Question:

The client just installed CA Symdump CICS r 10 and would like to know if they can run multiple trace format region address spaces program IN25TRCM? The client would like to run a trace format region for just CICS 4.2 and one for CICS 5.2 is this possible? If so what parameters need to be changed in IN25OPTS?

Environment:
Z/OSCICS
Answer:

You can run multiple trace format regions. You will need to change the IN25OPTS parameter TRCFFMID=
The default is TRCFFMID=SYMDTRCF and your second region will be the name you choose like for example TRCFFMID=SYMDTR53
To see the CA Symdump CICS trace options in effect you can enter the VRPT transactiopn at a clear screen in CICS and select option 2
2 Global Options - Display Installation Options
All the trace options start with TRCF*
Each Trace format region needs a unique name. CA CCI – ENF will dynamically work with the new name.
