BMC Compuware Storage Performance

VSAM and disk performance management

Optimizing performance takes ongoing effort to ensure responsive, efficient, and error-free operation. With BMC Compuware Storage Performance solutions, your organization can realize maximum performance while streamlining storage management administration.

Storage Performance tools maximize data storage capacity, reduce VSAM run time, improve CICS and batch performance, and reduce CPU consumption.

  • Optimizes the performance, responsiveness, and scalability of existing systems and investments
  • Delivers dramatic improvement in responsiveness, while reducing I/O, storage, and CPU usage
  • Provides the intelligence needed to boost the performance and utilization of existing systems and resources, while reducing administrative overhead
  • Delivers the insights and controls needed to minimize errors, disruption, risk, and waste

VSAM Performance (IAM)

  • Reliable, high-performance alternative to a VSAM Key-Sequenced Data Set (KSDS), a KSDS with Alternate Indexes, an Entry-Sequenced Data Set (ESDS) and a Relative Record Data Set (RRDS)
  • Outperforms VSAM by reducing the number of I/O operations resulting in reduced CPU time, elapsed time, and response time
  • Lowers costs by exploiting 64-bit storage for buffering and indexing resulting in significant CPU time reduction and improved elapsed time
VSAM Performance
Disk Reorganization

Disk Reorganization (FDRREORG)

  • VSAM data set reorganization solution that is fast, flexible, and intelligent
  • Reorganizes VSAM KSDS, Alternate Index (AIX) files, IAM and IAM AIX files, and PDS files
  • Provides data set reorganization for IAM files while data sets are open for updating in CICS regions
  • Significantly faster than VSAM IDCAMs reorganization, providing a 20% to 60% reduction in wall clock, CPU time, and I/O operations (EXCP) compared to VSAM IDCAMs

Disk Management (FASTCPK)

  • Ensures storage volumes are operating at maximum performance and efficiency
  • Consolidates free space into one or two contiguous areas to ensure data set allocation is placed on the right disks with correct primary and secondary allocations
  • Merges extents from Sequential, PDS, PDSE, VSAM, and Extended Format VSAM data sets and releases all or part of the unused space
