How will this idea be used?

It will be beneficial since user could utilize it to calculate the transfer rate. We went through a few issues recently where there were decrease of transfer rate of upload to our Prod node from one specific distributed node. So I was thinking to utilize the TP record to report the transfer rate. Also, it will be very useful data for us to tune our session limit.

    An alternate method of providing this feature is now available in Connect Direct for z/OS 6.1.

    The average time spent doing a SEND or RECEIVE is now reported for each interval. Multiplying this average by the number of SENDs or RECEIVEs in the interval yields the total time doing SEND or RECEIVE during the interval. Dividing that into the bytes sent or received yields the average transfer rate during the interval.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  We have reviewed it internally and believe that it would be beneficial to enhance our logs to better track time tracking.  This request will be accepted as an uncommitted candidate and we will work to add it to the roadmap moving forward.
