With z/VSE 5.1 is a new release of the CEETRACE application development diagnosis tool.
The new version documentation can be downloaded for free and the tool activated on any z/VSE 5.1 system from this link.
CEETRACE is designed to complement the already available LE z/VSE dump information to aid in application problem analysis by providing an execution statement history prior to any subsequent application failure similar to the previously available READY TRACE facility of DOS/VS COBOL.
New with CEETRACE V1.2.0 is :
Mini Dump feature. When a statement execution history report is produced in response to an application failure, provide a formatted dump of the condition information block and , if present, the machine state information at the time of the failure. Note – LSTQ destination is not supported by mini-dump.
Auto Reporting feature. Allows the production of an execution statement history report based upon some simple entry-point-name, statement number or statement execution count criteria.
HLL statement exit. Provide a user exit point at each HLL statement executed within a CEETRACE enabled application. See sample CELHLLXT.Z in your LE z/VSE installation library.
See the CEETRACE Installation and Users guide included in the download zip file for all the details on existing and new features of CEETRACE.
