Using AUTO commands
For AUTO commands, the following conditions must exist:
MainView SRM Automation must be active.
The requested AUTO function must be active.
For AUTOAPPL, the application component must active.
When an AUTO command is issued, the data-collection processes are started for the AUTO functions.
These processes can include scanning VTOCs and obtaining data set-level information across the resources that are indicated in the command. If many volumes or data sets are associated with a resource, or if volumes are included in multiple pools, subpools, or applications, the collection processes could be time-intensive and CPU-intensive.
To reduce CPU and storage utilization in the SVOS address space, you can use the AUTO_MXTSK and VSCAN_MXTSK keywords to specify a particular number of tasks to use in automation processing. The minimum value for these keywords is 2.
