We have an RDT - Mainframe Emulator - running on Linux

SMF logging is not happening in RDT now; We know that below procedure can initiate SMF logging, but not sure is that enough - Pls correct

To initiate SMF logging; need to re-configure the exit routine to call SMFDUMPS instead of SMCLEAR and re-IPL the system for changes to take effect

Steps Involved
1. Edit the exit routine IEFU29 to change occurrences of string SMFCLEAR to SMFDUMPS
2. Assemble or link edit the load module by using the JCL IEFU29@
3. Re-IPL the system << GDG base SYS1.SMF.DATA get allocated (SMFGDG)>>

Step #1 - is that enough? And later to turn off SMF logs - will put SMFCLEAR back ??

You must review parmlib member SMFPRM00.
Do you really mean SMF log, which indicates using a logger structure, or just plain old SMF dump datasets?
