SMF Type 62 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 62 SMF records
(VSAM Component or Cluster Opened).

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

Purpose: Record type 62 is written at the successful or unsuccessful opening of a VSAM component or cluster. Note: This record is not generated when a system task issues the OPEN macro.

It's easy to report on SMF 62 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.
