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 102 (DB2 Audit) records with an IFCID of 366 (incompatible changes in V10). (See SMF 102 record layout.)

We print a report showing each event of an incompatible change. The report shows a description of what the incompatible change consisted of, and the transaction, program name and statement number containing the error. It also shows the plan name, package collection name and operator ID.

Note that the actual SMF record just contains codes for the incompatible change. Our Spectrum SMF Writer definitions include code to expand those numeric values into descriptive texts.

Spectrum SMF Writer also uses a special exit to parse the variably formatted SMF 102 records. This lets us easily print the hard-to-access details in the IFCID 366 section.

These incompatible change events are sorted into program name order.

All of this with just a few lines of code!
