Using diagnostic commands

You can use Fast Path Offline Suite commands to help with diagnostics by using the DUMP facility.

Using the DUMP facility

The DUMP command requests a dump for diagnostic information when BMC Customer Support instructs you to provide a dump.

You will generate a dump, based on the following DUMP_TYPE keyword values:

  • ABEND terminates the job, and generate a dump to the SYSUDUMP or SYSMDUMP data set

  • SNAP generates a snap dump of storage areas to the data set indicated in the PFPSNAP DD

  • SVC generates a system dump of the address space to the system dump data set

The following table provides information on the DUMP command set, its keywords, and parameters.
