SAVRS documentation is copyrighted and therefore legally is only available from the vendor.

Contact your senior team members and have them provide you with the JCL to execute $AVRTAPE. This job, also in the installation library PDS, is designed for extracting data from Archive History records using the $AVRS backup file -- NOT the KSDS or RRDS database. $AVRTAPE does take the FA (or SCAN) parameter.

//STEPLIB  DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=XXXXXXXX.YYY.$AVRS.LOADLIB     
//$AVRTAPE DD DSN=XXXXXXXX.$AVRS.XXXX.BACKUP(+0),DISP=SHR 
//*                                                         
//RSLOCAL  DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//*                                                         
//SYSDUMP  DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//SYSIN    DD  *                                           
 ONE=YES                                                   
 TYPE=AH,SD=-30,ED=*,FA='KL0K081*'

Depending upon how the backups were set up for SAVRS, an archive scan can run for a VERY long time. You may need to work with your site support group to put the job in a long running batch class.

I do not understand what this means -- you must have a parameter to execute, and from the output it looks like you're executing $AVRPULL (although I haven't done enough with $AVRTAPE to know if the same messages are generated):

yes, the same msgs are from $AVRTAPE.

I will test this $AVRTAPE on diff class to run longer.
