 ENUS203-237.PDF (48KB)


At a glance

IBM Debug Tool for z/OS V4.1 helps examine, monitor, and control the execution of application programs by enabling you to:

  • Interactively debug an application as it runs
  • Perform seamless debugging of mixed-language applications
  • Make adjustments to your application while debugging
  • Display, monitor, and alter program variables

Debug Tool also supports many programming languages and numerous execution environments.

Your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or the Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: LE001).

Overview

IBM Debug Tool for z/OS® V4.1 is IBM's interactive source-level debugging tool for compiled applications. It is a program testing and analysis aid that helps you examine, monitor, and control the execution of application programs written in C, C++, COBOL, or PL/I on a z/OS or OS/390® system. By using the disassembly view, Debug Tool also provides support for programs compiled with the NOTEST compiler option, or applications that include other languages.

Debug Tool supports debugging of application programs that run in the following environments:

  • CICS®
  • IMS™
  • DB2®
  • WebSphere®
  • TSO
  • JES/batch
  • UNIX® System Services

V4.1 provides the following functional and usability improvements which make Debug Tool an even more productive tool to use:

  • You can create a DDNAME to specify the location of the listing or source file.
  • You can switch between hexadecimal and decimal display.
  • The LIST cursor command has been enhanced.
  • The FIND command no longer requires the use of quotes.

Key prerequisites

One of the following:

  • z/OS V1.1 (5694-A01), or later
  • OS/390 V2.10 (5647-A01), or later

Depending on the function used, certain levels of other programs may be required. Refer to the Software requirements section for details.

Planned availability date

Description

Create DDNAME to specify location of listing or source file: Previously, you had to use Debug Tool commands to specify the location of the listing, source, and sidefile. Now, Debug Tool provides support that enables you to specify a DDNAME to allocate the datasets containing the files needed for the debug session.

Switch between hexadecimal and decimal display

The following enhancements have been added:

  • A command, which can be assigned to a PF key, has been added that enables you to switch the display of data between decimal and hexadecimal.
  • Parameters have been added to the MONITOR command to turn hexadecimal representation on or off for data being displayed in the Monitor window.
  • Default behavior has been changed so data that can not be displayed in the variable's defined data type is displayed in hexadecimal.

Enhanced the LIST cursor command: The RETRIEVE command has been enhanced so that when a LIST CURSOR command is performed on a variable, the retrieval action includes retrieval of the variable and the LIST keyword.

FIND command no longer requires use of quotes: The Debug Tool's FIND command has been changed so that it no longer requires quotes around the search string. This makes the Debug Tool FIND command behave like the ISPF FIND command.

Enhanced debugging of COBOL programs: Support has been added to debug methods in a COBOL CLASS compiled with the Enterprise COBOL for z/OS compiler.

The following enhancements have been made to support debugging of COBOL programs using Unicode and compiled with the Enterprise COBOL for z/OS compiler:

  • When national data is displayed using the Debug Tool LIST command or as part of a formatted dump, it is automatically converted to EBCDIC representation using the code page specified in the CODEPAGE compiler option. The output of a conversion may be a string containing mixed SBCS and DBCS characters, depending on the code page used.
  • The Debug Tool MOVE command now supports assigning values to national data items from an alphanumeric literal or an alphanumeric data item.
  • Debug Tool conditional commands such as IF and EVALUATE may specify national data items and compare them to an alphanumeric literal or an alphanumeric data item.

Debug Tool Utilities and Advanced Functions V4.1: Debug Tool Utilities and Advanced Functions V4.1 is a separate, optional product that builds on the function in Debug Tool V4.1, providing even more debugging capability for z/OS and OS/390 applications. For more information on Debug Tool Utilities and Advanced Functions V4.1 refer to Software Announcement 203-236 , dated September 16, 2003.

Customization options: Select the appropriate feature numbers to customize your order to specify the delivery options desired. These features can be specified on the initial or MES orders.

Example: If publications are not desired for the initial order, specify feature number 3470 to ship media only. For future updates, specify feature number 3480 to ship media updates only. If, in the future, publication updates are required, order an MES to remove feature number 3480; then, the publications will ship with the next release of the program.

Sub-capacity charges for VWLC products

Sub-capacity charges for VWLC products are based on product LPAR utilization capacity. Product LPAR utilization capacity for a VWLC product is the highest number of MSUs utilized by the combined LPARs in which a VWLC product runs concurrently during a reporting period. The number of MSUs is based on the highest observed rolling four-hour average utilization used by the combination of the relevant LPARs during the reporting period. Refer to Software Announcement 200-354 , dated October 3, 2000, Software Announcement 201-258 , dated September 11, 2001, and Software Announcement 202-105 , dated April 30, 2002, for additional details on IBM Workload License Charges.

Sub-capacity charges terms and conditions

zSeries software charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible VWLC products apply when z/OS is running in z/Architecture™ (64 bit) mode on an IBM eServer zSeries 900, no other MVS-based operating system is licensed to that server and the required information is provided by the customer in accordance with the applicable terms.

Sub-capacity charges for a VWLC product is based on the utilization of the LPARs where/when the product executes. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for VWLC products, the customer is required to:

  • Sign and abide by the terms of the Attachment for zSeries Workload License Charges — Pre-ILM (Z125-6516).
  • Obtain the latest version of the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool.
  • Install any VWLC product and IBM eServer zSeries 900 Licensed Internal Code (LIC) service required for sub-capacity charging. Required service will be listed on the WLC Web site:
  • Collect SMF data as required by the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool. Retain the collected SMF data for a period of not less than six months.
  • Use the IBM provided Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool to process the collected SMF data. The Sub-Capacity Report produced by the tool is used to determine required license capacity for the VWLC products. Required license capacity is determined based on the largest MSU value of a VWLC product running concurrently in all LPARs during the reporting period. IBM reserves the right to request the system data that supports these product-defined capacity values for a period of up to six months after the data was collected.
  • Provide an initial Sub-Capacity Report to begin to receive the benefits of less than full machine capacity charges. Sub-capacity charging will follow submission of a Sub-Capacity Report. There will be no retroactive application of sub-capacity charges.
  • Submit Sub-Capacity Reports monthly.
  • Submit Sub-Capacity Reports for all VWLC products with complete data for the entire reporting period to the e-mail address and by the date, specified on the zSeries Software Pricing Web site:

    and in the current Workload License Charge Exhibit (Z125-6324). Sub-Capacity Reports that reflect a changed product-defined capacity will be considered to be orders placed by the customer without further action on the customer's part and IBM is authorized to make any resulting billing increase or decrease. To place an order for a new license or to discontinue licenses, move licenses between machines, report a hardware model upgrade, or enable or disable product features, the customer must contact IBM or their IBM Business Partner.

  • Configure machine to send weekly Transmit System Availability Data (TSAD) to IBM via the IBM eServer zSeries 900 Remote Support Facility (RSF). If the machine cannot connect via the RSF, provide this TSAD via an alternate means documented in the z/OS publication Planning for Workload License Charges at:
