SMF Type 47 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 47 SMF records

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

Purpose: Record type 47 is written when a system network architecture (SNA) remote user logs on or when a binary synchronous communication (BSC) remote line is started or a BSC remote user signs on.

For SNA, the record contains a record indicator, a work station name, a logical unit (LU) name, and a password. The record length for an SNA LOGON is 52 bytes. For BSC, the record contains a record indicator, a remote name, a line name, a password, and, for a remote SIGNON, a message text. The record length is 52 bytes for a started line or 102 bytes for a SIGNON.

It's easy to report on SMF 47 data!
