The segmented monitoring option is set to off by default. You can enable it with or without CNTL menu support, and with or without password protection.
Segmented monitoring should be used sparingly for special debugging needs, such as when only certain pieces of code should be monitored because of excessive overhead or to bypass automatic breakpoints that are generated when debugging an application program.
Important! Improper use of segmented monitoring options could damage your CICS system because CA InterTest for CICS places invalid machine instructions in application programs at the segmented monitoring locations specified by the user. Additional details are provided in the user guide.
The most common way to set a segmented monitoring breakpoint is through the LIST facility.
To set a location for a MON option in your source listing, enter a plus sign, +, to the left of the statement in your listing where you want monitoring to begin, and press Enter.
Likewise, to set a location for a NOM option, enter a minus sign, -, to the left of the statement in your listing where you want monitoring to stop, and press Enter. If a password is required, enter the password at the prompt.
Segmented monitoring is recommended for debugging Hogan applications.
