The Detail option specifies the level of detail that should be included in the fault analysis report as either SHORT, MEDIUM, or LONG.

If more (or less) than the default of 5 extra source lines, before and after the source line for an event, should be shown in the Z Abend Investigator report, then the ExtraSource(lines) suboption can be used. The ExtraSource(lines) suboption affects the number of source lines shown in the detailed event information section only.

The complete Z Abend Investigator fault analysis report contains the following sections:
  • Z Abend Investigator synopsis
  • Z Abend Investigator summary
  • Detailed information about individual events
  • Information not directly related to any event, such as console messages
  • Information about the abending job
  • Z Abend Investigator options in effect
Depending on the specification of the Detail option, all or parts of the complete report are produced:
Detail(SHORT)
  • All sections of the report are included, except for the system-wide information. Detailed information is only included for the point of failure event.
  • Summarized CICS® trace is included (when applicable).
  • CICS Transaction Storage is not included.
Detail(MEDIUM)
  • All sections of the report are included. However, detailed information is only included for events up until (and including) the first abend event that is also the point-of-failure event, or which follows the point-of-failure event. This option is the default.
  • Summarized CICS trace is included (when applicable).
  • CICS Transaction Storage is not included.
Detail(LONG)
  • All sections of the report are included and detailed information is provided for all events.
  • Full CICS trace is included (when applicable).
  • 4K of storage around each user-code event general purpose register is included in the minidump.
  • CICS Transaction Storage is included.

This option does not apply to interactive reanalysis.
