EasySMF is designed to allow you to get started with a minimum of effort.


Install EasySMF and load SMF data


1.Download EasySMF and run the setup file to install the software.


2.Start EasySMF, and select a location for the SMF data repository, where the SMF data will be stored.




The repository is simply a Windows folder, where EasySMF creates a catalog to track the contents, and sub-folders for each dataset loaded into the repository. The repository should be created in a new, empty folder.


3.Click Load via FTP to download SMF data from z/OS, or Load from File to load previously downloaded data. Data loaded via FTP can be raw SMF data, or SMF data compressed using Gzip. When loading from a file on the PC data can be blocked or unblocked SMF records, or TSO TRANSMIT format - uncompressed, or compressed using Zip or Gzip.






EasySMF will download the the selected files using the built in FTP client.
