When you associate a mouse click with the Enter key in your 3270 emulator session (see the June 21 2013 blog on how to do this)
then with the Enhanced 3270UI you can go ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM from high level issue very quickly to the specific details.
Here is an example using the OMEGAMON Performance Management Suite and the OMEGAMON XE for Storage feature
where we start at the SMSPLEX overview and see the highest DASD Volume response is 23.2 ms
Now by double clicking on the 23.2 white ZOOM field
we go direct to the current worst volume in our SMSplex group.
Here we see volume ARC130 is currently having a response time of 23.2 MS,
So if we ZOOM again on ARC130 volume we can get more details.
Now we see Dataset SYS1.VTOC.VARC130 on the volume ARC130 is getting 63.6 ms
and most is connect time of 59.9 which reflects most likely an archive operation
on this volume causing the response time.
Now we see JOB JB51CS having the response time of 101.6 ms with 95.7ms as connect time
impacting jobs CSQBMSTR and JB51TMS. By clicking on the Jobname JB51CS and ZOOMing
you get the dataset details and help on volume down to the tracks.
So with ZOOM - we went quickly from the possible issue down to the details with 5 clicks-
ZOOM - ZOOM - ZOOM - ZOOM - very nice..
