Objective 1: Introduce and discuss the key areas of system performance: system address space CPU, EDM pools, dataset activity, logging, lock/latch contention, DBM1 virtual and real storage, buffer pool and GBP, DIST (DDF) activity etc.
Objective 2: Understand the key performance indicators to be monitored
Objective 3: Provide rules-of-thumb to be applied
Objective 4: Understand how to investigate with more detailed tracing and analysis
Objective 5: Provide tuning advice for common problems

Abstract:  This one day seminar will focus on the key areas of system performance - dataset activity, buffer pool and GBP, lock/latch contention, system address space CPU, EDM pool, RID pool, DBM1 virtual and real storage etc. Information will be provided on key performance indicators to be monitored and the rules of thumb to be applied in each area. Information will be provided on what more detailed tracing and analysis is required. Tuning advice will be provided for common problems.
