DX Infrastructure Mgmt - Looking for ZOS Probe and Monitor Best 'Happy' Values

  • 1.  DX Infrastructure Mgmt - Looking for ZOS Probe and Monitor Best 'Happy' Values

    Posted 07-26-2019 07:04 PM

    Has anyone had to formally research and propose values for the set of zops znetwork zstorage probes and monitors for the UIM for the z/OS MVS Operating System environment?  I am interested in a white paper or a study on the results achieved while determining best values for CRIT/MIN/MAX specifications for this operating system platform.

     

    Thank You.

    Thanks - do you know if there are any users of the ZOS probes and monitors?  Are we the first and only?  This will give me an idea if we're up against trying to figure this out on our own or if there is anyone I could contact to get some guidance.  The problem we're facing is that with the ZOS ZVM operating systems (I think UNIX varieties has the same plethora of tasks and daemons) I would like to get a list of tasks that should be monitored and those that should not be monitored to reduce the storage requirements of the probes and monitors.

    Are there other customers using the zops zstorage znetwork components of the CA-UIM product?

    Don't know, had plenty of cases for the iSeries probes, but none for the z system probes.
