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=your.system.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.

The DISPLAY SMF STATUS (D SMF,S) console command can be used to display the information about SMF data sets and log streams status.
