SMF Type 20 Record
This table shows the record layout for type 20 SMF records
It's easy to report on SMF 20 data!
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.
Record length. This field and the next field (total of four bytes) form the RDW (record descriptor word). See “Standard SMF Record Header” on page 13-1 for a detailed description.
Segment descriptor (see record length field).
System indicator: Bit Meaning When Set 0-2 Reserved 3-6 Version indicators* 7 Reserved.*See “Standard SMF Record Header” on page 13-1 for a detailed description.
Record type 20 (X'14').
Time since midnight, in hundredths of a second, when the record was moved into the SMF buffer.
Date when the record was moved into the SMF buffer, in the form 0cyydddF. See “Standard SMF Record Header” on page 13-1 for a detailed description.
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).
Time since midnight, in hundredths of a second, that the reader recognized the JOB card (for this job).

User-defined identification field (taken from common exit parameter area, not from USER=parameter on job statement).
Offset to relocatable area. See z/OS Security Server RACF Macros and Interfaces for more information about relocatable areas for RACF-owned records.
Number of accounting fields.
Accounting fields. Each entry for an accounting field contains the length of the field (one byte, binary) followed by the field (EBCDIC). A zero indicates an omitted field.
Size of relocate section (including this field).
RACF Group ID. If RACF is not active, this field is set to zero.
RACF User ID. If RACF is not active, this field is set to zero.
