SMF Type 16 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 16 SMF records
(DFSORT Statistics).

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

Purpose: SMF 16 records provide several types of information from DFSORT:

Application Identification Information The name of the job and step that executed.

Date and Time Information The date and time that the application began and terminated.

Termination Information Detailed information describing how DFSORT terminated and why.

Access Method Count Information A total count of the number of GETs, PUTs, READs, WRITEs, and EXCPs issued for the SORTIN, SORTOUT and work data sets.

Timing Information Task Control Block (TCB) and Service Request Block (SRB) time.

Data Set Information Detailed information about SORTIN, SORTINnn, SORTOUT, and OUTFIL data sets used for the application.

When you so request, DFSORT passes one type of record to SMF for each executing application. This record is the SMF type-16 record. By coding the installation or run-time SMF parameter properly, you can control whether DFSORT passes a short (subtype 1), a full (subtype 2), or a short (subtype 3) record to SMF.

If you code SMF=SHORT:

  • A short (subtype 1) record is passed to SMF for a successful application.
  • A short (subtype 3) record is passed to SMF for an unsuccessful application.

If you code SMF=FULL:

  • A short (subtype 1) record is passed to SMF for a successful fixed-length record Peerage/Vale sort application.
  • A full (subtype 2) record is passed to SMF for a successful Blockset application.
  • A full (subtype 2) record is passed to SMF for a successful variable-length record Peerage/Vale sort application.
  • A short (subtype 3) record is passed to SMF for an unsuccessful application.

Note: SMF=FULL can degrade performance for variable-length record applications.
Note: For a successful or unsuccessful conventional merge or tape work data set sort application, a short (subtype 1) record is always produced.

SMF Record Structure
The short (subtype 1 or subtype 3) and full (subtype 2) records always contain the following:

  • Header section
  • Product section
  • Data section
For a variable-length record application, the full (subtype 2) record also includes the following:
  • Record-length distribution section
For a Blockset application, the full (subtype 2) record might also include one or more of the following:
  • Input Data Set Sections; one section for each of up to 16 SORTIN (including concatenated data sets) or SORTINnn data sets
  • SORTOUT Data Set Section
  • OUTFIL Data Set Sections; one section for each of up to 16 OUTFIL data sets.

Note: Depending on the severity of an unsuccessful run, information might not be provided in some fields of the SMF record.

Notes (in table below):
a This value is always provided.
b This value is only provided for a Blockset application.
f This value is only provided when a Blockset sort, copy, or merge application is successful and SMF=FULL is specified.
n This value is not provided when DFSORT terminates abnormally (that is, with record subtype X'03').
s This value is not provided in the SMF record passed to the termination exit.
t If DFSORT terminates abnormally, the value provided might not be identical to the value provided when termination is successful.
v This value is only provided when a variable-length record application is successful and SMF=FULL is specified.
1. ICECPUT is set to zero if the TIMEUSED service used to obtain CPU time fails.
2. ICEIBLK and ICEIBLKF are set to zero if the input data set is not present. ICEOBLK and ICEOBLKF are set to zero if the output data set is not present.
3. If ICEFLBYT bits 1-2 are binary zeros (indicating fixed length record), the short form of the SMF record is produced, even if the user has specified the full SMF record. In addition, ICERSUB is initialized to X’0001’ to indicate that a short record will be written.
4. If all bits of ICEFLBY2 are zero, then the function to be performed could not be determined.
5. Since ICERCDS, ICEBYTES, ICECPUT, and ICEWBLK are not each on full word boundaries within the DSECT for the data section, alignment errors occur when assembling programs referencing these fields as full word fields. See “Mapping the SMF Record” on page 141 for additional information.
6. The number of calls to the access method used for a particular data set will be the total count of EXCPs, or READ/WRITEs (BSAM), or GET/PUTs (VSAM).
7. If all the bits of ICEIAMB or ICEOAMB are zero and DFSORT terminated abnormally, then the type of access method used for SORTIN and SORTOUT could not be determined.
8. This field is zero if termination is normal.
9. Depending on the application, this number may not be representative of the number of SMF record sections that DFSORT actually provides in its SMF record.
10. Refer to message ICE134I for a description of the meaning of the number of records/bytes sorted. The Blockset technique provides a 64-bit value; the Peerage and Vale techniques provide a 31-bit value. You should reference the 64-bit fields containing these values. For Blockset, the smaller fields contain only the least significant 32 bits.
11. Refer to message ICE054I for a description of the meaning of the number of input/output records.
12. Refer to message ICE055I for a description of the meaning of the number of inserted/deleted records.
13. The following fields are provided for the Conventional technique SMF record: v All of the fields in the header section except ICETRN, ICEUSER and ICEGROUP. v All of the fields in the Product section. v ICESTPNM and the technique and program invoked flags of ICEFLBYT in the Data section.
14. This information is provided for the first SORTIN or SORTINnn data set only. This field will contain binary zeroes if no SORTIN or SORTINnn data set is present.
15. This information is provided for the first SORTOUT volume serial only. This field will contain binary zeroes if no SORTOUT data set is present.
16. The Blockset technique provides a 64-bit value; the Peerage and Vale techniques provide a value in the lower 31 bits only.
17. The Blockset technique provides a 31–bit value; the Peerage and Vale techniques provide a 15–bit value only. For Blockset, the smaller fields contain only the least significant 16 bits.
