Have statistics Records (CT and maybe others) indicate the true node a transfer was sent to when ALT.NODEDEF is coded in the Netmap for a node

Currently  if two nodes are defined NODEA and NODEB in the netmap and NODEA  has ALT.NODEDEF=NODEB coded, if NODEA can not sent to its primary IP address coded then the file will be sent to the IP address coded on NODEB. The issue is that the CT statistics record indicates that the node the file was sent to was NODEA not NODEB. This only indication in the CT statistics record indicating that the file was sent to NODEB is the IP address of NODEB that is recorded.

How will this idea be used?

I had opened a SR with IBM regarding this issue and they responded with Connect Direct was working as designed. I'm wanting the correct node name to be recorded in the statistic(s) records so that our internal reporting will be accurate and our support staff will be able to accuratly determine the node to which a file was actually sent.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that it would be valuable to enhance the CT record to display the updated nodename in this instance.  I have accepted this as an uncommitted candidate and we will look to add it to our roadmap moving forward.
