DUMPTAPES

This control statement controls the pool of magnetic tape volume serials available to CA SMF Director for SMF dump processing. A pool of volume serials must be defined to this product if any system configuration was defined with the NOSCRATCH operand of the DUMPOPTIONS or OPTIONS control statement. During dump processing for systems with a configuration definition having NOSCRATCH, this product selects which tape volume serial in the free pool should be used for creating its SMF history files. If no volumes are in the free pool, new tape volume serials must be added.
