The CICS Transaction Storage Summary display can be important when a transaction's storage has been overlaid by another task, as it helps identify transactions whose storage was near or adjacent to the overlay. When Z Abend Investigator is invoked to analyze a CICS transaction abend, the storage allocations of all other concurrently running tasks are gathered. This information can then be displayed, during interactive reanalysis, in the CICS transaction storage summary display.

The display has two point-and-shoot fields, "Current" and "All", which toggle the display accordingly.

You also can display CICS transaction storage by using the CICSSTG command. See CICSSTG.
