Performance Toolkit for VM Feature


 

With the announcement of z/VM V4.4, IBM introduces the Performance Toolkit for VM to provide a variety of reports on system performance. Performance Toolkit can be used to provide reporting of data from z/VM MONITOR. These reports can been viewed interactively or they can be created based on entries in the FCONX REPORTS file. Here is a table showing VMPRF reports and the corresponding Performance Toolkit reports:
