To get an idea which system parameters could be of interest for a
health check, I recommend to install and run our z/VSE Health Checker.
You may download that tool from our webpage z/VSE Health Checker
It's a Java-based system utility, that run on your workstation and connects to the
z/VSE system via TCP/IP. If you ask to retrieve new data from the z/VSE system, it starts
some jobs to gather the data and sends the data back to the z/VSE Health Checker.
The z/VSE Health Checker visualizes the information, such as the partition storage layout, data space information,
the system directory list, security parameters, subsystem (CICS, VTAM, POWER)
related information and system parameters (IPL, Turbo Dispatcher, ...).
Next you may ask to analyze the data and the z/VSE Health Checker reports
issues colored (green = good, yellow = warning, red = needs attention)
The storage analyzer mainly targets the most critical storage resource, the 24-bit area.
I would like to get your feedback. Are the topics I posted so far of interest ?
What other topics would you like to see ?
Have a good weekend.
