Setting XBM options

XBM uses a set of global options to determine how to keep records and route codes in your environment. An option also controls whether to limit XBM cache allocations if a request exceeds available resources.

The XBM options control such activities as:

  • Enabling System Management Facilities (SMF) reporting

  • Setting the SMF record number

  • Setting the interval for SMF records

  • Setting the interval for statistics

  • Setting the MVS system console WTO route codes

  • Limiting excessive cache

XBM saves option values in the XBM repository. When you install XBM, the default values are in effect. You can specify or modify XBM options at any time. Changes to the option values take effect immediately. New interval values for SMF records and statistics take effect when the current interval expires.
