Hi all,

I have a program which is associated with a transaction(GCXX). It is just a controller module which just XCTL's 2 modules and not having any screen's associted with it.

I suspect that the transaction GCXX is wrongly defined for that program. Is there any way i can find whether that transaction is invoked at any time?

Thanks,
Suma

IIRC, STAT will show program usage counts.

SMF statistics for CICS will show if the program is used.

Or, at the end of the day, do CEMT I PROG(????????) against the program invoked by transaction GCXX and see if the use count is greater than zero. If so, it has been used since the CICS region started.

Thanks for your input.

I know that the program would have surely been invoked in the cics region. But i want to check whether GCXX transaction is the one which invoked that program.

Is there any way to find that?

Thanks.

Why not just check the definition (and correct it if it's incorrect)?

SMF records should record any instance of the transaction being run.
