There are several products which look at this, and a couple of
courses, and High Masters of the art like Joel Goldstein (Stand up
and bow, Joel). And there's a module in your installation library
called SDSNSAMP, which has layouts and 8-character abbreviations
for all of the fields in all of the IFCIDs (Instrumentation
Facility Class Identifiers).
But, fundamentally, this is a space where things are hard to find
and take serious work and practice to understand, which is why the
products and courses and expert(s) are out there. BMC (MAINVIEW),
CA(name?), ASG (TMON), and IBM (name?) have offerings in this
To activate a class, you need to use the START TRACE statement, and

Subject: [DB2-L] - IFCID Reporting
We've had DB2 for z/OS for a few years now and I've seen several
articles about IFCIDs. It sounds like IFCIDs provide a lot of
useful information. Most of the articles I have found though, talk
about the information that an IFCID provides but often don't
explain how to report on the information.
As an example, I'd like to look at the information provided by
IFCID's 366 and 376. Which tool(s) are good for viewing the
information provided by an IFCID?
