Statistics enhancement

Currently there is no way to interrogate an lu or adjacent node in ndmcom or other utility to see what was the last time the snode was used.

To evaluate usage patterns, we would like a RFE to have a useful tool to track last used timestamp at the node level and display in the statistics.

    This feature is now available in Connect Direct for z/OS 6.1.

    SELECT NETMAP now shows the last time a node was used as the PNODE, the last time it was used as the SNODE, when it was added, and the last time it was updated.
