    * USERS AFFECTED: All Fault Analyzer Version 11 users.         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 01. Fault analyzer incorrectly reports  *
    *                          COBOL compiler options TRUNC and    *
    *                          CICS.                               *
    *                          APAR PM46050                        *
    *                      02. PL/I overflow exceptions do not     *
    *                          occur after call to IDISNAP.        *
    *                          APAR PM45362                        *
    *                      03. The ENV.TCB_ADDRESS user exit data  *
    *                          area field is always zero.          *
    *                          APAR PM45449                        *
    *                      04. Poor CICS abend analysis            *
    *                          performance.                        *
    *                          APAR PM46049                        *
    *                      05. User "steps" through program with   *
    *                          CEDF and issues PF12 (abend),       *
    *                          User gets EXEC CICS ADDRESS ACEE    *
    *                          screen from Fault Analyzer, which   *
    *                          affects further abend processing.   *
    *                          APAR PM47171                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    01. Incorrect bit interpretation for TRUNC sub-options. CICS
        option cannot be reported without a compiler listing having
        been provided since info byte flag is not set.
    02. The PSW program mask was not saved and restored across the
        IDISNAP call.
    03. The ENV.TCB_ADDRESS field was initialized using the
        high-word of a 64-bit address.
    04. Large number of loaded CICS programs was causing performance
        problems when analysing.
    05. Fault Analyzer's EXEC CICS ADDRESS ACEE command
        does not set the NOEDF bit to suppress EDF processing
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01. TRUNC sub-options corrected. Reporting of CICS option
        removed unless compiler listing has been provided for
        source level support.
    02. The PSW program mask is now saved and restored across the
        IDISNAP call.
    03. The ENV.TCB_ADDRESS field is now initialized as the low-word
        of a 64-bit address.
    04. Internal processing of large number of loaded programs has
        been enhanced to reduce performance overheads.
    05. Fault Analyzer has been changed to set the NOEDF bit on its
        EXEC CICS ADDRESS ACEE command.
