Question:

What SMF Records does MICS use?

Answer:

Determining what SMF records your MICS installation is using depends on what components you are using.  

It is very simple to tell what SMF records a component uses:

1)Look in sp.PARMS(cccSMFD)

2)These members list of all record types/subtypes used by the each MICS component that processes SMF data. 

3)ccc is SMF, RMF, DB2, etc. 

 

Here is DB2SMFD:

 *This member is provided as an example only, the CA SMF Director

*JCL should not reference sharedprefix.MICS.PARMS(DB2SMFD).     

*                                                               

*SELECT(100.000,100.001,101)                                     

 You can see that the DB2 component uses 2 record types, SMF type 100 and 101. 

The cccSMFD member shows subtypes---so, here you can see that the MICS DB2 component processes two different subtypes of the 100 record---subtype 0 and subtype 1.

 

Here is SMFSMFD:

*SELECT(0,6,7,8,9,10,11,22,23,25,26,30.001,30.002,      

*       30.003,30.004,30.005,30.006,31,33.001,43,45,    

*       89.001,89.002,90.001,90.002,90.003,90.004,      

*       90.005,90.006,90.007,90.008,90.009,90.010,      

*       90.011,90.012,90.013,90.014,90.015,90.016,      

*       90.017,90.018,90.023,90.024,90.034,90.035,      

*       90.036,90.039)                                  

 

As you can see, there are a bunch of subtypes for the type 30 and type 90.

But, from a “what record types” perspective, the answer is:

0,6,7,8,9,10,11,22,23,25,26,30,31,33,43,45,89,90

Not all MICS components process SMF data---for example IMS processes IMS log data, and VM processes VM Monitor and Account data.  Another place to look for the SMF types processed by the installed components is sharedprefix.GENLIB(COMPTDEF).  This however does not list the subtypes like the SMFD members, but has the primary SMFtype.
