IBMer Lora Powell Explains Changes to IBM i Performance Collections Starting at 6.1

Lora Powell, the lead for the Performance Tasks Gui in IBM Systems Director Navigator, sat in for Dawn May in Dawn’s i Can column in IBM Systems Magazine this month.

In this column, Lora explains the changes that were made to the IBM i Performance Collection feature starting with 6.1 and above. According to Lora:

If you are new to 6.1 or 7.1, you may not be aware that you can go to one place to see and work with all your performance collections.

When working with Performance Collections on 6.1 and beyond, some changes were made from previous releases. Along with the change in Performance Collection Tools to collect Job Watcher, Disk Watcher, Collection Services, and Performance Explorer data by the base operating system, an internal collection table was added to keep track of these collections on the system.
