Notes:
  1. Either commas or blank characters are permitted as delimiters when repeating suboptions or values.

This option is applicable to the real-time or batch reanalysis reports only. It does not affect the interactive reanalysis report.

Z Abend Investigator by default places information that is generally considered associated with an event in the "Event Details" section for that event. However, by using the SystemWidePreferred option, Z Abend Investigator can be directed to instead placing such information in the "System-Wide Information" section of the report.

The following suboptions are available to change the placement of various event-related areas of the report:
ControlBlocks
Specifies that all event-related data that is usually placed under the heading "Associated Control Blocks" in the "Event Details" section of the report are to be placed in the "System-Wide Information" section instead. This data includes the following control blocks for the various execution environments:
Table 1. Control blocks affected
Execution environment Control blocks affected Target System-Wide Information section subheading
DB2® SQLCA "DB2 Control Blocks" in the "DB2 Information" section
IMS AIB, DIB, and UIB "IMS Control Blocks" in the "IMS Information" section

Explanations for any control block fields are placed following the control blocks in the "System-Wide Information" section of the report.

This suboption can be abbreviated to CB.

OpenFiles
Specifies that all event-related data that is usually placed under the heading "Associated Open Files" in the "Event Details" section of the report are to be placed in the "System-Wide Information" section instead.

This suboption can be abbreviated to OF.

StorageAreas
Specifies that all event-related data that is usually placed under the heading "Associated Storage Areas" in the "Event Details" section of the report are instead to be placed in the "System-Wide Information" section under the subheading "Storage Areas".
The types of storage areas can further be selected using the following StorageAreas suboptions:
Fmt
This suboption specifies high-level language program storage areas for which compiler listings or side files are available, and therefore are presented formatted in the report as opposed to hex-dumped. These areas are given separate subheadings within the "Storage Areas" section for easier identification.

This suboption can be abbreviated to F.

Hex
This suboption specifies storage areas that are presented in hex-dump format. These types of storage areas are combined for all events and placed in ascending address sequence under the common subheading "Hex-Dumped Storage" within the "Storage Areas" section, with labeling of addresses to indicate their origin. This suboption is the default.

This suboption can be abbreviated to H.

*
Specifying an asterisk (*) implies specification of all suboptions.

This suboption can be abbreviated to SA.

Messages
Specifies that all event-related messages that are usually placed under the heading "Associated Messages" in the "Event Details" section of the report are to be placed in the "System-Wide Information" section instead.

This suboption can be abbreviated to M.

*
Specifying an asterisk (*) implies specification of all suboptions.

Each specification of the SystemWidePreferred option is cumulative. To reset all SystemWidePreferred suboptions at once, use the NoSystemWidePreferred option.
