Issue/Introduction

My LPAR uses CA Date Simulator to change the current date and time.  How can I let users know if there application program is using CA Date Simulator?  

Environment

Z/OS

Resolution

I just ran my test COBOL program and I used Date Simulator to change the current date of 10-06-20 to 02/29/2020

My Job output has the following messages when Date Simulator gets control of the program to change the date.

15.18.12 JOB24152 WARP000I: TRANSCENTURY DATE SIMULATOR WILL WARP DATE TO 15:18:39 ON 02/29/2020
15.18.12 JOB24152 IEF403I TIMECOB - STARTED - TIME=15.18.12
15.18.12 JOB24152 WARP001I: STCK TYPE INSTRUCTION PROPERLY HOOKED AT OFFSET 01F356C OF PROGRAM CEEPLPKA (ADDRESS 3B20656C)
15.18.12 JOB24152 WARP001I: STCK TYPE INSTRUCTION PROPERLY HOOKED AT OFFSET 01F3748 OF PROGRAM CEEPLPKA (ADDRESS 3B206748)
15.18.12 JOB24152 WARP001I: STCK TYPE INSTRUCTION PROPERLY HOOKED AT OFFSET 01F374C OF PROGRAM CEEPLPKA (ADDRESS 3B20674C)

I then see the results in my test COBOL program when it displays the dates.

DATE 20 02 29
DAY 20 060
