SMARTENDPOINT is an optional parameter that can be used in the ACF2 ACFRPTVN report to designate a 'smart end point' value. This value is specified as hhmm, and results in a time that is calculated which designates when to stop browsing the SMF logstream records. By default(if SMEP not specified) logstream records are read all the way to the end before completing. When specifying a SMARTENDPOINT value, sites can choose to stop reading logstream records at a designated point rather than the end of the logstream which can reduce processing time.
From the ACFRPTNV panel hhmm can be coded in the panel field:
SmartEndPoint ===> hhmm HHMM 0000 -0200
The DD for an SMF datastream supports a new SMEP (SmartEndPoint) parm in part 2 of the SUBSYS parameter when using the IFASEXIT processing exit. ACFRPTNV batch JCL example using SMARTENDPOINT SMEP parameter follows:
//REPORT EXEC PGM=ACFRPTNV
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//RECMAN1 DhD DSN=sys2.STREAM,DISP=SHR,
//SYSIN DD *
