Error description

  • When formatting SMF 115 and 116 records using the MQ sample
    CSQ4SMFD the output from this job may return date values not
    within a valid range. Change team finds an invalid date/time
    value will be returned when the time being formatted has not
    been set (for example re: the field QCTLSTM ) yet because there
    have been no requests within the current SMF interval. Review
    of the hex print in this output (just prior to the formatted
    section) will show that the time value at offset x20 is set
    to all zero values.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * The CSQ4SMFD sample program to format MQ SMF data may        *
    * incorrectly display some date strings.                       *

    ****************************************************************
    When a "null" or zero date is found in SMF data, the internal
    date formatter routine used by CSQ4SMFD may format the date
    incorrectly. The date may be shown as the year 1900 or 2042
    depending on timezone settings.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Processing has been amended to display "null" dates as all
    zeroes. The date formatting is maintained for consistency.
