SMF Type 20 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 20 SMF records
(Job Initiation).

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

Purpose: Record type 20 is written at job initiation (including TSO/E logon). This record contains the job log identification programmer’s name, number of accounting fields on the JOB statement, accounting fields, and RACF-related information. The job name, time, and date the reader recognized the JOB card (for this job) constitute the job log identification. It is used by the RACF Report Writer in combination with record types 30, 80, 81, and 83 to produce RACF reports.

The length of record type 20 includes the length of the JOB statement accounting fields and the relocatable RACF section.

Note: IBM recommends that you use record type 30 rather than record types 4, 5, 20, 34, 35, and 40.

It's easy to report on SMF 20 data!
