This is a summary of how to use the CA XCOM internal TCP/IP trace. This may only be turned on for all remote TCP transfers at once. The TCP tracing is logged in QPRINT spool files.


    How to turn on the Trace
    You can use the parameter TCPTRACE(*ON) to start CA XCOM internal TCP/IP tracing with the following commands:
    • When starting a TCP/IP listener (STRXCTCP, STRXCTCPS, STRXCTCP6, or STRXCTCP6S)
    • When issuing a transfer command (SENDFILE, GETFILE, SENDJOB, or SENDREPORT)
    Where to find the Trace
    • When tracing a listener, output is generated for the listener and all its slave jobs.
    • When tracing a transfer command, trace output is generated in the job where the CA XCOM file transfer is run, as follows:
      • For a foreground transfer (parameter ENQ(*NO)) this is the current job.
      • For a background transfer (parameter ENQ(*YES)) this is one of the background jobs XCOMBGxx in the XCOM2SBS subsystem.
    Turning off the Trace
    • This is for the listeners. Issue a stop for the listener, for example, STPXCTCP OPTION(*IMMED), and restart it normally with the parameter STRXCTCP TCPTRACE(*OFF).
