Hi All,

My job (job A) is triggered by a dummy ps. I need to find the arrival time of this PS. In most of the cases arrival time of the PS and job start time are same, but some cases i find that there is delay for the job to start even after the arrival of dummy PS. So i cant take it granted that job start time and dummy ps arrival time are same.I cant do a listcat of the PS as this dummy ps gets deleted when the job A is trigerred.
One way to find the arrival time is going to CA-7 and executing a LCTLG command to get the time.

Is there any other way to get the ps arrival time other than going to CA-7??

Thank you,

Check the SMF 14/15 records for when the file was created.

Robert,

Thank you so much for suggestion.
could you please give some more details about how do we check SMF 14/15 records? Or could you please suggest some help materials? I have never tried to access SMF record, so i dont have any idea about that.

Thank you,

You need to speak to your sysprogs to find out where the SMF data is kept at your site.

I would look at type 61 records - I believe these easier to use than 14/15

HERE is a link to the SMF book.

Contact your site support group and find out if your site is running one of the SMF analysis tools such as MXG or MICS. If so, you merely need access to the appropriate MXG or MICS datasets and pull out your jobs. If not, reading SMF records can be challenging as they are bit-oriented (so one byte may hold 8 flags) and require (in some cases) correlating records to get all the data together.
