SDSF provides a powerful and secure way to monitor and manage your z/OS sysplex, in both JES2 and JES3 environments. SDSF's easy-to-use interface lets you control:
- Jobs and output
- Devices, such as printers, readers, lines, and spool offloaders
- Checks from IBM Health Checker for z/OS
- System resources, such as WLM scheduling environments, the members of your MAS, and JES job classes
- System log and action messages
