ACC allows datasets to be created using existing naming
conventions and characterics while warning of potential errors
during the transition to new standards.
ACCs extensive SMF recording, messaging, simulation,
and logging facilities make it easy to track and report violations
while allowing JCL to be modified on-the-fly to
meet installation requirements.
ACC can make the datasets go where you want! Whether it is
directing small tape files to DASD, establishing disk pools,
migrating to new device types, or selecting volumes for use
based on performance characteristics or space availability,
ACC can place datasets where they are best suited, without
the need for users to change JCL or programs.
ACS tracing allows users to answer the question Why
is this dataset on this volume? by providing a line-by-line
trace of the logic used by the DFSMS ACS routines to assign
ACC doesnt stop with improving standards enforcement
or controlling dataset creation. Storage and database administrators
can benefit from extensions designed to make system-managed
storage easier to use.
algorithm eliminates the need to use guaranteed-space storage classes
to place performance-sensitive SMS-managed datasets such as
