Webinar Topic: We've Got a Problem - An Introduction to z/OS® Dumps and Debugging Tools
In our November, 2021 webinar, DTS CTO Steve Pryor discussed the many debugging tools available from IBM and other ISVs. Steve also took a look at the content and format of various dumps that can help us to solve problems and prevent errors from recurring.
In large enterprises, the most complex and mission-critical business applications are entrusted to z/OS because of its unrivaled security and reliability. In any complex environment, however, unexpected errors and unplanned failures are bound to occur. When they do, there is an immediate need to understand the problem, find the root cause, and prevent future errors.
Fortunately, z/OS programmers have access to a large set of debugging tools, including dumps, traces, log records, and more. The ability to use these tools, particularly system dumps, is an important skill for system and application programmers alike.
