Tivoli Advanced Reporting & Management for DFSMShsm details

Use reports to verify the health of your DFSMShsm subsystem

DFSMShsm is usually one of the bigger workloads on your z/OS® system, so maintaining health and efficiency is critically important. Easily collect and display critical information to determine what work DFSMShsm is doing, and the status of that work. Zoom in on problems and take corrective action before issues occur. Drill down to analyze areas of concern and run 'what-if' scenarios. Hierarchical storage management (HSM) health reports ensure that resource allocations are assigned correctly.

Reduce data exposure and DFSMShsm inefficiencies

Reduce data risks, exposure and corruption by fine tuning your DFSMShsm environment. Reveal unnecessary workloads to reduce costs. Report on scheduled tasks to ensure expected work runs to completion and identify DFSMShsm-managed data that is wasting resources either “data set thrashing” or static data kept in active storage.

Backup and recover data sets using SRECOVER

You can recover data sets from either an active DFSMShsm or retained backup copy. The SRECOVER function works in a stand-alone mode outside of IBM Tivoli Advanced Reporting and Management for DFSMShsm.

Automate reporting and analysis

Automate resource allocations and data migration. Create custom reports by filtering specific data and using zoom options to drill down. Report on current and historical information for comparison and analysis, with either online or batch processing options for larger reports.

Simplify administration

Maintain and Reorganize Control Data Sets (CDSs) without shutting down DFSMShsm. Automatically issue commands to correct errors, filter using specific criteria with both default and customizable command options.

Track trends and manage resources

Automatically create charts, graphs with trending reports on space analysis and resource utilization for better storage management.
