28377 - New Task Mini Trace Available in CICS TS V5.6
Track: Application Architecture Development

Time: 3:00 PM - 3:25 PM
Room: Room 2
One of the major issues related to long running tasks is the amount of information available in the Trace Table especially for suspended tasks. The longer a task is suspended, the more likely that the information regarding the task will be overlaid in the Trace Table making it difficult to see what the task was doing prior to the suspension. Some times trying to find out information regarding the suspended task requires turning on the Auxiliary Trace at a high CPU cost. CICS TS V5.6 incorporated a new feature where a mini trace table associated with each task is maintained. This presentation provides some information as to what this new feature in CICS TS V5.6 does and how it works.
