Question:

Starting with CA Intertest for CICS release 10 you can now record, or log, a monitoring session for later reuse when using CA InterTest for CICS. This new option lets you record sessions, reuse them, and delete them when you are done. Reusing these sessions lets you implement repeatable testing, which can improve the efficiency and consistency of your debugging tests. This option is enabled through the new MLOG commands. The breakpoints are store in a VSAM file called PROTMLOG. Can the PROTMLOG file be shared between multiple CICS regions?

Environment:
Z/OSCICS
Answer:

The PROTMLOG file CANNOT be shared between multiple CICS regions at this time. The PROTMLOG VSAM custer is defined as SHARE(2,3). You cannot change the share parameter. The installer must define a unique PROTMLOG VSAM file to each CICS region.
