After entering the MONSET command (or selecting option E), we navigate to the
screen shown in Figure 5-12.
Figure 5-12 Monitor settings (option E or the MONSET command)
The Initial settings correspond to the monitor commands that were
uncommented from the PROFILE EXEC prior to invoking the PERFKIT
MODULE. They do not include the enabling of the USER EVENT that was
needed to display the system transaction statistics. As with system settings (the
SYSSET command), the monitor event scheduler must be enabled in order to
see the monitor settings changes in the bottom part of the display.
