample (emcrank.jpg - 160K ) 3K
Clever TCP Code
The SAS code to read data created by Clever TCP from Applied Expert Systems. Barry may change the dataset or variable names but this code works and will get you started... 5K
