ARM - Reporting on Performance Data

After you have logged the performance data from the ARM API calls to an external file, you can then use the ARM post-processing macros to read the performance data into SAS data sets for reporting.

There are two ARM post-processing macros. The %ARMPROC macro processes an input ARM log and writes out six SAS data sets that contain the gathered information from the log. The %ARMJOIN macro inputs those six SAS data sets and creates data sets that contain common information about applications and transactions.

Note: The ARM post-processing macros are specific to the SAS implementation of the ARM API. They are not part of the formal ARM API standard.  

After you have the data in SAS data sets, you can use SAS tools to report on the data. The types of reports you produce depend on how you plan to use the performance data. Some suggestions for reporting are
