Spectrum SMF Writer - Low-Cost 4GL Report Writer for SMF Files.

Sample CICS Performance Report from SMF 110 Subtype 1 Records

It's easy to report on SMF data!
 

SMF Spectrum Writer
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 110 subtype 1 (CICS Monitoring) records, with data class 3 (performance). (See SMF 110 Subtype 1 record layout.) (Note: if your 110 records are "compressed," you should decompress them before passing them to Spectrum SMF Writer.)

We normalize those 110 records in order to process each performance segment present on each record. We print some identifying information from each segment. (Most users would also add a column for one or more of the performance measures present on the record.)

We sorted the records by transaction, printing two blank lines at the breaks.

All of this with just a few lines of code!
