Control statements for transaction filtering

Use filtering to instruct C\Prof to collect only those transactions that match certain criteria. Filtering reduces the DASD and CPU overhead of the C\Prof collector because the amount of data written to archive data sets is reduced. To add filtering to your collector, add filter control statements to your collector's configuration file.

The filtering options are used to select transactions for collection. Filtering is optional but recommended to ensure the most efficient use of resources.

The following types of filters are available:

  1. Filters that specify transaction identity using the TRAN, EXCLUDETRAN and PROGRAM statements.

  2. Filters that specify transaction performance using statements RESPONSE and ABEND statements.

When selecting transactions, the C\Prof collector filters first by transaction identity, then by transaction performance.

The statements to the left may be used to filter transactions.
