Selecting a destination for zERT aggregation SMF records
If you enable zERT aggregation, then you can decide where you want the collected data to be written as SMF 119 subtype 12 records. By default, the SMF records are not written anywhere, so you must choose one of the following destinations in order to get the SMF records.
- If you want the zERT summary (SMF 119 subtype 12) records to be written to the z/OS® System Management Facility, specify the SMFCONFIG ZERTSUMMARY parameter in the TCP/IP profile data set. Note: You must also enable the recording of SMF 119 records, and enable interval record processing, in your SMF parmlib member.Note: If you want to use IBM® zERT Network Analyzer, you must specify the SMFCONFIG ZERTSUMMARY parameter in the TCP/IP profile data set.
- If you use a network management application that consumes zERT summary SMF records through the
real-time zERT Summary NMI service, specify the NETMONITOR ZERTSUMMARY parameter in the TCP/IP
profile data set. When this service is active, network management applications with the necessary
SAF permission can connect to the service to receive zERT summary SMF records in near
real-time.Note: You must also enable interval record processing in your SMF parmlib member.
