DEBUG Initialization Parameter

Various settings on the DEBUG=nnnnnnnn initialization parameter turn on a specific trace option or any combination of options. In the syntax for the DEBUG initialization parameter, nnnnnnnn represents the DEBUG setting in hexadecimal.

You can place trace DD statements in the system without slowing down IBM® Connect:Direct® performance if you do not turn on the trace by specifying the DEBUG parameter.

For problems with SNA connections, use the following four function traces merged into a single output file:

  • Session manager trace
  • Separate trace per task trace
  • Long RPL trace
  • COPY routine trace
Note: If the problem occurs during file transfer or session establishment of node connections, run the trace on both the sending and receiving nodes.
