RE: Performance tools.



fixed

Tom,

For V5R1, here are the reference manuals for:

Best/1
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r1/ic2924/books/c4153411.pdf

Performance Tools
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r1/ic2924/books/c4153401.pdf

Best/1 is a part of Performance Tools, although it is being phased out
and its functions will be placed in iSeries Navigator.  As I recall, the
command to initiate Best/1 is STRBST.

Yes, Performance Tools does generate a lot of raw data which can be used
by other products, but it sounds like you haven't really begun to
explore the product yet to determine whether you need to do that.  As
more functionality gets moved to the PC-based Navigator, it is very
likely that GDDM will not be necessary for good graphics.

I hope this helps,
Regards,
Andy Nolen-Parkhouse
