Hi,

To get capture the runtime dumps, you will have to define some datasets (SYSABOUT etc ) in the JCL particular in sort steps to capture abend details (SOC7)

Hi Suman,

As VJ said SYSABOUT is a DDNAME of a JCL stmt that receives a system dump when the jobstep using it abends.

It was used in one of the earlier OSs and is obsolete now. You might want to look at the JCL Ref Manual used by your particular OS to get the details of what kind of dump data it produces.

SORT uses it no differently than any other job run in the OS you're using.
