There's an influx of newer technical performance and capacity analysts in the world of z/OS and enterprise architecture. There's also an ocean of data that's available to serve as a base of information and knowledge. There actually can be too much data to start with, and direction is necessary to extract meaningful and relevant information from the very mature System Management Facility (SMF) and Resource Management Facility Data (RMF) components.
An introductory tutorial to the record types collected from these monitoring systems, and a brief overview of analysis can be the first step toward a complete understanding of the environment for the new analyst.-Gregory V. Caliri-BMC Software, Inc.
