SMF Type 36 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 36 SMF records
(Integrated Catalog Facility Catalog).

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

Purpose: Record type 36 is partially built when an integrated catalog facility catalog is exported; it is then compiled and written. The record contains information to identify the catalog being exported, the time of export, and information necessary to allocate the portable data set for subsequent import. It identifies the job-by-job log identification and user identification.

The SMF record is only written upon successful completion of the EXPORT command. The record contains the standard header and is formatted for the product and data sections.

It's easy to report on SMF 36 data!
