2 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology If you work with SMF/RMF data, the process of retrieving specific information can be a challenge Large volumes of data (millions of records) from multiple LPARS may be scattered all over the enterprise Let’s try a simple question…can your current system easily provide the following information???

3 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology All SMF 30 Subtype 4 Records… Containing a JOBNAME starting with “PROD12”… That ran two years ago on January 15 th … Between the hours of 1 PM and 6 PM…

4 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology If your answer is: “No!” “I’m not sure…” “I’d rather try to find the spanner wrench I lost in the garage three years ago!” You need to check out CIMSMART! One final question…

5 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology Can your current system eliminate the possibility of a “Data Loss Condition”? Once again, if your answer is… “No!” “I’m not sure…” Then you need to check out CIMSMART!

6 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology Robust and secure archival of SMF/RMF data Quick and efficient retrieval of SMF/RMF data What you want is what you get!

7 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology CIMSMART archival of data Uses IBM facilities and utilities Automates archival of data Eliminates “Data Loss Condition” Provides a safe repository for data

8 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology Three Storage Tier process 1 st Storage Tier Activated when the “Switch SMF Command” is issued 2 nd Storage Tier 1 st Tier moved to the 2 nd Tier daily 3 rd Storage Tier 2 nd Tier moved to the 3 rd Tier weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc. User controls records written to the Storage Tiers By record type or subtype

9 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology Historical SMF/RMF data may be added to the Tier 2 or 3 store at anytime Stores may span multiple System IDs Internal controls prevent data duplication

10 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology “The best data archive in the world doesn’t work if you can’t retrieve the data.”

11 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology CIMSMART Data Retrieval Data is automatically retrieved from any of the three Storage Tiers A retrieval request may span multiple Storage Tiers Compact VSAM Control Clusters streamline the retrieval process

12 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology Retrieval may be by: Date range Time period SMF System ID SMF record type SMF record subtype Day of week Enhanced retrieval by key

13 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology With CIMSMART a few simple parameter statements get you the information you need Retrieval requests that would be impossible with other systems are easy with CIMSMART Retrieval is automatic

14 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology Once the records are retrieved, you can also see what you got! Standard IDCAMS formatted report Ad-Hoc detailed report Both available through the ISPF/PDF interface

15 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology The IDCAMS report Available through the ISPF/PDF (TSO) interface View from 10 to 300 records Standard ISPF browse interface Scroll through the records serially or find specific values Hex dump and character display included

16 © QuickSilver Enterprises, LLC Managed Archival & Retrieval Technology The Ad-Hoc detailed report Available through the ISPF/PDF (TSO) interface Filter on keyed fields (job names, program names, USERID) Detailed columnar format with display values Support included for many record types Additional records supported on demand Local or remote implementation
