Many diagnostic tools are shipped in z/OS such as execs for use in dump diagnosis with z/OS IPCS. These execs are provided on an as-is basis (not warranted) and no support is provided. They may be accessed, without additional installation steps, from the IPCS main panel's Analysis option (option 2, which displays panel BLSPSCRN), then sub-option 6i (this option is not displayed by panel BLSPSCRN but is available). They may also be invoked directly, such as by "IPCS execname <input>".
Some of these execs may require the availability of compiled-REXX facilities and will not function properly without those facilities. Typically, the execs use only the compiled REXX facilities that are available without the installation of a separate priced feature.
When invoked from IPCS option 2 sub-option 6i, you can request help by selecting an exec via the "?" character. Alternately, you can use "IPCS execname ?" or "IPCS execname HELP". The help information describes such things as the allowable input.
No additional documentation is intended to be provided or made available.
Below is the list of execs that are provided in this manner:
|ALET2DSP||IAXAR2D||DataSpace Name associated with input AR/ALET|
|CMD2FILE||BLSXC2FI||Writes output from an input IPCS cmd to output dataset|
|CPUINFO||IEAVCPUI||displays high level CPU information|

|SIOTPLUS||IEFSIOTP||Maps some fields in SIOT, EDL, DDWA, VOLUNIT, etc.|
|SLIPDATA||IEAVSLIP||Display SLIP control block data|
|SLOTCNT||ILRSLOTC||Auxiliary slot usage information|

|WEBINFO||IEAVWEBI||Overview of work (WEBs)|
Hint: If you have these execs in a variable record length data set and if you used some process other than SMP/E (such as ISPF copy) to move them there from the fixed record length distribution library ABLSCLI0, the ones that are compiled REXX might not work. For the compiled REXX execs, it is necessary not to lose trailing blanks when moving to another data set. IEAVWEBI is an example of an exec that is compiled REXX.
