BEGIN

This control statement signals the start of a series of statements defining a configuration. BEGIN appears in:
smfd
This control statement signals the start of a series of statements defining a configuration. BEGIN appears in:
  • The input stream after a COMPILE control statement
  • A data set referenced by a SOURCE operand in a COMPILE statement.
Each BEGIN must have a corresponding END to conclude the definition of that particular configuration. Each configuration definition remains in the SCDS file. It can later be replaced but not deleted.
Statement Format:
BEGIN
►►─ BEGIN ─ CONFIG(n) ─ SID(sid) ─ NAME(name) ─ . ────────────────────────────►◄
Operands and Descriptions:
CONFIG(n)
Identifies the configuration that is defined in the statements that follow. This is a reference number and is not used by the SMFD program.
(n) is a positive integer no greater than 255. It is unique to this configuration definition.
SID(sid)
Identifies the SMF ID for this configuration. The SID is the 4-character identifier that appears in the SMF data. If this SID already exists in the SCDS, the configuration definition is completely replaced.
NAME(name)
Specifies a comment of up to 20 characters long within quotes, which is printed on the heading portion of CA SMF Director reports for this configuration definition.
