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.

The sample SMF reports below were created with Spectrum SMF Writer, the low-cost 4GL SMF report writer.

In these reports, we read the SMF file and select just the type 113 "Hardware Capacity, Reporting and Statistics" records. (See SMF 113 record layout.)

The first report shows the contents of all Counter Set segments. It also shows the actual counter value for the first counter of the first counter set.

The second report shows the contents of all of the actual counters themselves. You can use the two reports together, along with a key to the "counter maps" for your level of z/OS, to assign meanings to the counter values.

All of this with just a few lines of code!
