Issue/Introduction

Description:

Did you know that you could suppress specific SMF records and subtypes from being written to SYS1.MANxx data sets?

Solution:

In parmlib member SMFDATA of the SCSYPARM dataset, you can suppress SMF records from being written to the SYS1.MANxx data sets. You can even be sub-type specific as the parameter is specified with a type, subtype and an action.

The parameter is SUPPRESS-SMF-RECORD-TYPE.

Here is the syntax of the parameter:

Syntax: type:subtype:action

    type       - 000 to 255 or *   
    subtype   - 000 to 255 or *   
    action     - INCLUDE|EXCLUDE   
 
       INCLUDE - Suppress         
       EXCLUDE - Do not suppress 

Here is an example of suppressing SMF 255 subtype 001 from the SYS1.MANxx data sets.
