Trace information

By adding an HFZTRACE DDname to your job, Z Abend Investigator can provide you with trace information that might help you understand why a particular fault is, or is not, being considered a "normal" duplicate of another fault during real-time analysis. For example:
//HFZTRACE DD SYSOUT=*

(See HFZTRACE under CICS for an alternative method of activating this trace under CICS®.)

Note: Only NoDup(NORMAL) trace information is available, not NoDup(CICSFAST).
The trace information is written to the HFZTRACE DDname destination. An example of a NoDup option-processing trace follows:

No duplicate fault exists
Information about the reason for not matching (as for fault ID F00615 in the above example) is only provided for fault entries that are within the time interval in effect for the NoDup option, and if either of the following is true:
