SMF data for use of SORTL and z15 Z Sort accelerator
Recently we have had some issues and queries around use of SORTL by Db2Sort and currently the only way to track whether SORTL is being used by Db2Sort is to scan every job and look for the message "CNK558I SORTL INSTRUCTION USED". To report on usage across thousands of jobs this is not a practical solution. So we need SMF records cut by Db2SORT when SORTL is utilised.
