Storage Management Automation and Reporting System

FDSO

FAST DATASET ORGANIZER (FDSO) integrates and extends the power of SEA’s fastPack components (pdsfast/fmo, fastVSAM, and fastGENR) to offer a comprehensive, rules-based DASD management and reporting solution for all types of data sets in SMS, non-SMS, and mixed environments.

The combination of an extremely flexible control language and a rich set of operators presents a wide range of management possibilities.

FDSO can be used to automate many large, routine jobs completely, as well as to make small modifications or ad-hoc inquiries easily.

Features of FDSO

Reallocation facility

FDSO reallocates VSAM and non-VSAM files, incrementally reclaiming wasted space on an active volume (saving more than 30% of DASD utilization). FDSO also produces exception reports related to incorrect data set name, size, placement, utilization, and catalog error checking/diagnosis.

Intuitive Control Language

FDSO offers a powerful control language that allows a user to select either large quantities of data or small unique datasets, with intuitive control statements. Dataset selection can be based on any combination of over one hundred different datasets, volume and SMS attributes, including maskable name, location, size, DCB characteristics, time, etc. If a user specifies general selection criteria, all datasets matching those criteria are automatically processed by FDSO.

Data Set Reporting

FDSO offers a full spectrum of reports that provide detailed information about the current state of selected data sets in easy-to-read formats. With a single FDSO execution, a user can obtain comprehensive dataset reports that would typically require running several utilities to collect and format the data. With the powerful selection facility, users can easily tailor FDSO standard reports or create their own reports to meet specific needs.
