Introduction: 

This document states whether or not it's possible to create a Detector batch report, referencing data currently in the process of being collected in the current interval.

Question: 

Is it possible to create a Detector batch report referencing data currently in the process of being collected in the current interval?

Environment:  

z/OS 1.11 and above.

Answer: 

The data being collected in the current interval is contained within the Xmanager address space and is not actually captured into a dataset until that interval has ended. After the current interval has ended and the data externalized, it may then be accessed through the SSID historical interval data (option 2) on the CA Detector Main Menu panel, or through a batch report execution. At the time the data is current being collected in the current interval, it is not possible to access the current interval information via a batch report execution.

An alternative would be to use the QFILE or PFILE commands from the CA Detector for DB2 for z/OS command line to capture to a dataset the desired information from the online display of SSID current interval data (option 1). The QPRINT or PPRINT commands can also be used to print the information as well.
