    QUESTION:

    MainView for z/OS - Understand history datasets and associated Views for Regular, Long-term and Short-term periods.


    ANSWER:

     

    Understand history datasets and associated Views for Regular, Long-term and Short-term periods.

    Mainview z/OS can have different historical datasets :

      
       
    • Regular Historical datasets

    •  
    • Long-Term Historical datasets

    •  
    • Short-Term Historical datasets

      


    View DSLISTZ visualize the 3 types of historical datasets :

    You can zoom on each view to visualize names, status and depths of recording :

      
       
    • DSLIST view is giving the list of history datasets defined for Regular History

    •  
    • DSLISTL view is giving the list of history datasets defined for Long-Term History

    •  
    • DSLISTS view is giving the list of history datasets defined for Short-Term History

      


    If you need to visualize all views associated with Long-term historical datasets : Enter LONGTERM in the command line.
    You will get the list of all views associated with Long-term historical datasets.
