Subtype 40 — Boost information

A subtype 40 record is created when boosts start and end.

  • No SMF record is created if the IPL boost was never activated.
  • There is no SMF record produced when recovery process boosts are extended, only when they are started or ended.
  • A recovery process boosts end record can occur after multiple recovery process boosts, if there was overlap.
  • If a record spans events of multiple boost classes, the earliest boost class (IPL or recovery process) is used.

Offsets Name Length Format Description
0   SMF90T40_ETOD 16 binary Time of boosts end, in STCKE format.
16 10 SMF90T40_Event 4 binary The boost event. Valid values are:
1
IPL boosts start
2
IPL boosts end
3
Shutdown boosts start
4
Shutdown boosts end
5
Recovery process boosts start
6
Recovery process boosts end
Start of change7 (SMF90T40_Event_RPB_EnabDisab)End of change
Start of changeRecovery process boosts have either been enabled or disabled. In addition to SMF90T40_Event and SMF90T40_BoostLevel, bit SMF90T40_RPB_Disabled is valid.End of change
Start of change8 (SMF90T40_Event_RPBoosts_Info)End of change
Start of changeRecovery process boosts updated usage information. In addition to SMF90T40_Event and SMF90T40_BoostLevel, the fields with names beginning SMF90T40_RPB_Duration are the valid ones. The record for this event is written approximately every 24 hours when on a machine that supports recovery process boosts, unless BOOST=NONE is in effect. It provides information about how much recovery process boost time was used since the last writing of the record, and how much could have been used if not for the duration limit per 24-hour period. When being written, the first record is written approximately at the time that the pool of boost time is replenished (if that can be determined) or 24 hours after the end of IPL boost or 24 hours after determining that there were no IPL boosts.End of change
20 14 SMF90T40_NUMTransientzIIPCores 76 binary Number of zIIP cores configured online due to zIIP boost (and configured offline upon boost end).
22 16 SMF90T40_Flags0 1 binary Flags:
Bit
Meaning when set
0 (SMF90T40_zIIPBoost_Active)
For the "boosts end" events, the zIIP boost was active. For the "boosts start" event, the zIIP boost is active.
1 (SMF90T40_SpeedBoost_Active)
For the "boosts end" events, the speed boost was active. For the "boosts start" event, the speed boost is active.
2 (SMF90T40_zIIP_Boost_EndedByError)
The system encountered an error and had to end the zIIP boost (the speed boost was not affected by the error). Applies only to the "boosts end" events.
3 (SMF90T40_SpeedBoost_EndedByError)
The system encountered an error and had to end the speed boost. Applies only to the “boosts end” events.
4 (SMF90T40_RPBoosts_Last_EndedByError)
The system encountered an error and had to end the last (most recent) recovery process boosts. Applies only to the "boosts end" events.
5 - 7 (SMF90T40_BoostClass)
Boost class:
  • 001: IPL
  • 010: Shutdown
  • 011: Recovery process
Note: The boost class value is valid only when one or more boosts is active; that is, a boost active bit is also on.
23 17 SMF90T40_Flags1 1 binary Flags:
Bit
Meaning when set
0 (SMF90T40_Boosts_EndedByTimer)
All IPL boosts were ended. The time limit was reached. Applies only to the "boosts end" events.
1 (SMF90T40_Boosts_EndedByPgm)
The customer activated a program to end the IPL boost (the normal method to activate this program is using the IEABE PROC). The system ends whichever boosts were active. Applies only to the "boosts end" events.
2 (SMF90T40_Boosts_EndedBySD)
The IPL or recovery process boosts were ended because shutdown began. Applies only to the "IPL boosts end" and "recovery process boosts end" events.
3 (SMF90T40_Boosts_EndedByError)
The system encountered an error and ended whichever boosts were active. Applies only to the "boosts end" events.
