SMF Type 110 Record - Subtype 0

This table shows the record layout for type 110 SMF records
(CICS Journal Record).

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

Purpose: CICS/ESA writes record type 110 to record transaction data collected at event monitoring points.

CICS writes several types of SMF 110 record. Each type, or subtype as it is known, can be identified using the record subtype field in the SMF header. The subtype values are as follows:

  • X'0000' - CICS journaling
  • X'0001' - CICS monitoring
  • X'0002' - CICS statistics
  • X'0003' - Shared temporary storage queue server
  • X'0004' - Coupling facility data table server statistics
  • X'0005' - Named counter sequence number server statistics.

CICS Journal Records

The CICS log manager provides facilities for the creation, control, and retrieval of journals during real-time CICS execution. Journals are intended to record, in chronological order, any information that you may later need to reconstruct data or events. For example, you could create journals to act as audit trails; to record database updates, additions, and deletions for backup purposes; or to track transaction activity in the system. These journal records can be logged to the SMF file as record type 110, subtype 0.

The three components of a CICS monitoring record are an SMF header, an SMF product section, and a CICS data section.

It's easy to report on SMF 110 data! (Jump to sample reports)

SMF Spectrum Writer
We have a low-cost 4GL report writer especially for SMF files. It's called Spectrum SMF Writer.

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.

Plus, Spectrum SMF Writer can export SMF data as comma delimited files to use on your PC.

Sample CICS Performance Report from SMF 110 Subtype 1 Records


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 110 subtype 1 (CICS Monitoring) records, with data class 3 (performance). (See SMF 110 Subtype 1 record layout.)

We normalize those 110 records in order to process each performance segment present on each record. We print some identifying information from each segment. (Most users would also add a column for one or more of the performance measures present on the record.)

We sorted the records by transaction, printing two blank lines at the breaks.

All of this with just a few lines of code!
