I know that I am not alone in my fascination with the so-called "Flower Box" that is produced by the IEFACTRT SMF exit, because I have seen references to collections in other web pages over the years.  (The one that comes to mind is at: PlanetMVS.)  So, as soon as I got MVS 3.8 running smoothly, I started looking at versions of IEFACTRT that would run under MVS 3.8 and provided the information that I wanted to see in my own "Flower Box".

If you decide to install one of the exits that I have included here, you will need to have run the prerequisite jobs from Volker Bandke's instructions which set up the SMP datasets and procedures.  The specific jobs that must be run are:  MVS0040 (Build SMP libraries), MVS0050 (Add Stage 1 output to SMP datasets), and MVS0060 (Build SMP procedures).  If you have followed my instructions for building MVS 3.8, I include a single jobstream which combines all three of these jobs - sysgen05.jcl - in the installmvs.tgz archive.

1 - Westerman 2 - Kaiser Foundation
3 - Memorex

I have at least a half dozen more, but they will require more extensive retrofitting to run under MVS 3.8 as they all use SMF Record 30 instead of the Record 04/05 pair that was used under MVS 3.8.  As I find the time to convert them, and where I can, additional versions will appear here.

I hope that you have found my instructions useful.  If you have questions that I can answer to help expand upon my explanations and examples shown here, please don't hesitate to send them to me:
