zSPM reviews the DASD periphery of a DB2 z/OS systems and its datasets. The goals are:

• Data collection for an improved capacity planning
• Securing production availability
• Alerts in case of shortages / potential errors
• Automated action in case of shortages / potential errors / superfluous datasets
• Hints for possible savings

Beside critical situations zSPM pinpoints potential savings. Examples are:
  • Active Pages of a tablespace or an index are much smaller then the allocated DASD space, e.g. primary allocation is too big
  • DASD pools are over-allocated.
