Live Virtual Classes

Upcoming Past z/VM LVCs Past Linux on System z LVCs Past z/VSE LVCs

General Information
IBM offers education on a variety of z/VM, Linux on System z and z/VSE topics in the form of "Live Virtual Classes" (LVC). The day of the LVC broadcast, you can see the charts and listen to the speaker "live". In addition, you are able (and are encouraged) to ask questions of the speaker during a Q&A session following the prepared presentation. Please register for the section you wish to attend. Each LVC lasts approximately one hour, including Q&A.

The day following each LVC, we plan to post the the charts here in PDF format. Shortly thereafter we plan to provide a replay where you can read the charts, hear the recording and the Q&As. You are welcome to read the charts or listen to the playbacks when you can't participate 'live' or even if you wish to hear it all again.

Upcoming Live Virtual Classes (LVC)

Date: Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Topic: An introduction to tuning VSAM file performance under CICS TS in z/VSE
Speaker: Michael Poil, IBM UK
Abstract: The aim of this presentation is to explain some of the theory about how VSAM works under CICS TS, and to show how local VSAM file performance can be tuned using the free tools provided by IBM. It will also identify the limitations of these tools. Some Vendor products are also mentioned. It will not address the issue of tuning VSAM usage within the applications themselves. The presentation assumes some familiarity with EXEC CICS VSAM requests, VSAM dataset concepts, IDCAMS DELETE/DEFINE parameters and CICS CSD resource definitions.
Presentation Charts: TBD
Duration: 100 minutes
Date: Wednesday, July 30, 2014 or Thursday, July 31, 2014
