The application collector is a data-collection feature of MainView SRM Reporting. It provides real-time monitoring, budgeting, and control of DASD space utilization.
The collected application data enables the storage administrator to tie individual data sets to applications and to observe and control how space is being used by department, project, programmer, and so on within the organization. The application collector, in conjunction with the space collector, provides historical space information for applications. For information about additional reports that you can generate by using COBOL report programs, see the Reference for MainView SRM Reporting.
To access the Application menu, select Application Management from the Administration section of the EZSRM menu. The Application menu (EZSRMSGC) provides Application Management and SRM Administration options. For more information about SRM administration, see the Using MainView SRM products and the Reference for MainView SRM products.
The following table describes the Application Management options.
