Sample PrintWay Report from SMF 6 Records

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 6 (IP PrintWay) records. (See SMF 6 IP PrintWay record layout.)

We print a report showing information from each PrintWay log record. The report shows date and time, task information, host name, user ID and the output DD involved.

These events are sorted into host name order, and then by date and time.

This report was sent to us by a user. (Of course we anonymized their actual data.) He included the following comment:

"This is perfect. We had a “Chinese-fire-drill’ last week over a PrintWay remote printer. Long story short, your couple lines of Spectrum code will replace a lot of SAS code reading PrintWay records."

All of this with just a few lines of code!
