We want to carry out an history of all the Sort or/and Merge control statements used on our production Jobs.
This will help us to remove many same sortings.
I don't see this information on the SMF record 16.
Is there somebody who already had this rquirement ?
Why do you think control cards would be recorded in SMF records?
You have all the source statements somewhere. You have all the source statements, with translation if required (for symbols), in the sysout for each step.
Might it not be better to approach this in a different way? Find largest datasets, and use your Scheduler to following them through? Then, while investigation what it is of that process that you can automate, you also get some payback from the largest files first.
