Issue/Introduction



The client just completed the installation of CA Intertest for CICS r 10. When using the COBOL demo program shipped with the product COBDEMO the client noticed in the CICS log that a system dump for an ASRA abend is being suppressed.  
DFHDU0205 A11IC4S5 A SYSTEM DUMP FOR DUMPCODE: AP0001 , WAS SUPPRESSED BY THE DUMP TABLE OPTION FOR THIS DUMPCODE.
Who is suppressing this dump?  Is CICS suppressing this dump?

Environment

Z/OSCICS

Resolution

For ASRA abends CICS creates two dumps. A System dump and a transaction dump. Since the client has CICS configured to suppress system dumps CEMT I SYD(ASRA) the client receives message
D
FHDU0205 A11IC4S5 A SYSTEM DUMP FOR DUMPCODE: AP0001 , WAS SUPPRESSED BY THE DUMP TABLE OPTION FOR THIS DUMPCODE

If CICS was not configured to suppress the system dump then CA Intertest for CICS would suppress the dump and the following message would be generated. 

DFHDU0205 A11IC4S5 A SYSTEM DUMP FOR DUMPCODE: AP0001 , WAS SUPPRESSED BY THE XDUREQ USER EXIT  

CICS gets control first at the CICS dump global user exit XDUREQ. If CICS is configured to suppress system dumps you will receive the CICS dump suppression message. If CICS is not suppressing system dumps then you will receive the CA Intertest version of the dump suppression message.     

 

CA Intertest for CICS will also suppress the transaction dump if the abending program is being monitored by CA Intertest for CICS.
