This document will explain the procedure for activating the Metrics function for the TSO/ISPF interface.


  1. Find an unused SMF type between 128 and 255

  2. Assign that value to the SMFTYPE initialization parameter by running the SARINIT job with SMFTYPE=value This will store the value in the View database.

  3. Add the SARSMPT program name to the TSO Authorization Table found in the IKJTSOxx member of SYS1.PARMLIB. The SARSMFT program name must be added to the AUTHTSF section.
