Issue/Introduction



Are there any SMF type records which can be turned on in order to gather CA Gen SMF data for reporting purposes?

Environment

CA GEN release 8.6

Resolution

CA Gen does not create any SMF records from within generated applications or IT, HE, etc.
 
The CA GEN product does call licensing routines in CA Common Services, and these may write an audit record.
But, those records would not contain any information of interest.

By the same token, CA GEN generated applications will create all the standard IBM SMF records – 4s, 5s, 110s in CICS if monitoring is on, etc. These records are covered by the IBM SMF documentation.
