Performing interactive reanalysis

Interactive reanalysis provides several advantages over batch reanalysis:
  • The sections of the report that are of interest can be selected and examined separately.
  • Any storage area that is included in the associated minidump or MVS dump data set can be displayed, regardless of whether it is included in the Fault Analyzer report.
  • Source code information (if provided via compiler listing or side file) can be viewed in its entirety.
  • This method is the only way to analyze CICS® system abends.
Note: Whereas the information in this chapter assumes that the interactive reanalysis is performed under ISPF, it is possible to instead perform this under CICS®. When doing so, restrictions might apply. These restrictions are described in Performing interactive reanalysis under CICS.
