SOURCE

This control statement lets you redefine the normal source of the data that CA SMF Director uses in its processing. It has three forms:
smfd
This control statement lets you redefine the normal source of the data that CA SMF Director uses in its processing. It has three forms:
  • SOURCE DUMP lets you read in a data set containing SMF data from a single SID as though it were a MAN file or a logstream and feed the data into CA SMF Director.
  • SOURCE HISTORY lets you run an extract directly from a specified CA SMF Director history file instead of retrieving it through the SCDS. This form causes the DYNAM option to be disabled.
  • SOURCE ALTERNATE tells CA SMF Director to use the alternate index for all subsequent EXTRACT and PRINT requests in the same execution.
You may specify SOURCE only once per run. The control statements can appear anywhere in the statement input stream.

Operands and Descriptions:
DUMP(ddname)
Specifies a file "(ddname)" to be used as input to the dump process. The normal system SMF data sets are not read, and only data from this file is processed. The file "(ddname)" cannot begin with "HIST."
HISTORY(ddname)
Specifies input file "(ddname)" for EXTRACT and PRINT requests, bypassing automatic retrieval of data from the history data sets.
"(ddname)" must be a 1-character to 8-character name that corresponds to a DD statement in the execution JCL for this run.
ALTERNATE
Specifies that the alternate index is to be accessed for files that are needed to satisfy any EXTRACT or PRINT requests.
LSNAME(logstream name)
Specifies which logstreams are processed during a dump from an archive. If SID is specified, the logstreams must be within the SID.
SID(SID)
Specifies the SMF ID of records that are processed during a dump from a source file. This operand is primarily intended to be used when you are source dumping archival data from SMF logstreams because an SMF logstream can contain records from more than one system when the logstreams are backed by a list structure in a coupling facility.
The default SID is the SMF ID of the first record in the source SMF file. This operand is valid only when the DUMP and LSNAME operands are present.
