The Resource Measurement Facility (RMF) is a measurement collection tool that is designed to measure selected areas of system activity and present the data collected in the form of SMF (System Management Facility) records, formatted printed reports, or formatted display reports. An installation can use the information in the RMF output to evaluate
system performance and identify reasons for performance problems. This book provides a description of what RMF is, what it can do, and how to use it. It is intended for use by the system programmer responsible for installing or removing RMF and modifying its functions, for the system personnel responsible for measuring and improving system performance, and for the operator and terminal user. Because RMF is a tool for measuring system performance, this book assumes that the reader has extensive knowledge of the 0S/VS2 MVS system. The book does not define most system terms, but it does include an acronym list.

The book contains three types of information:

  • A basic, conceptual description of what RMF is and how it can help you to measure system performance.
  • Procedural information that describes step-by-step approaches to making RMF work for you.
  • Reference information that enables you to locate a specific piece of required information.
