We have coded an SMF record flooding filter for ACF2 SMF record (type 230).
When a big job runs (change 50.000 users), after the 20.000th statement approx, a SMF record flood occurs.
Then ACF2 wrote ACF0B901 messages in the System log (30.000 records approx).
Does ACF2 support SMF record flood ?
Release : 16.0
Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS
ACF2 does not support SMF record flooding.
When SMF is unable to write the SMF record due to flooding limit (too many records written)
it returns a reason code to ACF2.
ACF2 puts out an error message to the syslog.
ACF0B901ACF2, SMF UNAVAILABLE, RETURN CODE = ret
The System Management Facility (SMF) is not available for CA ACF2 use.
The return code (ret) is from the IBM SMFWTM macro.
Consult the appropriate IBM publication for an explanation of the SMFWTM return code shown in the message text.
Report this error immediately to your system maintenance personnel because it indicates that CA ACF2 cannot write a security-related SMF record.
