Question:  

How do you run the ACFRPTIX-Data Set Index Report in batch? Is there sample JCL?

Answer:  

CA-ACF2 provides a sample report named REPORTS in ACF2.SAMPJCL - this JCL will run ACFRPTPP (preprocessor) and then many of the standard report programs. Sample JCL to only run one report program is not included in the ACF2.SAMPJCL library. The ACFRPTIX report parameters can be specified using one of these methods:

The PARM parameter of the EXEC statement in the JCL or SYSIN input statements.

The ACFRPTIX report uses standard CA-ACF2 report JCL like the following for batch submission two examples.

Example 1 Using PARM statement for report parameters.

  //REPORT  EXEC PGM=ACFRPTST,PARM=('TITLE(SAMPLE ACFRPTIX)', 
  //       'DETAIL,PREFIX(SYS*)') 
  //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* 
  //* THE FOLLOWING DDS SHOULD POINT TO THE SMF DATASETS 
  //RECMAN1  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN1 
  //RECMAN2  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN2 
  //RECMAN3  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN3 
  //* 

Example 2 Using SYSIN file for report parameters.

  //REPORT  EXEC PGM=ACFRPTIX 
  //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* 
  //HEXDUMP  DD SYSOUT=* 
  //DETAIL   DD SYSOUT=* 
  //* THE FOLLOWING DDS SHOULD POINT TO THE SMF DATASETS 
  //RECMAN1  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN1 
  //RECMAN2  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN2 
  //RECMAN3  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN3 
  //SYSIN    DD   * 
  TITLE(SAMPLE ACFRPTIX) 
  DETAIL 
  PREFIX(SYS*) 
  //* 

DD statements
RECxxxxx
These ddnames identify the files containing the input SMF records. ACFRPTIX accepts one SMF input file per ddname. Do not concatenate SMF input files.

SYSPRINT
ACFRPTIX uses the SYSPRINT file for message and summary report output.
