SMF TYPE 89 Records Generated for CA Products may have Invalid CPU Usage Values.
- SMF type 89 records are generated for CA products to allow the determination of which products are running and when they are running.
- The values recorded in the SMF type 89 CPU usage fields are not necessarily accurate, and may understate or overstate actual CPU utilization.
- The only valid use of SMF type 89 records generated by CA products is to determine which products were active on particular LPARS at specific times.
