Question:
What is required in order to run the IBM Trace NMI for packet intercept in Netmaster 12.1?
Answer:
To set up the NMI itself you first need to ensure that the proper security permissions are defined as noted here 
https://docops.ca.com/ca-netmaster-network-management-for-tcpip/12-1/en/installing/preparing-the-ibm-communications-server/trace-network-management-interface 

Ensure that the following PTFs are applied 
RO80964 CC2D760 EXPLOIT TCP/IP TRACE NMI (EZBRCIFR) 
RO83337 CC2D760 NEGATIVE NUMBER FOR TOTAL EE RTP PIPES 
RO88666 CC2D760 SSI HIGH CPU WITH TRACE NMI 
RO93970 CC11C10 SELFTEST FOR NEW NMI PACKET INTERFACE 
RO97633 CC2D760 REAL STORAGE CREEP USING PATRACENMI 
SO03988 CC2D760 SSI ABEND N-Y4S-02 AFTER NMI CONNECTION CLOSED 

If you are running z/OS 2.3, please review technical document KB000103311. 

Once that is complete add 
PATRACENMI=YES to the SSIPARMS in your SOLVESSI PARMLIB and cycle the SSI.
Additional Information:
The trace NMI is delivered as part of Netmaster Network Management for TCP/IP 12.2, but security setup and z/OS 2.3 items still apply.
