Collecting SVC dumps of the Gateway daemon address space
The IBM® support organization might request an SVC dump of the Gateway address space, or a problem might cause an SVC dump to be generated. Options are available for ensuring that information about the required components is captured.
Use the following command (or a similar command) to set the required dump options:
To take an SVC dump of a running Gateway daemon, use the following command sequence, setting the recommended options specifically for this dump instance:
DUMP COMM=(<Dump Title>) R xx,SDATA=(<Dump Options>),CONT R xx,JOBNAME=(<CICSTG Jobname>,OMVS),CONT R xx,DSPNAME=('OMVS'.*),END
The command is shown split over several replies due to the restricted space available on the MVS™ system command line. You can enter it through the extended console command line as a single command:
DUMP COMM=(<Dump Title>),SDATA=(<Dump Options>),JOBNAME=(<CICSTG Jobname>, OMVS),DSPNAME=('OMVS'.*)
The system log shows the result of the command, including the name of SVC dump data set, if successful.
