Active diagnostics

To perform active diagnostics, you can use the SMDIAGxx system parameter when you are directed to do so by BMC Customer Support.


MainView SRM logic has internal ESTAEs designed to capture SDUMP data for in-depth diagnostics. If you are using another diagnostic product that also captures dump information, such as Compuware Abend-AID, you should disable the other diagnostic product for MainView SRM products. Consult your software vendor for the appropriate method of deactivating the diagnostic product.

MainView SRM reads the SMDIAGxx diagnostic parameter member during system startup. The DIAG=xx suffix that is specified in SMMSYSxx member indicates which version of SMDIAGxx contains diagnostic specifications that the active MainView SRM configuration uses.
