Just What is a Storage Group Anyway?
Project and Program: MVS
, MVS Storage Management
, SHARE Columbus 2022
One of the four basic DFSMS constructs, SMS Storage Groups are at the junction
of disk volumes, tape libraries, system allocation and backup and migration
functions. The way that Storage Groups are defined affects the availability of
space, the placement and management of datasets, and the reliability of the
system as a whole. This session will examine the types of Storage Groups, their
most (and least) important attributes, their relationship to other z/OS
components and the commands and utilities that can be used to alert, display,
report on, change, and manage them.
