Issue:

While an application programmer was attempting to debug a large application program, the CICS region hung and needed to be recycled. 

Environment:
InterTest for CICS 9.1, CTS 4.1.
Cause:

The EDSALIM was too small.  For CTS/TS 4.1, the default is 34M, this region was set at 42M. 

Resolution:

Increase the EDSALIM.  The recommendation was to increase it to 90M which resolved the problem. 

Additional Information:

Refer to the EDSALIM system initialization parameter as described in the IBM Knowledge Center
