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 80 (RACF Processing) records. (See SMF 80 record layout.)

We print a report showing each RACF processing event, with a description of what the event was, and the outcome. Note that the actual SMF record just contains codes for the event and its status. 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 "relocation" fields at the end of the SMF 80 record. This lets us easily print such hard-to-access details as resource name (DSNAME), authority requested and authority allowed.

These events are grouped by unique JOB and printed in JOB/timestamp order.

All of this with just a few lines of code!
