Issue/Introduction

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

The format of the type 231 SMF records is not documented as they are mainly intended for product internal usage.  

The STATG records themselves are just a series of print formatted records directly recorded as is in the SMF records.  

Here is a snippet of the actual content of the STATG type 231 records:

CA Top Secret Security       SYSPLEX                 Number of writes:                                       0
CA Top Secret Security       CACHE                   Max size of cache:                                  60000
CA Top Secret Security       CMDSTATS                CREATE:                   0                              
CA Top Secret Security       CPF                     XE56    INBD CMDS PROCESSED:                            0
CA Top Secret Security       CPF                     XE14    INBD CMDS PROCESSED:                            0
CA Top Secret Security       IOSTATS                 Number of RACINITS                                    342
CA Top Secret Security       RACROUTE                RACROUTE REQUEST = AUDIT                                0
CA Top Secret Security       SECCACHE                Maximum size of cache data area:               2147483648

We document the mapping of the 231 records via four distributed elements:

CAKOJCL0(S231DESC) - describes the format of the SMF 231 records to make the macro usage easier to understand

CAKOMAC0(#SMF80) - describes the format of the base type 80 record (which is the same base used for the type 231 records)

CAKOMAC0(TSSSMFOX) - describes the format of the type 231 record extension

CAKOSRC0(S231ASSM) - sample JCL which can be used to generate the mapping for the type 231 records

Review these mapping members and use them to examine the type 231 records in the SMF data store.
