|Subject: ||Capture Performance Stats in Jobstream?|
We would like to capture some basic performance stats in a very
"controlled" SAS jobstream under MVS. That is, the code is generated
from some "set up" screens, so we can insert code or macros anywhere in
program or in the JCL. We are basically only interested in the CPU and
I/O usage, and perhaps some measure of memory usage.
The CPU and I/O stats are to be paired with Data warehouse indicators (on
table and column usage) and used to analyze ways to improve the
data warehouse structure. We would prefer to do this pairing at run time
that all of the information can be logged to a distinct tracking data set.
I am aware of the stimer, memrpt, stats, and fullstats parameters to send
to the log, and the SMF parm to send records to SMF. But, again, we
would much rather capture the data at run time (with a call to something
or a macro
invocation) and log it to a distinct data set with the other data
warehouse info that is being captured.) We would like to stay away from
pulling usage (performance) info from SMF and merging with the other job
related data that is being logged to a special data set.
Ideas? Secrets? Existing exits?
