Background:    

CA EARL is a free common component that is installed with CA Roscoe that will allow you to generate reports from the CA Roscoe Accounting Files. 7 Sample Earl reports are provided that cover 7 different areas.

To produce reports from the CA Roscoe Accounting records, use the EARLJOB JCL, supplied in the Roscoe SAMPJCL dataset and customize it and run it with one of the supplied EARL sample jobs.

There is a list all the sample EARL reports supplied with CA Roscoe. They are in the SAMPJCL dataset.

  1. AWS statistics (EARLAWS)
  2. CA Roscoe component statistics (EARLRSR)
  3. CA Roscoe usage activity information (EARLROSC)
  4. Monitor command and ETSO usage information (EARLMON)
  5. RPS (CA-Roscoe Printing Services) usage information. (EARLRPS)
  6. RTM (Response-Time Monitor) statistics (EARLRTM)
  7. RPF (CA-Roscoe Programming Facility) program execution Statistics (EARLRPF)

NOTE: The actual names of the reports are in parenthesis

Instructions:

  • In the STEPLIB, specify both the CA Earl and CA Roscoe load libraries. (The CA Roscoe load library contains ROSEARL which is a required CA Earl input exit.)
  • Execute ACCTDUMP to produce the OUTPUT1 file which is then input into the EARLROSC step. This is specified as the ROSFILE DD as seen in the JCL below.
  • In the EARLJOB JCL, replace
//SYSIN    DD  *
  Place the CA-EARL accounting program here...

with

//SYSIN    DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=ROSCOE.SAMPJCL(REPORTNAME)

Additional Information:

If you need information that is not in one of the supplied reports, you will need to create your own report starting with one of the sample EARL reports and referring to EARLDEF in SAMPJCL which defines the layout of the Roscoe accounting records that are used as input to CA Earl.

For more information, see Chapter 2. Accounting Maintenance Programs, of the CA Roscoe Program and Utilities Guide r6 and the CA Earl Reference Guide.
