SMF Type 57 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 57 SMF records
(JES3 Networking Transmission).

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

Purpose: Record type 57 is written whenever JES3 completes a network transmission and the connection to the next node is BSC. When the connection is SNA, JES3 does not write the record; BDT writes record type 59 instead. Record type 57 contains original and current job identifiers, accounting information, transmission path, and destination.

It's easy to report on SMF 57 data!

SMF Spectrum Writer
We have a low-cost 4GL report writer especially for SMF files. It's called Spectrum SMF Writer.

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.

Plus, Spectrum SMF Writer can export SMF data as comma delimited files to use on your PC.
