Display BRMS log

The DSPLOGBRM command is based on the file QA1ALG in QUSRBRM in which the time is recorded as zonded field 6 0. This does not provide enough details for the DSPLOGBRM command to show the right order.

Use Case:

Please have a look at the DSPLOGBRM example:

    The BRMS team believes that the request described has been solved and is available in the 7.2 release with PTF SI688445 and in the 7.3 release with PTF SI68846. A timestamp field has been added to the QA1ALG file to help show the right order. With this change the STRMNTBRM command needs to be run after applying the PTFs to migrate existing timestamps into the new timestamp field. The right order will take affect for new entries logged after the PTF is applied.

    The BRMS team will use this request as input to planning but no commitment is made or implied. This request will be updated in the future if IBM implements it. The BRMS team will use votes and comments from others in the community to help prioritize this request.
