Separating CICS SMF 110 Termination and Syncpoint records in CICS PA List report

Question & Answer


Question

How do I separate CICS SMF 110 Termination records from Syncpoint records on a CICS Performance Analyzer for z/OS (CICS PA) List report?

I think the follow 'SELECT' statement with the Record Type (RTYPE) field option should give me all Termination records but I get no data returned in my List report with a RC=0.

   SELECT(PERFORMANCE(INC(RTYPE('T   ')))),

For Syncpoint records I believe I should use:

  SELECT(PERFORMANCE(INC(RTYPE('S   ')))),

Again, I get no data returned in my List report with a RC=0. Can anyone who knows how to do this please advise?

Answer

Here are the CICS record type (RTYPE) values for SMF 110 records:

C - Converse record (Conversational transaction terminal converse)

D - Deliver record (Deliver request at a user EMP)

F - Frequency record (Long running transaction)

S - Syncpoint record

T - Termination record (detach)

The values are of character type and right justified. Therefore you should pad the RTYPE value field with 3 spaces to get RTYPE records on your CICS PA List report. Here are two examples of the proper syntax:

 SELECT(PERFORMANCE(INC(RTYPE('   T')))),

or

 SELECT(PERFORMANCE(INC(RTYPE('   S')))),

The 3 spaces come before the T and S in the above examples.
