Issue/Introduction

I want to check what AUTO= and DEFER= parameter is in effect for each CICS region with a DBOC INQ type command. 

Looking at the CUSMAC member is unreliable and I do not have DBCGSPR to reverse engineer the CUSLIB member.

 

Environment

Component : CA DATACOM CICS SERVICES

 

Resolution

The easiest way to see how URTs are defined in a CICS region is to issue a "DBOC INQ=????" transaction. As an example, you might get a display like this:

DBOC INQ=????                            
                                        
URT 0001(STD UNOPENED AUTO )            
URT 0002(STD OPEN          ) ACTIVE=000 
URT 0003(STD UNOPENED DEFER)            
URT 0004-0009                HAVE NO CSD
URT 0010(STD UNOPENED DEFER)            
URT 0011(STD UNOPENED AUTO )            
URT 0012(STD UNOPENED AUTO )            
URT 0013(STD UNOPENED AUTO )            
URT 0014-0019                HAVE NO CSD
URT 0020(SQL UNOPENED AUTO )            
URT 0021-0100                HAVE NO CSD
URT 0101(STD UNOPENED AUTO )            
URT 0102-0996                HAVE NO CSD
URT 0997(STD UNOPENED AUTO )            
URT 0998-0999                HAVE NO CSD
DC00380I  TRANSACTION COMPLETED.                        

Here is a key for what you see above.

Dark Blue URTs marked AUTO - These are defined in the DBCVTPR AUTO[n]= parameter, or they were added with the DBOC AUTO= transaction.

Dark Red URTs marked DEFER - These are defined in the DBCVTPR DEFER[n]= parameter or they were added with the DBOC DEFER= transaction.

Dark Green URTs with no mark - These are opened during PLTPI processing in the CICS region.

Black URTs - these are the rest of the URTs up to the limit of MAXURTs in the DBCVTPR, and they typically do not have a load module nor are they defined in the DFHCSD.

If you have a lot of each kind of URT, you can also list each kind separately, using commands

  • DBOC INQ=AUTO
  • DBOC INQ=DEFER
  • DBOC INQ=PLT
