TSLAMON is an EXEC that was written in 1997 to report CPU and PAGE waits in real time (something the RTM/ESA doesn't do). The code is written in REXX and CMS Pipelines and obtains its input from CP's monitoring function.
This code -a 400 line EXEC- is not at all a full-blown performance monitor. If you want to obtain more than just CPU and PAGE wait reporting in real time, consider the code merely as a model. Some comments are included to have it calculate and display the users' CPU usage. Other extensions will require REXX and Pipelines experience.
Furthermore, you should adapt some hard-coded constants in the EXEC, otherwise it will run, but probably not report what/where you want.
In V1.1, the reporting interval used by TSLAMON can be higher than the CP MONITOR interval.
