Analyzing CICS TS SOS Problems in z/VSE

This session begins with a short introduction to the design of CICS storage management. It explains what triggers an SOS condition, how it affects CICS processing and introduces a potential workaround. It identifies possible reasons for SOS occurring and actions to resolve them. It explains what is required to be in place to capture the correct diagnostic data for problem determination, and shows how to use DFHPD410 formatted dump output in conjunction with the appropriate CICS manuals to find the root cause and hence pursue the appropriate resolution.
