Introduction:

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.

     

    Instructions:
    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).
