We emailed Cheryl Watson’s Tuning Letter 2017 No. 1 (140 pages) to our subscribers on May 10. This is a summary of the main articles:
- This issue included an article by one of our readers, Ronald Kristel (with invaluable input from IBM’s Tom Wasik) about selecting the optimal JES2 checkpoint configuration.
- If you are fed up getting teased by your distributed colleagues about z/OS’ ‘green screen’ interface, take some time to read our guide to getting IBM zEvent up and running on your system and your Smartphone. IBM’s Qais Noorsham’s article (the first of a two-part series) leads you step by step through the process, and we even include an example of how you can use zEvent to send RMF alerts to your mobile device.
- If you are the go-to person for SMF data in your site, you should take a few minutes to read our article about IBM’s new Common Data Provider.
- We also have the second of our series of articles about CPU MF, produced in alliance with IntelliMagic’s Todd Havekost, and IBM’s David Hutton. We have been getting very positive feedback about these articles, so if you are interested in understanding, and hopefully improving, the Relative Nest Intensity of your systems, put a couple of hours aside to read these articles.
- And, last but not least, we have an introductory article about our new SCRTPro service. We received an email from one of our readers saying that the article “really stirred up a storm” in his installation – I hope he meant that in a good way!
- Plus, of course, we have information about the latest performance-related and New Function APARs, new Redbooks, Washington Systems Center documents, blogs, and information about upcoming conferences.
