  • S407 - Optimizing RMF Coupling Facility Optimization

    Session Evaluation

    One of the items in the z/OS 2.5 announcement was “Enhancements to the priced feature Resource Measurement Facility (RMF), including optimization when gathering Coupling Facility (CF) hardware statistics.”  This seems like a minor enhancement, however, how does it relate to the previous RMF enhancements (MASTER|NOMASTER and CFDETAIL|NOCFDETAIL) that seemed to do the same thing?  And which of them happen automatically, and which require you to do something?  Are there some environments that would benefit from these enhancements more than others?  These and more questions will be answered in this session.
