SMF Type 96 Record

This table shows the record layout for type 96 SMF records
(Cross Memory Service Provider Charge Back).

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

Purpose: Record type 96 is written whenever certain operator commands are issued. The record is created to provide user account information so that it may be sorted with other SMF records associated with the user. For accounting purposes, this record contains the amount of CPU time used by a user.

Note: If available, this time also includes VECTOR time.

The type 96 record can be used with the subtype selectivity function. The subtypes are:

  • 1. Detail records
  • 2. Summary records

The Detail records are produced during consultations with the Integrated Reasoning Shell’s subsystem. One of these records is produced each time the subsystem replies or queries the requestor (user).

A Summary record is produced when the requestor issues an “INIT END” command. This record contains counts of the communications that occurred between the subsystem and the requestor, and the totals for CPU and Vector times.

Note: Since Vector times are not available for all systems, the Vector time fields contain zero on those systems not able to provide Vector accounting at the task level.

Level: z/OS 1.11

It's easy to report on SMF 96 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.
