Hi..

I am new to CICS.
During production support the operator told me that he purged a looping CICS transaction.

My task is to find out who gave that transaction.

Please help how to find this and from where.
Please treat me as an absolute beginner to CICS, although I have some experience of batch enviornment.

Thank you...

AADF is not available at all sites -- Abend Aid is a vendor product that must be paid for so not all sites install it.

If your site has a monitoring tool such as Mainview, it can be used to look at transaction history such as what you're asking, shahdil. There also may be information about the transaction in the system log for the CICS region. Contact your site support group for assistance in determining what is available at your site and how to use the site resources to find out what you need to know.

Hi..

Thanks for the response. But, the transaction AADF transaction is not recognised. I suppose it is because we don't have "abend aid" installed in our system.
We have "fault analyzer" instead. Could please tell its corresponding transaction.

I did some finding and there is a command "CEMT INQUIRE DUMPDS" which give the dump dataset dd name. Please tell how to view the dataset corresponding to this dd name.

Thanks again..

Depending upon how the transaction was removed, there may not be anything in the dump data set to look at. If the transaction was purged with a dump, you need to contact your site support group for help in reading the dump since this requires some in depth knowledge of CICS.

Your best bet, under all circumstances, is to contact your site support group for assistance. Any advice we can provide may or may not apply to your site since different sites do things differently.

Hi ,
In the cics job log, you can see the transaction which was looping and i guess when the transaction is purged, that also comes in the cics job log. You can go to spool, see the the job log of the particular cics where the transaction was purged. hope it helps.

cheers
rohit
