Question:

How to turn on tracing for CA XCOM for z/OS?

Answer:

To trace TYPE=EXECUTE batch transfers
     use TRACE=YES in the XCOMJOB PARM.
     for example,   PARM='TYPE=EXECUTE,TRACE=YES'

To trace the TYPE=SCHEDULE only
     for example, PARM='TYPE=SCHEDULE,TRACE=YES'    Note this traces the schedule to the server only, 
     not the transfer.

The trace is written to the output of the XCOMJOB.

For TYPE=SCHEDULE and ISPF transfers, use the console and specify TRACE to turn tracing on and NOTRACE to turn tracing off

 To trace all transfers:

        F xcomstc,trace,*   

This will trace EVERYTHING in the server, so it would be best to do it at an off time, or (even better) use a test server with no other transfer activity going on.

 To trace a specific destination

This will trace only activities between the server and the partner at nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn IP address. 

        F xcomstc,trace,ipname (or address)     to trace a transfer to a specific IP destination only

        NOTE: To enable tracing for a specific IP partner, you must have 12.0 PTF RO96651 SELECTIVE TRACING BY IP ADDRESS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY applied.  

       F xcomstc,trace,luname                        to trace a transfer to a specific LU only

    where xcomstc is the xcom started task name

XCOM opens a TRACE DD in output of the server job.


To terminate all tracing 

/F xcomstc,NOTRACE,* 

or specify the remote destination to turn off tracing selectively.
