OMEGAMON XE for Storage offers the flexibility to monitor DASD and I/O at the level of the application. What this means is that you can use the tool to focus your I/O monitoring strategy on the most critical applications, without having the need to monitor the entire DASD complex.
The example shown here shows how you can enable Application level monitoring. To enable application monitoring you need to create a situation to invoke collection. The primary parts of the situation are the application name (which can be wildcarded to include multiple tasks), the monitor switch (Y/N), and monitor I/O option (which controls if you want data set level monitoring). Given these options you have the flexibility to control what tasks you want to gather I/O information about, and whether you need data set level I/O detail.
The picture here shows an example of how to specify the situation to control application level monitoring.
