Collector keywords Use the following keywords to define options for the EPILOG collector.
This option sets the interval at which EPILOG collects, combines, and writes data to the EDS and SMF. This interval can be set to the RMF cycle or to any amount of time between 10 and 120 minutes (2 hours). The default is the RMF cycle, or 15 minutes if RMF is not installed or is not active.
This option sets the cycle at which &E. collects bottleneck data, expressed in 100ths of a second. You can set this cycle to any value between 50/100 and 1000 (or between .5 and 10 seconds). The default is 500/100, or 5 seconds.
This option specifies whether to collect statistics individually for each database. Bottleneck analysis is normally performed for all databases. If you specify YES for this option, EPILOG collects statistics for each individual active database. On a system with many active databases, the storage requirements for EPILOG database collection may be prohibitive. If this is the case, EPILOG sends a WTO message to the system console, and it stops individual database collection. Valid entries for this keyword are YES and NO. The default is NO.
This option causes EPILOG to write the collected data to SMF as well as the EDS at the end of every collection interval. This option is the default.
NOSMFDATA SMFNUM (or SMFN)
This option causes EPILOG not to write to SMF.
This option sets a number from 0–255 that represents the EPILOG ID for collected data. When EPILOG writes to SMF, it must have a way to separate this data from the data that SMF normally collects. Choose a record number that is not already in use. The default is 185.
Other Candle products (OMEGAMON II for MVS, EPILOG for IMS, and DELTAMON® for MVS) also write records to SMF. If any of these products is installed, be sure that OMEGAMON II for DBCTL does not use an SMF record number that is already assigned. Default numbers for these Candle products are:

182 and 183 185
EPILOG for MVS DELTAMON for MVS
