SMF Type 10 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 10 SMF records
(Allocation Recovery).

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

Purpose: Record type 10 is written after a successful device allocation recovery.

This record identifies the device that is made available by device class, unit type, channel address, and unit address. It identifies the job requiring the allocation job log identification and user identification.

Note: This record is produced only when the response to message IEF238D is a device number. This record is not produced for any other responses.

It's easy to report on SMF 10 data!

Time since midnight, in hundredths of a second, that the record was built into the SMF buffer.

System identification (from the SID parameter).
Job name The job name, time, and date that the reader recognized the JOB card (for this job) constitute the job log identification, or transaction name (for APPC output). Note: This field contains blanks if allocation recovery is for a system task.
Time since midnight, in hundredths of a second, that the reader recognized the JOB card (for this job). This field equals zero if allocation recovery is for a system task.
Date when the reader recognized the JOB card (for this job), in the form 0cyydddF. See Table 13-1 on page 13-2 for a detailed description. This field equals zero if allocation recovery is for a system task.

Length of rest of record including this field.
Data Definition Section
For each device made available there is an entry with the following format:
(Offset from beginning of record: 44)
Device identification. Note: Virtual I/O devices are identified by the following: Device Class 0 Unit Type 0 Device Number X'7FFF'It is important to understand the following: Allocation messages for VIO data sets will show VIO ALLOCATED TO ddname. SMF records will show VIO unit addresses as X'7FFF'. The actual in-storage UCB built for VIO will show address X'3FFF'.For example, the messages: v IEF237I X'3FFF' ALLOCATED TO ddname v IEF237I X'7FFF' ALLOCATED TO ddnameindicate that ddname is not allocated to a Virtual I/O device, but is instead allocated to a real device whose unit address is X'3FFF' or X'7FFF' respectively.
Device class and unit type.
Device number.

The table above is based on the description provided by IBM in its "MVS Systems Management Facilities (SMF)" manual.
