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.

Hello,

It may help if you post a bit of what you are looking for as output.

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.

The current process is two steps

1) Sort to create the SMF record weekly archive (+1)

2) Input +1 to IFASMFDP to get only the summary activity report of individual record type record counts (OUTDD is dummied so only the report is created).

My thought is step 2 could be eliminated if I could get SORT to create the report. (I am told the report is an audit requirement).

Assuming you need the first sort to put the records into TIME/DATE sequence, a second pass of the records would be required to list record counts by type.

I'd say don't mess with it since the IFASMFDP also shows from/to date range and more.
