Question:

Where does CA TLMS obtain the volume error stats?

Answer:

CA TLMS acquires the volume error stats from the IBM SMF 21 records. The following will cross reference the SMF 21 record with CA TLMS volume record.

 

  • TLMS TEMP READ ERROR  = IBM SMF21TR -  Number of temporary read errors                   

          

  • TLMS TEMP WRITE ERROR  = IBM SMF21TW  - Number of temporary write errors 

       

  • TLMS PERM READ ERROR = IBM SMF21PR -Number of permanent read errors. 

       

  • TLMS PERM WRITE ERROR = IBM SMF21PW - Number of permanent write errors.

     

  • TLMS ERASE GRAPS  = IBM SMF21ERG - Number of erase gaps.

  

  • TLMS READ BACKWARD = IBM SMF21TRB - Temporary read backward errors.

 

  •  TLMS TEMP READ FORWARD = IBM SMF21TRF -Temporary read forward errors.
Additional Information:

You can report on these stats via the CA TLMS Earl report TLERPT05. This report is located at hlq.CTAPEARL(TLERPT05).
