Loop of reports being written to VSE POWER Q from CICS

Question & Answer


Question

I tried to make a change to our CICS Language Environment (LE) options by utilizing the LSTQ option on the TERMTHDACT parameter. I catalogued the CEECOPT.OBJ and PHASE,re-loaded it into the SVA, then I enter NEWC CICS transaction.

Now it just keeps executing over and over in a loop. If I enter CEMT I TASK, I see TRANS(IESX) getting executed repeatedly. I have to keep deleting the output so our POWER Q doesn't fill up.

The data being written to the VSE POWER Q looks like this:

Options Report for Enclave D0101 04/09/18 1:38:10 PM Language Environment for z/VSE V1 R4.6

 LAST WHERE SET        OPTION
 --------------------------------------------------
 Installation default  ABPERC(NONE)
 Installation default  ABTERMENC(ABEND)
 Installation default  NOAIXBLD
 Installation default  ALL31(ON)
 Installation default  ANYHEAP(4096,4080,ANYWHERE,F
 Installation default  BELOWHEAP(4096,4080,FREE)
 Installation default  CBLOPTS(ON)
 Installation default  CBLPSHPOP(ON)
 Installation default  CHECK(OFF)
 Installation default  COUNTRY(US)
 Installation default  NODEBUG
 Installation default  DEPTHCONDLMT(10)
 Installation default  ENVAR("")
 Installation default  ERRCOUNT(20)

Answer

The JCL for CEECOPT.PHASE showed that the RPTOPTS parameter was also turned on.

From the LE Customization Guide:

RPTOPTS

After an application has run, RPTOPTS generates a report of the runtime options in effect while the application was running.

In the batch environment, LE/VSE directs the report to the filename specified in the MSGFILE run-time option.

In the CICS environment, LE/VSE directs the report to the CESE transient data queue.

The manual provides a sample of the report showing the heading of: .

 LAST WHERE SET           OPTION
 Programmer default       ABPERC(NONE)...

Turn LE/VSE Run-Time option RPTOPTS off to stop generating the report.
