Understanding and Optimizing Mainframe Batch Performance

Webinar on Demand

A webinar by SMT Data

Batch performance is a major component in the overall management of mainframe capacity and performance for most mainframe environments. It is important to know what resources are on the mainframe, how and when they are being used, and for what price. The goal of batch performance management is to make the best use of existing resources to meet batch service level agreements (SLAs) within the batch window at the lowest possible cost. This webinar will focus on various approaches to understanding and managing batch, so it meets those objectives.

These approaches include understanding and optimizing the top batch consumers, balancing the workload, using capping and WLM to prioritize work, understanding bottlenecks such as IO, and analyzing batch utilization in DB2.
