    The reason I am asking is I am working with a client to implement r20 Sysview for DB2. Their Vtam sysprog was pointed to the sample members in the SOURCE product dataset, one of which is the RAFUIAPP member. The syntax in that member does not match the syntax listed in the documentation. Specifically, the sample syntax in RAFUIAPP contains the  DLOGMODE and MODETAB operands, which are missing from the syntax example in the r20 documentation. I also noticed that the IDB2LTBL member is still in the SOURCE dataset. 

    So is the mistake in the RAFUIAPP member, or the product documentation? Either way, the doc and the samples should be in sync.

    Thank you for bringing to our attention the mismatch between the .SOURCE examples and the documentation.  You will want to use the examples found in the .SOURCE library which do specify the DLOGMODE and MODETAB parameters.

    Thank you Mike and James,

     

    The VTAM (RAF) article was updated.

     

    Please reach out to me at any time for any Sysview for DB2 doc enhancements.
