|I have unloaded the CMF records using DFH$MOLS utility. But in some of the articles on internet says that I also need to create the dictionary using DFHMNDUP and DFH$MOLS will refer the dictionary to unload the CMF records. I am wondering how I was able to unload the CMF records without creating the dictionary. I request if anyone can explain this.
If you have read the documentation of the DFH$MOLS thoroughly, you would have answered your own question. Any here is the snippet that would answer your query
|DFH$MOLS Documentation wrote:
The DFH$MOLS program requires a performance dictionary record to process monitoring performance data. When it locates a dictionary record, it builds an in store dictionary and processes the subsequent (if any) performance data using this dictionary. Whenever it reads a new dictionary record, the current dictionary is released and a new in store dictionary is built. The dictionary record must come before any related performance data; otherwise, the DFH$MOLS program abends. Monitoring exception records do not require a dictionary, so they can precede the first dictionary record and still be successfully processed. For more information about performance dictionary records, see Generating a performance dictionary record using DFHMNDUP.
