Abstract for Resource Measurement Facility Report Analysis

Resource Measurement Facility (RMF) is a performance management tool that measures selected areas of system activity and presents the data collected in the form of System Management Facility (SMF) records, formatted printed reports, or formatted display reports. You can use this data to evaluate system performance and identify reasons for performance problems.

This information describes all RMF reports in detail, how to generate them, what they contain, their options, and how to use them.

For information about starting RMF and session options, see z/OS RMF Reporter User's Guide.
