Generating Reports of SMF Statistics

Generating Reports of SMF Statistics

You can use the PowerExchange DTLSMFRP program to generate reports of PowerExchange activity based on statistics records that the PowerExchange Listener writes to SMF. The program reads the statistics records from SMF archived data sets only.
To generate reports from SMF statistics records, you must first define a STATS statement in the PowerExchange DBMOVER configuration file. The STATS statement specifies the SMF record type of the records that contain PowerExchange statistics.
The DTLSMFRP program generates the following types of reports, ordered by SMF record:
  • Time and CPU statistics
    . Reports the following information, ordered by SMF record:
    • SMF record type
    • Process ID of the PowerCenter client connection
    • Job name and user ID associated with the client
    • Start time of the PowerExchange Listener or client
    • End time of the client connection to the Listener
    • CPU time used during the reporting interval and as of the end of the session
  • PowerCenter session information
    . Reports the map name and PowerCenter session ID.
  • Access method statistics
    . Reports the access method, the file name or table name that the access request used, the number of rows that were read and that were written, and the number of bytes that were read and that were written.
  • Db2 statistics
    . If you have a Db2 for z/OS source, reports the following information ordered by SMF record:
    • Db2 SSID
    • Plan name
    • Connection type (CONNTYPE)
    • Authorization ID (AUTHID)
    • Correlation ID
    • SQL statements processed
    • Number of rows processed
    • SQL return code (SQLCODE)
    • Reason code (RSNCODE)
    • Number of updates, deletes, and inserts processed
    • CPU usage
The DTLSMFRP program can also create dumps of SMF information that Informatica Global Customer Support can use for diagnosing problems, or that third-party reporting tools can use to determine the SMF record layouts that the PowerExchange Listener produces.
If you want the report to contain information from a single PowerExchange Listener, assign a unique SMF record type to the STATS parameter in each PowerExchange Listener DBMOVER configuration file. Otherwise, the report will contain information from every PowerExchange Listener that has the same SMF record type.
