It might be needed to get the information of how many of the PTKTDATA profile records are being used, so this article aim to create a guide on how to do it, since this information is not stored on ACF2 databases.
Release : 16.0
Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS
To get this information, the solution has two steps:
Since the information will be gathered only while the SECTRACE is active, to have a better idea on which PTKTDATA profile records are being used, it is advisable to have the SECTRACE active for a long period of time and/or for different times of the day.
To restrict the type of data SECTRACE will collect, the parameter CLASS=PTKTDATA will be used.
Setting up a SECTRACE
From the console, issue the following command:
where iiii1 should be a name of your choice.
This will generate a WTOR like this:
*0003 CAS21A0I SPECIFY RACROUTE PARAMETERS, CANCEL, OR END
and the reply should be:
To stop the SECTRACE, issue the following console command:
By default, the SECTRACE data will be recorded on active SMF dataset. For more information about SECTRACE options, please refer to Trace SAF Requests document.
Running the ACFRPTST Utility
This is a sample job to run ACFRPTST:
//REPORT EXEC PGM=ACFRPTST //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* //RECMAN1 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN1 //RECMAN2 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN2 //RECMAN3 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN3 //SYSIN DD * TITLE(SAMPLE ACFRPTST) DETAIL ASID(****) /*
RECMAN1, RECMAN2 and RECMAN3 DDs should be the SMF datasets. The console command D SMF can be issued to make sure which are the SMF dataset names.
The generated report will be stored on the SYSPRINT DD.
