Does Datacom cut SMF 89 records? If not, what record type should we be going after for Datacom usage? 


Datacom doesn't cut any SMF record. 


Datacom can provide SMF statistics, but for DBUTLTY jobs only, not for MUF or for application jobs. 

This is controlled by a parameter named SMFRTY in the Datacom Master List module, also called DBMSTLST. This parameter specifies the System Management Facilities (SMF) record type. When you specify a nonzero value, CA Datacom/DB writes SMF records for DBUTLTY only. Valid Entries for this parameter are 0 or an integer value from 128 through 255. The default value is 0, which indicates no SMF support. 


Additional Information:

The SMF record formats for DBUTLTY are defined in Appendix A, SMF Record Formats (z/OS Only) of the Database and System Administration Guide manual.
