Sample Report from SMF 120
WebSphere Application Java CPU Times
It's easy to report on SMF data!
We have a low-cost 4GL report writer especially for SMF files. It's called Spectrum SMF Writer.
Spectrum SMF Writer handles the difficult SMF record parsing for you automatically. You just specify which fields you want to see.
Spectrum SMF Writer also converts the arcane date and time fields and reformats them into an attractive report.
Plus Spectrum SMF Writer even exports SMF data as comma delimited files to use on your PC.
The sample SMF report below was created with Spectrum SMF Writer,
the low-cost 4GL SMF report writer. It reads as input the SMF file and selects just the type 120 WebSphere Application records for Jave 2 Enterprise Edition containers. (See SMF 120-5 record layout.) It then prints a report line for each Java bean method accounting section found. The report shows CPU time information about those Java bean methods. Note that a single SMF 120 record can contain information about multiple beans and multiple methods per bean.
All of this with just a few of code! Why not install a Spectrum SMF Writer trial right now and start making your own SMF reports!
