I would like to have SYNCSORT or SYNCTOOL emulate what IFASMFDP does in the Summary Activity Report (record type record counts, etc). If possible where could I find the doc - and would it be worth it performance and effort wise.
I am trying to improve on our current process where we execute a sort step followed by a IFASMFDP (OUTDD DUMMY) in order to get the report.
There is usually a good number of SMF records generated by a system; your problem may not be improving the efficiency so much as the sheer volume of data to be processed. You might want to talk to your site support group about exactly what you're trying to achieve -- they may have some ideas to help.
