SMF Type 2 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 2 SMF records
(Dump Header).

List of other SMF record layouts available.
List of sample SMF reports.

Purpose: The SMF dump program writes record type 2 to the dump data set. This record consists of the standard SMF record header only. It indicates the beginning of a dump of the SMF data set from a direct access device (usually to a tape).

It's easy to report on SMF 2 data!
