For more information about the VTOC scan collection data sets and filter members, see the Reference for MainView SRM Reporting. For information about the audit log files, see Using MainView SRM products.
You can use one of the following VSCAN primary command formats on the WBVTOC view to initiate a VTOC scan:
The variable xx is the suffix of the SMVSCFxx member that contains the filter keywords that are to be used in the scan.
The variable keywords overrides one or more filter keywords that are contained in the default SMVSCFxx member.
For more information about VSCAN filter commands, examples, and initiating VTOC scans, see the Reference for MainView SRM Reporting.
The following table summarizes each VSCAN collections option and its corresponding SETSRM keywords, action line commands, and EZCmd menus.
For complete keyword descriptions for the SETSRM command, see SETSRM command

Collection Data Sets
Advances to the WBVTOC view.
This view displays cataloged VTOC scan collection data sets and the inflight and aborted scans from the current MainView SRM execution. MainView SRM obtains the cataloged data sets using the VSCAN_OINDX setting in the active SMMSYS PARMLIB member.
The collection data sets are displayed according to the filter member suffix.
DSN—Data set level statistics
G—Retrieve control record
P—Group and pool statistics
V—Volume level statistics
VSCAN Activity Log
Advances to the LOGREC view.
This view displays records from the MainView SRM audit log files. When initiated from this link, filters are specified so that only VTOC scan activity records are displayed. A record is written to the audit log files when a VSCAN request is received and when a VSCAN request ends. The audit record contains the filter member that was used, the collection data set, and other information. For information about the audit log files, see Using MainView SRM products.
VSCAN Filter Members
Advances to the ADMEM view.
Use this view to display and update MainView SRM PARMLIB members. Action line commands enable you to make changes to PARMLIB members. Press F1 in the CMD column to display online Help that describes each action line command.
/—Display contents of storage
Data Set Filtering
Advances to the WBVTOCD view by way of the VTOC Scan Data Set Filter dialog.
Use the VTOC Scan Data Set Filter dialog to specify the filtering criteria that is used to produce the reports that are available for selection.
In the VTOC Scan Data Set Filter dialog, you can specify any or all of the parameters. Use the OP fields to set comparison operators for the values that you enter. Most non-numeric or single entry fields allow masking and stacking (multiple entries) of values separated by a comma. Some fields have two sets of OP and value entry fields. These fields allow for exclusions and ranges.
MainView SRM uses all of your entries in the dialog to create the data set filter. Assume that you entered all of the example entries. The resulting filter would list only SYS1 data sets (excluding SYS1.MAN data sets) on BAB volumes other than BAB1, BAB3, and BAB5 that have utilization greater than 20 percent but less than 90 percent.
Note: The first DSN and VOLUME entry fields in the dialog have a continuation line. You must completely fill the first line before using the next line because the two lines are treated as one contiguous string.
The following tables describe each data set filtering report and the data set filtering parameters.
