SMF Recording With MVS Logger
Many z/OS customers have begun to suffer from an overload of data provided by the System Management Facility (SMF). As the systems have grown ever faster and larger, doing more and more work generates more and more data from SMF used to measure, manage, and audit their z/OS environment. With the SMF data volumes increasing, the peak recording rates for this data is more and more often exceeding the capacity for recording and offloading. When this happens there is a significant risk of losing the very data they depend on. This project will validate a solution provided in z/OS Release 1.9, against sample customer data rates and volumes.
