Fast Path Analyzer/EP
Key product functions are summarized as follows:
The validation function examines, verifies and reports on pointer data, including segment pointers, root addressable pointers (RAPs), and SDEP pointers.
The analysis function computes and analyzes information about single or multiple areas. User-specified thresholds can be used to set statistical analysis limits. An area data set or an image copy can be used as input to an analyze function.
The analysis function lets you take one or more image copies of the DEDB concurrently.
A variety of reports provide comprehensive analysis data to help you monitor and manage performance characteristics, space usage and physical attributes of DEDBs.
A statistics repository stores information for immediate retrieval and complete record-keeping of historical DEDB activity. User-specified thresholds allow statistical reporting limits and close monitoring of database performance.
An area change modeling utility lets you model the effect of a potential DEDB change before performing it.
Auxiliary utilities that are provided with Fast Path Analyzer/EP allow VSAM zap/dumps, reporting on SDEP space usage, and invocation of DEDB randomizing routines.
By using Fast Path Analyzer/EP with Fast Path Reorg/EP, you can analyze and reorganize an offline DEDB simultaneously.
