Requesting ARS Statistical Reports

To request ARS statistical reports, complete the following procedures:

  • Request the ARS report using ARS screens
  • Run the job

    ARS screens build a job stream to produce any of the ARS reports. For this reason, the screens are most useful in cases where you need individual reports instead of volume reports.

After ARS screens build the job stream and submit it to run, the job performs the following:

  • Signs on to IBM® Connect:Direct®
  • Creates a temporary data set to hold the specified statistics
  • Accesses the IBM Connect:Direct statistics file and copies statistics to a temporary data set
  • Executes the ARS report routine using the IBM Connect:Direct statistics as input data
  • Sends the report to the selected output location
  • Deletes the temporary data set
