Question & Answer
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.
For Syncpoint records I believe I should use:
Again, I get no data returned in my List report with a RC=0. Can anyone who knows how to do this please advise?
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:
The 3 spaces come before the T and S in the above examples.
