You add the inclusion and exclusion criteria to the options table (CADVTABL) to control which system dumps are captured.

Sometimes it is necessary to suppress the dump from CA SymDump System dump capture.


Even when a dump satisfies the selection criteria, you can exclude the dump from capture by including the following DD statement in the JCL for the abending step:


This DD statement, when specified in the JCL, unconditionally prevents any system dump from being captured for this job. It cannot be overridden by any setting in the options table, and it cannot be overridden by user exit CADVUSR1.
