ACF2 reports can report using SMF 230 records, but can it also use SMF 14 or SMF 15 records? If LOG is not specified in an ACF2 rule will ACF2 write SMF 230 records?


Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS


Older versions of ACF2 allowed for the specification of multiple SMF numbers in the ACFFDR for the different ACF2 reports, now all reports use the same "COMMON" SMF record as specified by ACF2=230 (230 is the default).  

To display your current SMF record number setting you can issue the TSO, ACF, SHOW SYSTEMS command. For example:

show systems                                                      
-- SYSTEM PARAMETERS IN EFFECT --                                     
ALTER SVC=233            VALIDATE SVC=232
