Hi!

We have been assigned a task that requires that the contents of SMF data be provided on Flat Files so that some tool extracts it and then analyses to give reports( In House developed tool). I ve not done this before. We generally take SMF data on Data Sets with DSORG=PO and then use in house tools to generate required reports. Please guide me if SMF MAN datasets can be offloaded PS? If no how can the tool possibly read contents of MAN datasets.

SMF information can be found HERE

I would speak with the people responsible for the SMF data before attempting to do anything, as they may already dump the data to provide you the PO format datasets.

PO (partitioned organization) format means a PDS! Are you putting SMF data into a PDS member?

Actually it's a PS in VBS format. The requirement is that this data set can not be openend due to the record length. Do we need some sort of COBOL/ PL/I or SAS code to extract all the data available in the unloaded dataset.

to be more clear. we have the man data sets which are offloaded using IFASMFDP to a data set called IPOSAV.IBMMVS.SMFDUMP... we already generate reports using some in house developed tools that gives us stats on DASD usage, User vs time, TAPE usage etc. Now the requirement is that we need to format the IPOSAV.IBMMVS.SMFDUMP data in such a way that the entire content is given in a readable format so that it can be picked up by a tool developed by the company where i am employed and then generate reports like Tivoli products.

Any help or Hint ll help me a lot. Thanks

SAS has no problems with reading raw SMF data in VBS format.
