Create Maps for SMF 132 in HLV for Connect Direct Statistics

We want to utilize the Db2 Analytics Accelerator Loader for z/OS to load the SMF data into the Accelerator. All the needed maps exist in HLV except for SMF 132 for the Connect Direct Statistics. This is necessary data for the security analysis and monitoring of data transferred from one system to another across all of our test systems. If the SMF map for Connect Direct is built, we will be able to leverage this IBM product over another product. Users across all our test systems are within the scope of this security monitoring.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? As a customer, we will be able to benefit form the use of a SMF132 Connect Direct mapping in HLV
How should it work?

The Connect Direct record uses the SMFWTM macro DGA$CTR to create the copybook. We use the CT record for Copy Termination within that data.

Documentation from the link below should aid in creating a copybook (mapping) for the SMF132, specifically the CT record
