Giving meaningful names in UIE
UIE follows some internal rules to give names to information found in the SMF data. For a user it is possible to give more meaningful names, here are some examples for often used areas.
Per default the PSYS command generates the following name for a physical system:
where nnnn is the last four digits of the CPU serial number
Most customers would like to see an internal well known name instead. This is possible by specifying:
PSYS CECSOUTH SER=nnnn
PSYS CECNORTH SER=mmmm
nnnn and mmmm are the last four characters from the CPU serial number of the two physical systems.
The name for a storage subsystem will be the manufacturers serial number. So, in a graph a customer will just see a number like 00010763. Note: This information comes from the RMF record 74 subtype 5, so this record should be in the input data. Using the STORSUBSYS command it is possible to give meaningful names like:
STORSUBSYS IBMBOX SER=00010763
STORSUBSYS EMCBOX SER=00011534
For a Workload UIE uses also some defaults. A Workload name is based on the Service Class. To rename use the following:
WKL BATCHLOW SCL=B_L
WKL BATCHMED SCL=B_M
WKL BATCHHIG SCL=B_H
So e. g. the Service Class B_L responsible to low priority batch will show up as BATCHLOW in the graphs.
