z/OS system anatomy part 1 - zArchitecture

This and the associated z/OS system anatomy part 2 - z/OS infrastructure & services form the core course of the MVS systems curriculum. By attending both components, students obtain a solid foundation, enabling further study in areas such as debugging, performance, installation, and customization of MVS. In the first part, students learn the 'ground rules' of MVS, in terms of architecture, storage management, and the major MVS control blocks and how to interpret them. The major MVS components are also introduced and a high level overview of job flow processing is briefly discussed. Part I finishes by showing how an MVS system is generated and IPL'd to produce a running system.
