SMF Type 66 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 66 SMF records
(Integrated Catalog Facility Alter Activity).

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

Purpose: Record type 66 is written during any processing that results in an ALTER request to Catalog Management Services, such as:
IDCAMS ALTER

One type 66 record is written for each record written or deleted from a catalog. Record type 66 identifies the entry being altered and the catalog in which the catalog record is written or deleted, and gives the new, updated, or deleted catalog record. It indicates if the entry was renamed (function indicator = ‘R’) and, if so, gives the old and new names of the entry. 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 66 data!
