Hello, I would like to know if there is any IBM software to extract the SMF logs? Some Utility to facilitate extracting some records, such as 30.

Thank you

Best regards

DFSORT might be able to help you. See : ruifeio.com/2015/04/22/how-to-create-an-smf-report-using-dfsort-icetool/ which provides an example for type 80 records but the thread also refers to type 30.

Garry.

Hi Garry,

thanks for your support.

Currently we perform the extraction of SMF data with SORT or ICETOOL, but we would like to know if there is a software dedicated exclusively to the extraction of SMF records.

The only other software I'm aware of is MXG from Merrill Consultants which requires Base SAS. See: www.mxg.com/

IBM do supply a tool to work with SMF data, but I can't for the life of me recall what it's called, but it is documented in the SMF manuals

IFASMFDP. It is hard to control, and all it does is extract SMF records. It does not analyze their contents. For that you need tools like MXG or DAF, or you have to write your own.

Depending on your system setup there is IFASMFDP or IFASMFDL (for Logstream) to be used.
