z/OS Resource Measurement Facility (RMF)

RMF is IBM's strategic product for z/OS performance measurement and management. It is the base product to collect performance data for z/OS and sysplex environments to monitor systems' performance behavior and allows you to optimally tune and configure your system according to your business needs. Resource Measurement Facility (RMF) is shipped as optional feature with every release of z/OS at the current level of support.

RMF - real value for the customer

RMF is designed to ease the management of single or multiple system workload and to enable faster reaction to system delays. Detecting a possible bottleneck early means that corrective actions can be taken earlier. System delays are avoided or at least remedied at an early stage.

System programmers are supported by several reports that ease their work, helping them to tune their system optimally. Consequently, this leads to fewer workload problems and, most important, increases system and operator productivity, a fact that makes the company as a whole more effective at less cost.

New hardware and software concepts are continuously being designed to support growing enterprise environments while reducing the cost of ownership and providing new benefits. RMF makes it significantly easier to manage complex systems.

Data gathered by RMF is the key for performance management of an z/OS system or a system complex of z/OS systems. It is used by many other performance and system management products to help you control your environment.

RMF features improvements in existing functions, as well as new functions to support your growing environment. Your investment protection is assured by using RMF to always have the most current and most accurate view of your system performance.
