Currently user-defined layout is supported in ACCOUNTING with REPORT and TRACE subcommand, but not supported in SAVE and FILE subcommand.
The pain point is when the SMF 101 volume is extremely large, say 200 million records per day, the ACCOUNTING SAVE CONVERT processing time is significant. The benefit with this new support is, PDB (performance database) users can select subset of fields they wish to monitor, and could greatly reduce the CPU time because less fields need to be processed.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||any user can benefit the CPU saving if subset of fields are needed in their monitoring practice|
How should it work?
In OMPE ISPF panel, add new panel, similar to those in < 5 Customize report and trace layouts>, to allow user to include or exclude fields. The new customization procedure should generate two control cards:
