    Please try using the WORKLOAD command.

    The GROUP would be TSU.

    The Count would be the number of Users.

    If you set your FORMAT to MSOUNITS (or page over to the right of the display) there is a MSOSU column.

    Hi Martin,


    you can also use the ACTSUM command and do a SELECT TYPE EQ TSU .

    This will display all the TSO users and also has also some service unit columns :


    CPUSU  -  JOBCPUSU - CPU service units
    IOSU      -  JOBIOCSU - I/O service units
    MSOSU  -  JOBMSOSU - MSO service units
    SRBSU   -  JOBSRBSU - SRB service units
    WMSSU  -  JOBWMSSU - Service units

    thanks for both aswers, but how can i get some data from the MSUSU collumn. I see non there


    I have checked parmib member  MVSVARS and  its enabled: VARIABLE-SET MVS:JOBMSOSU:ENABLE 


    and when i check WORKLOAD no data for all group  for collumn MSOSU



    Another thing:  There is collumn MIPS: this collumn"MIPS" are used MIPS in interval since sysview was started ?

    The values for the MSOSU column come from the field OUCBMSO in the IBM Resources Manager User Control Block (OUCB).  SYSVIEW is just displaying whatever values it finds so it appears that the control block field is empty.  This control block is owned by the System Resource Manager, so there might be something preventing that field from being populated in the control block (configuration option or something).


    As for your question regarding the MIPS column, this column, along with the other columns on the display, show the values for the given data collection interval.  So, it is NOT since SYSVIEW was started.

    I have the same question. We're trying to calculate MSUs consumed for a group of jobs listed in the ACTSUM display. What data in that display can be used to calculate MSUs? What are MSOSUs anyway?

    MSOSUs are storage service units.

    I have fix this  alternatively, i would say easy way 


    I created new threshold  for JOBMIPS metric with RsceAttr TSU and then i have some data to work with in rexx
