Monitor Data

My enhanced MONWRITE can help you collect z/VM monitor data.

If you need the very simplest MONWRITE instructions possible, try this.

Want some incentive to practice collecting MONWRITE data? Check out this free offer!

Bill Bitner's MONWRITE data collection tips are also very useful.

The Very Basics of z/VM

  • Audio narration: Recently I recorded an audio narration for our lab's introductory z/VM presentation The Very Basics of z/VM. To download the narrated PowerPoint file, right-click here, pick "Save Target as...", and save the 113 MB file. After you download it, unzip it to recover the PowerPoint file.

  • z/Journal article: In early 2008 Bill Bitner and I cowrote this article (880 KB) for z/Journal. The article covers the same material as the above PowerPoint presentation.


Here are some things of mine you can download. Keep these points in mind:
