Reply with quote

Hi,

My COBOL program calls DGADCHLA API to SUBMIT a file transmission. I would like to enable API trace for specific file transmissions with long file names.

I have gone through the information given in the below link

https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/CD_PROC_LANG/com.ibm.help.cdprocstmtsparams.doc/cdproc_stmt_zos_Process_Parameters.html

Could someone please help me understand what do they mean by "Specify these bits using hexidecimal notation."? can't I just specify DEBUG=02000000?

Also I understand that RADBDD07 DD name should be coded in JCL to get the trace information. should I also code APITRACE DDNAME? [/url]

Googling connect direct debug mode returned about 9,270,000 hits and one of the first (for me) was http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21544213 which states
Quote:
The "debug" trace is the mechanism for capturing various types of activity within Connect:Direct OS/390 as well as between it and other nodes and operating system components. It can be initiated to trace activity for a single process with a single remote node a single Cicon_biggrin.gif/Plex server or the entire Connect:Direct region or plex. Typically a bit string of 8C00006E captures what is required by support to allow them to diagnose a problem. This bit string should be used unless otherwise instructed.

To trace a single process specify the DEBUG keyword parameter on the PROCESS statement similarly to below:


MYPROC PROCESS SNODE=remote_node DEBUG=8C00006E
So DEBUG=02000000 will work for what you want.

I used DEBUG=02000000, the trace information was present in APITRACE & NDMCMDS. So DEBUG=02000000 worked.
