Refresh processing

Refresh processing is what occurs when a fault entry is being rewritten due to user information, having been updated during interactive reanalysis. The user information which might cause this refresh processing is any of the following:
  • User name, user title, or lock flag changed via the INFO command or the "File->Fault Entry Information" action-bar pull-down menu option.
  • User notes against dump storage addresses added, deleted, or modified.
When either or both of these situations occur
  • User information has changed
  • A minidump with a size that exceeds the MaxMinidumpPages option in effect is first added to a fault entry
then a display like the example shown in Figure 161: Sample refresh processing exit prompt is presented upon exiting the interactive reanalysis report.
Figure 1. Sample refresh processing exit prompt

  User information has been added or modified.                                
  Press Enter to refresh the current history file entry, or press PF3/PF12    
  to cancel.                                                                  
  A minidump does not currently exist for this fault entry, but one will be   
  saved unless suppressed using the option below.                             
  MaxMinidumpPages Option . . : 100                                           
  Current Minidump Pages. . . : 163                                           
  Suppress Minidump . . . . . : N (Y/N)                                       
  *** Bottom of data.                                                         

If the display is prompting for both the saving of updated user information, and the writing of a minidump, then the minidump can only be written if the user information is also saved.

To return to the Fault Entry List display using the selected options, press the Enter key.

To return to the Fault Entry List display using the default options, which are to save the updated user information but suppress the minidump, enter the CANCEL command.

It is not possible to end this display using the END or EXIT commands.

If instead the reanalysis is performed in batch, then a user exit can be used to perform the equivalent function. This exit is effectively an End Processing user exit, and is specified using the RefreshExits option (see RefreshExits).
