Programming Interface Information:
The Monitor Records are intended Programming Interfaces that
allow the customer to write programs to obtain services of z/VM.

DSECT NAME - STOASP FUNCTION - Map a Monitor record. LOCATED BY - Through the Monitor Control Area REFERENCED CONTROL BLOCKS - MRRECHDR Monitor Record Header NAME - MRSTOASP DESCRIPTIVE NAME - Monitor Sample Record Domain 3 - Storage Domain Record 4 - Auxiliary Storage Management (per Exposure) DESCRIPTION - Information concerning paging and spooling space usage. A separate record is generated for each hardware exposure associated with each volume. NOTES: - A volume may be CP owned or a mapped mini-disk volume that is not CP owned. See STOASP_CALFLAG1. - Some CP volumes may be mapped minidisk volumes. See STOASP_CALFLAG1. - For volumes where multiple exposures exist on the same device, the fields whose names begin with STOASP_EXPxxxxx apply only to the exposure. All other fields in this record apply to the device.

For CP volumes this will be the CPvol serial id. For mapped mini-disk that are not CP vols, this will be the dasd vol serial id. See STOASP_CALFLAG1. 26 1A Unsigned 2 STOASP_RDEVDEV Device number. 28 1C Unsigned 4 STOASP_RDEVSID host subchannel I.D. number defined at initialization 32 20 Unsigned 4 STOASP_CALSPOOL Total number of spool slots in use on this CPVOL. Not applicable (and set to zero) if device is a mapped mini-disk that is not a CP volume. See STOASP_CALFLAG1. 36 24 Unsigned 4 STOASP_CALPAGE Total number of page slots in use on this CPVOL. Not applicable (and set to zero) if device is a mapped mini-disk that is not a CP volume. See STOASP_CALFLAG1. 40 28 Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPCTSRD Total number of spool reads 44 2C Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPCTSWR Total number of spool writes 48 30 Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPCTPRD Total number of page read operations for this device. Note that page read operations may be directed to devices without any cylinders specifically defined as type PAGE. 52 34 Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPCTPWR Total number of page write operations for this device. Note that page write operations may be directed to devices without any cylinders specifically defined as type PAGE. 56 38 Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPCURQC The number of page/spool read/writes that are currently active or queued on this logical device 60 3C Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPCTACP The number of page/spool reads/writes that are added onto an executing channel program without executing a RSCH or SSCH 64 40 Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPCTUSI Number of times user I/O interferes with paging and spooling I/O. 68 44 Unsigned 2 STOASP_SCMSSCH Cumulative count of SSCH and RSCH for this device. This value may be wrapped when format-1 measurement blocks are being used (MTRSYS_CALFLG2 = x'80'). 70 46 Bitstring 1 STOASP_CALFLAG1 Flagbyte 1... .... STOASP_CALNOCPV OFF = device is a CP volume. ON = device is not a CP volume. .1.. .... STOASP_CALMDISK Device is a mapped mini-disk volume. Device is also a CP volume if STOASP_CALNOCPV = OFF. ..1. .... STOASP_CPVLDUMP Dump only volume ...1 .... * .... 1... * .... .1.. * .... ..1. * .... ...1 * 71 47 Bitstring 1 STOASP_RDEVDRAN Drain information for the device. If RDEVDRAN=0, the device is not being drained. Otherwise, the bit settings indicate the ALOC type being drained. These values can be found in HCPALOC COPY. For example: ALOCPAGE(x'01) - Page ALOCSPOL(x'02) - Spool ALOCTDSK(x'20) - Tdisk ALOCPERM(x'08) - Links 72 48 Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPCONT(1:20)Number of times a contiguous free space of corresponding number of slots was found available. Each index number from 1 to 19 corresponds to the number of slots found available. Example: STOASP_EXPCONT(8) = the number of times a contiguous free space of 8 slots was found available. For index number 20, this is the number of times a contiguous free space of 20 or more slots was found available. 152 98 Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPDEVST The service time for a paging device. This is the average time in millisecond that takes for this device to process a page I/O and it is computed by dividing the total amount of time in millisecond spend in I/O for the last group of I/O requests by the number of pages moved in that group of I/O requests. 156 9C Unsigned 4 STOASP_EXPMLOAD Modified Device Load (MLOAD). This is the product of the number of pages in the outstanding I/O requests on the device multiplied by the service time of the device. When the system needs to decide what paging device to use next, it picks a device whose MLOAD is smaller than the average system MLOAD. 160 A0 Unsigned 4 STOASP_CPVLOKAT Count of times this volume was looked at while choosing a volume for allocation. This count is not incremented if the volume is full. Not applicable (and set to zero) if device is a mapped mini-disk that is not a CP volume. See STOASP_CALFLAG1. 164 A4 Unsigned 4 STOASP_CPVALOCD Count of times this volume was chosen for allocation. Not applicable (and set to zero) if device is a mapped mini-disk that is not a CP volume. See STOASP_CALFLAG1. 168 A8 Unsigned 4 STOASP_SCGSSCH Fullword cumulative count of SSCH and RSCH for this device. Available when format-1 measurement blocks are being used (MTRSYS_CALFLG2 = x'80'). 172 AC Character 0 STOASP_END
