can Splunk parse z/OS SMF data not using a third party software ?

It's easy to ingest a file, does Splunk know how to parse various SMF record types ?
Is there a free dashboard to report on SMF ?

hello there,

i think that you would have to use a third party tool (the only way ive seen it work) but i might be wrong.
maybe the following links can help:

https://answers.splunk.com/answers/88172/getting-data-from-mainframe-system.html (very good answer in the same topic)

hope it helps
