The parameter "SMF Record Number", specifies the record number for SMF logging. It is found in the Operational Parameter section of the SMRT table.
To setup TPX for SMF logging,
- TPX must be APF-Authorized for performance data to be written to the SMF dataset.
- Specify a number between 128-255 to log SMF records and restart TPX.
If you specify a non-zero value and set the SMF logging interval to zero, TPX will write start-up, shutdown, and session start/stop SMF records, but WILL NOT write interval records
- To set the SMF logging interval, it is located in the Timing Parameters of the the SMRT table.
- To suppress SMF logging, set the SMF Record Number to zero and restart TPX. If you change the SMF record number to zero after start-up and then reload the SMRT, TPX continues to write records to the SMF log with a record number of zero.
