SMF Type 65 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 65 SMF records
(Integrated Catalog Facility Delete Activity).

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

Purpose: Record type 65 is written during any processing that results in a DELETE request to Catalog management services, such as:

  • IDCAMS DELETE
  • IEHPROGM UNCATLG

One type 65 record is written for each record updated or deleted from a catalog. Record type 65 identifies the entry being deleted and the catalog in which the catalog record is updated or deleted, and gives the updated or deleted catalog record. It indicates whether a VSAM cluster or non-VSAM data set was scratched (function indicator = ‘S’), or only catalog information was deleted (function indicator = ‘U’). It identifies the job by job log identification and user identification.

The job name, time, and date that the reader recognized the JOB card (for this job) constitutes the job log identification. If a system task caused the record to be written, the job name and user identification fields contain blanks and the time and date fields contain zeros.

It's easy to report on SMF 65 data!
