SMF Type 43 Record - JES2

This table shows the record layout for type 43 SMF records
(JES2 Start).

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

Purpose: Record type 43 is written when the operator issues an S JES2 command (to start JES2) or a $E SYS command (to reclaim the job processing that was being done on the named system in a multi-access spool configuration). This record contains a warm start indicator, JES2 start options, and the identification of the system whose job processing is to be reclaimed.

It's easy to report on SMF 43 data!
