Question:
I attempted to view a specific transaction log for one of our CICS regions. Instead of returning incidents of the transaction, SYSView appears to return data based on OTRANS. The transaction I searched for does spawn other background tasks in the region. How do I cause SYSView to return only the specific, requested transactions.
Answer:
Two options from the CTRANLOG display you can enter the SELECT command.
I.E. SELECT TRAN EQ ADMH or from the FORMATS display Command Screen Format Type Parm CTRANLOG CTRANLOG DEFAULT SELECT TRAN EQ ADMH
Or you can create a new format for the command using the SELECT statement.
Per HELP for the command:
Specifies the transaction that is to be displayed.
The "Tran" and "OTran" fields will be examined for a match.
