CICS file request statistics show zeroes while VSAM EXCP request statistics is not zero

You enter CEMT PERFORM STATISTICS on an hourly basis. The output of the DFHSTUP program with TYPE=FILE, for some files during the hourly interval, shows zeroes for ALL file requests (Browse, Get, Get Upd, Add). However, there are nonzero values for these files when looking at VSAM EXCP request - data ( A17DSXCP ). Why are there I/Os showing up in the DFHSTUP report as EXCPs if there is no activity for the files during the one hour interval?

Restarting CICS TS after defining new DFHJnn logger datasets

You need to delete and define several MVS log streams on DASD that map to your CICS user journals (such as DFHJ01, DFHJ02, DFHJ03 and DFHJ04). After you delete and define these log streams, do you need to use START=INITIAL when bringing up your Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS) region?
