Notes

 

Syntax

Use columns 1 through 71.  Columns 72 through 80 are ignored.

Avoid embedded blanks.

Separate consecutive parameters by comma.

Enter each parameter in the format: keyword=value.

Do not divide a parameter between consecutive records.  Place each parameter completely on one record.

Indicate continuation by placing a comma after the last entry on a record, followed by a blank before column 72.

Parameters

Parameter Meaning and Use

Value

Range

Default Value
JWT=nn This is a required parameter that initially specifies the nubmer of minutes a job is allowed to wait continuously.  When the specified time limit has expired, the time limit exit routine (IEFUTL) is entered, if exits are to be taken.  The limit value can be changed by IEFUTL. 1-999 10
SID=xxxx This required parameter specifies the system and model on which SMF is active, provided the installation modifies the default value.

four

alphameric

and/or

special

characters

H155

MAN=NONE

MAN=USER

MAN=ALL

This optional parameter specifies the type of records to be written to the SMF data set(s).

Note: If MAN=ALL or USER, the BUF parameter is also required, and must not be zero or defaulted.

NONE - specifies that no records are to be written to the SMF data set(s), regardless of values specified for OPT, DSV, and REC parameters.
USER - specifies that only user records (types 128 through 255) are to be written to the SMF data set(s).
ALL - specifies that both SMF-produced and user-produced records are to be written to the SMF data set(s).  All SMF records are created unless suppressed by the OPT, DSV, or REC parameters.

not

applicable

ALL
OPT= This optional parameter specifies whether system and job information, as opposed to system, job, and job step information is to be recorded.
1 - Specifies that only system and job-related information is to be collected by SMF.  The step-initiation exit, IEFUSI, and the job step termination exit IEFACTRT are not taken.
2 - Specifies that system, job, and job step information is to be collectged by SMF.
1-2 2
DSV= This optional parameter specifies whether data set information and/or direct access volume information is to be collected by SMF.
0 - specifies that neither data set information nor direct access volume information is to be collected.
1 - specifies that direct access volume information is to be collected and data set information is to be suppressed.
2 - specifies that data set information is to be collected and direct access volume information is to be suppressed.
3 - specifies that both data set information and direct access volume information are to be collected.

Note: If either DSV=2 or 3 is specified and OPT=1 is also specified, SMF converts OPT=1 into OPT=2 and issues a warning message.

0-3 0
REC= This optional parameter specifies whether record type 17 will be written for temporary data sets.  The parameter is not effective unless DSV is also specified as 2 or 3.
0 - specifies that record type 17 is to be written for non-temporary data sets only, and information is to be suppressed for temporary data sets.
2 - specifies that record type 17 is to be written for both temporary and non-temporary data sets.
0 or 2 0
BUF= This parameter specifies the size of the SMF buffer.  It must be specified if the MAN parameter equals ALL or USER.

Notes

  1. Specify a value that is a multiple of 8 bytes (double word).  Otherwise, SMF rounds the value to the next lower multiple of 8 bytes.
  2. Before you reduce the buffer size specified in the previous IPL, you must dump the SMF data set(s).  Otherwise, the data set(s) cannot be dumped.

None
OPI= This optional parameter specifies whether the SMFPRMxx parameters are to be presented on the console during IPL for the operator's inspection and/or modification.

YES or

NO

NO
EXT= This optional parameter specifies whether SMF exits are to be taken.  The parameter is independent of the value specified for MAN.
