QMF standards

QMF standards
Hello everyone. I've been tasked with writing
standards/procedures for administering QMF in our
production environment. I have many ideas and past
experience, but it would sure help if I had a head-
start and I don't want to miss anything. It's been
givin' out carte blanche before my reign and it's
killing us! Anyone willing to share their doc.?

Thanks,

Hi Alison,

Stuff you might want to consider:

1) Set up fairly low QMF Governor limits for interactive use, but fairly
high for QMF Batch.
2) Publish standard JCL for running QMF in batch and/or make sure the Batch
QMF command works.
3) Create a RACF group which is the only ID that has the ability to run the
QMF plan.
4) Establish a 'register for QMF' process that:
a) adds the requester's ID to the RACF group above
b) create a database and tablespace for their saved data
c) update their QMF profile to use it!
5) Sweep through the QMF objects occasionally, removing anything not
accessed in x days.
6) Develop a weekly/monthly 'Top 10 QMF CPU users' report and distribute
widely. Other reports will come to mind (like who's got the most 'saved
data' tables).
7) Patrol the QMF users' area with a sub-machinegun and a menacing look,
clearly displaying your 'I hate big QMF CPU users' T-shirt (which probably
came from CDB).

These things are a good start to grabbing QMF by the scruff of the neck and
taming the beast.
