RMFPACK can be used to prepare SMF data on your mainframe for processing by IntelliMagic Vision. You need to use the process described in the IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS Data Collection Instructions.docx to collect SMF data for an IntelliMagic study. After sorting the data, you can run RMFPACK to compress the RMF records, such that the resulting data set is much smaller (typically 15% of the original size). The output dataset is a standard binary file that can be downloaded to a PC as needed.

RMFPACK contains sample JCL to sort SMF records along with IntelliMagic FTP(S) certificates if you require secure transmission, and will create compressed output data sets of records in specific groups from all your systems. The package also contains JCL to run our proprietary compression product RMFPACK.

Note for CMF users: RMFPACK can be used with CMF data as well.
