This course introduces the student to the TSO/ISPF environment used for real-time online access to z/OS. The topics include the use of the panels, navigation between screens, and invoking other ISPF facilities. Specific functions deal with the role of utilities, editing facilities, and TSO commands used in generating CLIST or REXX scripts. In addition, a brief introduction to SDSF, for viewing generated output, is included.
Gerhard Adam offers 41 years of experience in large systems computing with specialization in performance, capacity planning, and z/OS internals. He has been involved in software development extending from access method interfaces and telecommunications to performance reporting software.
