    The Parallel Sysplex Configuration redbooks consist of three volumes that help

    you design and configure a Parallel Sysplex. These redbooks assist you in

    making the key hardware and software choices necessary to meet your

    performance, capacity, and availability requirements.

    In addition to discussing many sysplex-related topics not documented elsewhere,

    these books contain, for the IBM large systems customer, practical information

    that has been collected from many sources and brought together into a single,

    comprehensive reference.

    The redbooks provide rules of thumb for configuring a Parallel Sysplex. They

    discuss central processing complex sizing, CF sizing, the Sysplex Timer,

    connectivity guidelines, the implications of Parallel Sysplex for IBM software

    such as OS/390 V2R8 and related subsystem configurations, and useful tools and

    services. Network, systems management and availability considerations are

    also discussed.

    These redbooks are a starting point for those involved in designing and

    configuring a Parallel Sysplex. They also may be used by those already having

    a Parallel Sysplex when further exploitation is being considered. The books

    refer to other relevant publications that cover specific areas in more depth.
