Performance management for z/OS systems is a well-established field, and z/OS has a wealth of performance data and tools to help with that. However, sometimes organizations make decisions or have practices that limit their ability to effectively manage z/OS performance. In this session Scott Chapman will explore some of those anti-patterns, from the perspective of the easy things you can and should do to make it easier for you to understand and manage z/OS performance.
