Issue/Introduction

If a Subsystem Analyzer for DB2 for z/OS (PSA) datastore is requested by technical support for analysis,
the following is sample JCL that should be used to copy the 2 VSAM datasets into sequential datasets.

Environment

Release: 20.0
Component: PSA

Resolution

The following sample JCL contains the correct block size and record length parameters for the sequential output datasets.
Once the sequential files have been created they can be PACKed using IBM's AMATERSE utility and sent via FTP in binary format for analysis.
