Issue:
The client turn on system wide monitoring for CA Intertest CICS in their CICS region by entering command CNTL=ON,PROG=.ALL
This command will monitor every program executed in the CICS region. But when the client executes their test program COBDEMO that is design to produce an ASRA abend CA Intertest CICS does not intercept the abend.
 
Environment:
Z/OS 
CICS
 
Cause:
One of the application programmers did a wildcard exclude for all programs that started with CO* this caused the COBDEMO program to be excluded from monitoring.
 
Resolution:
The client removed the wildcard exclude from CA Intertest CICS and excluded programs from monitoring by using the entire program name.
 
To see which programs are excluded from monitoring at a clear screen in CICS enter the following command and press enter. This will display the programs being excluded from monitoring.
 
CNTL=LIST
 
The following report will be displayed.
 
CA InterTest Monitoring Table list, 12:58 p.m.
IGZCPAC    IGZXLPKA
0041 FREE SLOTS IN INITIAL TABLE
CA InterTest Exclusion  Table list, 12:58 p.m.
CO*
0026 FREE SLOTS IN INITIAL TABLE
           * End of Report *
 
In this report you can see programs that start with CO* are in the Exclusion Table list. This caused COBDEMO not to be monitored.
