CA-7 - Reporting

Postby barb » Mon Mar 26, 2012 8:35 pm

Looked through the CA-7 Manuals and cannot find a report that will list jobs in the databaset that have a Submit time. I can't believe a report like this is unavailable, so I'm asking here. Has anyone found a way to list only jobs in the database that have a Submit time associated with them?

Second question, also about Reporting... we had a need to forecast jobs that use Tape Drives. The results from the FQTAPE command were not correct at all, does anyone know where CA-7 gets this information? Is this a parameter that would be updated by us first, then CA-7 can perform reporting on the number of tape drives needed etc?

Would WLB help in this situation?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Do any of the reports in the CA-7 Reports Guide manual provide what you're wanting? If not, you may need to develop your own report in CA-Earl using the CA-7 log data sets.

Thanks... I'll look into Earl. Is this answer for the Submit Time listing or the tape listing, or both?

Looks like Earl report CA7ER020, may provide the info on the tapes, however our Mainframe is outsourced and I don't think I'll have the access. Will try and put the JCL together and give it a shot, but I have to build the JCL from scratch. They aren't running reports from Earl as of now, at least on our Lpar.

Member L2EARL of the SAMPJCL library installed as part of CA-7 should have sample JCL; whether or not that JCL was customized for your site is another question!

Hi Robert,

I was able to tailor the member L2EARL and run it... I'm having trouble figuring out how to customize a report though. I see the members that list the Record types. But how do I know what type of record a SUBMIT TIME would write too?

also, if I'm customizing a report. What member name would I use instead of a REPORT ID?

CAI.CA7.CAIMAC(CA7ER020) <== do i just remove this statement, since I don't want a Pre-Defined report?

I think it would be record type 75?

SJM - CPU JOB SCHEDULE RECORD.
TYPE X'4B' (DECIMAL 75) RECORD TYPE.
