Perform TCP/IP tailoring of HiperSockets and guest Local Area Networks (LAN) in support of Linux guest systems. Explore the configuration of Multiple Protocol Routing (MPROUTE) to support dynamic routing in the z/VM TCP/IP environment, the installation and configuration of RealTime Monitor (RTM), the Performance Toolkit for VM, and Programmable Operator for the system management of the z/VM environment.

This course is suitable for Open system administrators and z/OS system programmers new to z/VM or ESA/VM responsible for the implementation and management of TCP/IP and the z/VM system in support of Linux guest systems.


  • Use the OBEYFILE command to reconfigure the TCP/IP environment
  • Define HiperSockets and guest LANs for TCP/IP
  • Discuss the benefits of dynamic routing versus static routing
  • Describe the purpose of the MPROUTE server in the TCP/IP environment
  • Configure TCP/IP in support of guest LANs for z/VM and Linux
  • Configure the MPROUTE server for z/VM
  • Implement the multiple TCP/IP stack environment on z/VM
  • Define and save the monitor Discontiguous Saved Segment (DCSS)
  • Collect Monitor data using the MONITOR and MONWRITE commands
  • Install and configure the mfpms
  • Configure the performance toolkit for VM
  • Define Programmable Operator facilities for z/VM to trap for messages and implement task based upon those messages
  • Use OBSERVER and CP SET commands to manage disconnected service machines.
