CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES:
VSAM Components and Evolution
The components and types of VSAM datasets.
Identify the performance areas that need to be managed.
The concepts of splits, where to find splits statistics, and what to do with splits.
Create a KSDS and load it with data.
Code a program which will cause splits.
Determine the number of CA and CI splits and undertake the effort to improve its implementation on the existing program.
The Cluster on the Disk
