Set Trace options panel

The Set Trace Options panel is displayed when you select option 9 from the Settings Menu.

The panel allows you to view and modify parameters that control the Trace output produced by FM/IMS when it is run in debug mode.

Enter the RESET command to reset all the parameters on the panel to the installation defaults.

Enter the EXIT command (F3) to exit the panel saving the changes you have made.

Enter the CANCEL command (F12) to exit the panel without saving the changes you have made.

Trace destination
Specifies where FM/IMS debug trace output is to be sent:
Send trace output to the current FMNTRC allocation.
Send trace output to the terminal.
Data set
Send trace output to the temporary data set specified in the Data set name field.
Data set name
The temporary trace data set where FM/IMS trace output is directed when you select "Data set" for Trace destination.
Output class
The class of the JES spool queue to be used when the PRINT command is issued while browsing the temporary trace data set.
Trace limit
When run in debug mode, FM/IMS writes the Trace output to a buffer (as for normal debug mode), but the buffer is only written to the Trace destination, if FM/IMS abnormally terminates.

This field specifies the number of Trace statements that are retained in the buffer. If you specify a value of zero, background debug mode is turned off.
