System Display and Search Facility

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

SDSF Function in z/OSMF
SDSF function is available in IBM z/OS Management Facility (z/OSMF), which lets you manage aspects of z/OS through a web browser interface. You can see system activity at a glance with graphic views of CPU use; manage and browse jobs, output and checks for IBM Health Checker for z/OS; issue system commands and export SDSF tables for use by other programs, such as spreadsheet applications.

New for z/OS V2R2
Work with job steps, JES2 job groups, and more. Print an SDSF panel or save it to a data set. Run a REXX exec against a row on a tabular panel, using an action character. Generate a REXX exec for the current panel and display it with ISPF Edit. Save system commands for future use with comments and groups. Read about these and other recent enhancements.
