The CICSTraceMax option is applicable to CICS® system dump analysis only, and is used to specify the maximum CICS trace table size in kilobytes which can be included in a fault entry minidump.

The value of max_trace_size must be in the range 0 - 2097151 kilobytes. If not specified, the CICSTraceMax option value defaults to 256 kilobytes.

If the actual CICS trace size exceeds the CICSTraceMax option value in effect, then the trace table is read from the associated CICS system dump during fault entry reanalysis.
