Issue/Introduction

Planning to move SMF MAN data sets to Log stream. Currently ACF2 reports(like ACFRPTRV) can use SYSx.MAN datasets directly . Is there a way ACF2 reports can use log streams?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

ACF2 reports can easily use the logstream. You simply replace the RECMAN1 dd statement with the logstream name instead of the SYS1.MAN#. Below is an example of doing this:

//STEP2 EXEC PGM=ACFRPTDS,REGION=0M
//RECMAN1 DD DSN=IFASMF.XE61.STREAM,DISP=SHR,SUBSYS=(LOGR,IFASEXIT)
//*RECMAN1 DD DSN=SYS1.MAN1,DISP=SHR
//*RECMAN2 DD DSN=SYS1.MAN2,DISP=SHR
//*RECMAN3 DD DSN=SYS1.MAN3,DISP=SHR
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
LIDMASK(USER03)

This can also be done using the ISPF panels.
