Reply with quote

I have just recently encountered a CICS ASRA abend and quite confused on how to resolved it. Normally, I would only look for the OFFSET from the dump and this will already lead me to the corresponding line in the compiled program listing where the abend might possibly occured. But I could not find the corresponding OFFSET from the compiled program listing.
Below is the actual PSW and OFFSET from the dump:
PSW 078D2000 B90107B00
OFFSET 0001790

I then used the available PSW from the dump and did try to search it from the listing. In the compiled program listing, i looked for 78D2 and what I found is 0178D2(with corresponding program line number). :!:

Please advise then if what I found(0178D2) is the same as 78D2. :idea:
Anyway, would appreciate if you can provide any avaialble reference/forums related to PSW.

No the first half of the PSW has no relationship to the values you found in memory.

Thanks!
Anyway, just wanted to confirm my understanding then.
So in order for me to resolve this abend, I still have to use the value from OFFSET to get the particular program line number where the abend might have occurred. Is my understanding correct?

For PSW, how can it be useful then in resolving ASRA abend?

The address pointing to the 0C7 is in the second half of the PSW.

As per your reply, using the sample PSW I have provided, 'B90107B00' should lead me to the actual line where the abend has happened.

Thanks for the help!
