    The CA MICS RMF component provides several batch-oriented reporting choices, also some MICS/MICF inquiry reporting capability as well, which can be used as substitute for IBM RMF post-processor (PGM=ERBRMFPP).

     

    As you will find, the MICS-based RMF post-processor reports are generated much quicker, mostly since the RMF/SMF data has already been decoded, sorted and resides in the MICS/SAS database.  Furthermore, the MICS-provided solution allows for summary-level reporting, in some instances.  And the MICS-based solution provides for data-filtering not possible with the IBM RMF PP reporting utility, using the %LET SELECT = %QUOTE(* your filter code goes here; );  -- as documented.

     

    Here's a simple example to generate the MICS-substitute RMF CPU report for prior date:

     

    //STEP1   EXEC MICSSHRA   <-- select your MICS RMF unit PROC

    //SYSIN   DD DISP=SHR,DSN=sharedprefix.MICS.INCLLIB(RMFRPTS)

    //CONTROL DD *

    %LET REPORTS = CPU;

    %LET TSPAN = DETAIL;

    %LET CYCLES = 01;

    %RMFPP;

    /*

    //

     

    Refer to the MICS RMF component Guide, Chapter 3, for more information about this useful alternative, or view the MICF SHARED inquiry selection for RMF component prefix.
