Not a programmer but need to capture the program and job names that make calls to Adabas. Calls are static so SYSVIEW doesn't capture. I'm told that an Adabas user exit could be coded but how do I capture the program and jobname?

Any other suggestions or ideas? Just capturing date/time and program name would be so helpful. Other details like command,database # and file number would also be useful.

If ADABAS generates SMF records at your shop, then you can look there.

SMF is comprehensive and thorough. So you will be able to capture all the calls made to ADABAS.

Ask your z/OS Systems programmers if you have SMF records enabled for ADABAS. Then you might want to run the SMF records through a software called SAS-MXG to generate reports - your Systems programmers or Capacity/Performance people would be able to generate reports out of SMF via MXG or other software.

Can you not do search for or use tools like insync to search a string to get the primary list ?
