CICS Logging

Hello

1/

I add the INITPARM parameter in the SIT of few CICS regions.

Here follows the syntax.

************ LOGGING DYNATRACE ********************

INITPARM=(ZDTPLT='MEPC[,F]')

As i specified F as Fine option of logging, I expected that every initialization of 5 minutes cycle of DTAX transaction would be written in the MSGUSER.

ZDTP002F fine 01/28/2021 09:57:20 ZDTP002F DTAX 5 minutes cycle begin

ZDTP003F fine 01/28/2021 09:57:20 ZDTP003F AgentID = FFD887F6

ZDTP005F fine 01/28/2021 09:57:21 ZDTP005F DTAX 5 minutes cycle end

 

I also expected to receive the following fine messages at initialization :

ZDTP010F fine 01/28/2021 09:52:15 ZDTP010F Pre initialize_msg zDC Agent ID: 00000000

ZDTP008F fine 01/28/2021 09:52:17 ZDTP008F INIT completed with rc:0

 

I managed to receive these message when i enter the option 'Fine' on the Dtax view.

Could you explain me why fine messages aren't written when mentioned in the initparm SIT parameter ?

 

2/

I looked for a "initialization complete" or successful, kind of information message in the msguser for Dynatrace environment, and i couldn't find one.

Could i considered message ZDTP020I as an information that the environment has successfully been initialized ?

Is there a message more proper for initialization complete cics should receive?

If not would it possible to write one in the cics log?

thanks in advance for your reply ?

Regards

Sébastien Arjo

Hi , 

  We have updated the documentation to fix this misunderstanding.   The CICS INITPARM for fine logging should be INITPARM=(ZDTPLT='MEPC,F')  if you zDC name is MEPC (the default).  Please see https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/technology-support/operating-systems/zos/installation/install... for the updated online documentation.
