|IBM course code: ES20G||Category: z/OS / System Programming|
|Delivery: Online & on-site**||Course length in days: 4.5|
The primary audience for this intermediate course are z/OS system programmers who are new to z/OS installation, customization, measurement and tuning, or problem determination. Subsystem programmers will also benefit from this class.
You should be able to:
- Describe the following z/OS BCP (MVS) characteristics:
- virtual storage and paging
- and multiple address space/data space architecture
- Explain how paging and swapping are accomplished through the interaction of real/central, expanded, auxiliary, and virtual storage in a z/OS system
- Explain the role of the dispatcher, interrupts, SVCs, the program manager, and serialization in managing work in a z/OS system
- State the role of z/OS software and hardware components in handling an I/O request for data on a direct access storage device
These prerequisites can be met through on the job training or completion of z/OS Facilities.
Note: A fundamental knowledge of hexadecimal notation, assembler language, and z/Architecture instruction execution will enhance your understanding of the course material. Completion of Assembler Language Coding Workshop or Assembler Language Series is recommended.
The great majority of the IBM courses we offer are taught directly by our engineers. This is the only way we can guarantee the highest quality. We complement all the training with our own materials and laboratories, based on our experience during the deployments, migrations and courses that we have carried out during all these years.
Our courses are deeply role oriented. To give an example, the needs for technology mastery are different for developer teams and for the people in charge of deploying and managing the underlying infrastructure. The level of previous experience is also important and we take it very seriously. That is why beyond (boring) commands and tasks, we focus on solving the problems that arise in the day to day of each team. Providing them with the knowledge, competencies and skills required for each project. In addition, our documentation is based on the latest version of each product.
