Question:

What is involved to go from 1 Audit and Tracking File (ATF) to 2 ATFs?

Answer:

To go from 1 ATF to 2 ATFs: 

1) Allocate a second ATF (run TSSMAINA job in the CAKOJCL0 library with ID=AUDIT2). Many sites use low level qualifiers of AUDIT (for the first ATF) and AUDIT2 (for the second ATF). 

2) Specify 2 DD statements in the TSS startup proc for the 2 audit files as follows: 

//AUDIT DD DISP=SHR,DSN=tss.audit.file (ATF with ID=AUDIT) 

//AUDIT2 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=tss.audit2.file (ATF with ID=AUDIT2) 

3) Recycle TSS either with a temporary shutdown and restart, or an IPL. 

 

Some additional information when running with 2 ATFs: 

a) When TSS starts, there should be a message: 

TSS9207I The INITIAL AUDIT/TRACKING OUTPUT FILE IS dddddddd 

where 'dddddddd' is the identifier of the audit file (ie AUDIT or AUDIT2).

 

b) When one of the ATFs fills up, there should be a message: 

TSS9203I SWITCHED TO AUDIT/TRACKING OUTPUT FILE dddddddd 

where 'dddddddd' is the identifier of the audit file (ie AUDIT or AUDIT2).
