SMF record issue

Postby jaggz » Tue Oct 26, 2010 8:46 pm

Hi,

We were planning for SMF plain performance report. While running the JCL i got a Severity Code of 016 in the statement. Spool says that SMFIN offloaded records were not found. Though we have stored the SMFREC dataset in LPAR.

SYS1.ZOSB.SMREC - >>>>>>>>>>>>>> this record was not executing after the EXTR exec . The condition code was = 016. Usually the SMFREC(offloaded) Would be a generic dataset. To check in 3.4 option, i was not able to open this dataset = SYS1.ZOSB.SMFREC .

Below is JCL which we ran and got the Severity Code of 016.

Hello,

You need to post all of the diagnostic information generated by the run. . .

Somewhere, there is an explanation of the condition code 0016.

DD statements do not cause condition codes - EXEC statements cause condition codes.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

since You are using CP2000 which is an IBM internal only tool
there are two alternatives ...

1) You are an IBM employee
2) You are using CP2000 after an agreement with IBM

in both cases issues on the CP2000 usage should be addressed to IBM!
in case (1) Your tutor
in case (2) the SE responsible for technical support of Your site or as an alternative to your salesdroid

Why couldn't you open SYS1.ZOSB.SMFREC? Most SMF data sets are RECFM=VBS, which ISPF can't handle. If that's the reason, well ... Even if ISPF could open the data set, most likely you couldn't do very much with the data; it's mostly binary data.

The comment you added to the SMFIN DD statement really doesn't make any sense.

Specifying PDS data sets for output as you have done is extremely risky. If the program opens and closes them one at a time it's safe, othwerwise data will likely be corrupted.

DATE=(09/13/94) doesn't make much sense. I know nothing about CP2000 beyond what I have read here, but if this parameter is specifying a date as selection criteria for SMF records to process, I suspect there are no records with that date in your input.

I very well know that the SMF record formats are VB . Problem is here that the SMFIN Input dataset was not readable by us(Our own racfid) in the program not in real sense of opening(Got to know via the Spool). Since we executed this JCL from our own ID.Is it a problem with our ID that it does'nt have the previlege to Read during execution or else can make the Job card to be specific to $IBMUSER..

Either you don't know very well or you made a typo. . . :)

These are not VB - they are VBS.

Do you now have the output you wanted?
Hope this helps,

apology for the wrong representation.


The only change i made here was SORT =NO.... the condition code was 012. A small thought should i be changing the record format from VB to FB ?????

The output is

again...
why do You refuse to ask IBM?
it would be certainly the fastest way to get out of Your issue

Its resolved now. It was Just the Some SMF record intervals were missing, which were not important for our analysis.
