Using Exclude/Include options with dump registration processing

While Exclude/Include options are also applicable to dump registration processing, they are not very useful since not much is known about the conditions which resulted in the dump. This lack of knowledge is due to the dump being written by the dump services address space (for details, see Dump registration processing), and Z Abend Investigator therefore invoked here, instead of in the address space which issued the dump.

It is therefore recommended that the dump registration Analysis Control user exit (see Analysis Control user exit (MVS SVC Dump registration)) is instead used to control the inclusion or exclusion of dump registration processing, primarily based on information in the ENV data area (for details, see ENV - Common exit environment information).

In the ENV data area, the field JOB_TYPE is set to 'D' for dump registration processing.
