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 94 subtype 1 tape library system records. (See SMF 94 record layout.) It selects the record for the hourly statistics for 11AM and prints various statistics for that hour.

All of this with just a few simple 4GL statements!
Why not install a Spectrum SMF Writer trial right now and start making your own SMF reports!
