Does anyone have any simple step-by-step instructions for doing MIMS tracing?
I'm trying to put together a simple document that even a newbie system administrator can follow. I don't want to reinvent the wheel if someone has already done it.
The Mincom instructions aren't very helpful, as they seem aimed more at explaining the theory of tracing rather than a simple "HOW-TO" document.
I also have an intermittent problem using DEBUG servers. Sometimes they work great, other times I get a "Communication Error".
Here's the documentation I've started:
There are four types of traces.
3. Batch &
4. Front end.
In addition Mincom may request screen dumps or a Screen Cam. We don’t have screen cam, we use SnagIt instead.
For On-data, On-line and Batch traces you first need to compile the program with trace.
mscomp -t3 msx999
You may also need to re-compile some subroutines with trace.
mscomp -t3 mss999
You may need to bounce the application servers
tp_op -Kw 99999
Empty out any existing trace files:
>user.trc # Redirect nothing to user.trc
Enter client username for tracing (mims43d)...:user1 (Only required for ONDATA trace, where user1 is the user's MIMS logon-id)
Client Username is user1...
Enter trace file to be generated (user1.trc).:
Enter log file to be generated (user1.log).:
Enter server type to be traced:
Valid server types are online, batch, ondata (online).:ondata
ondata server started. To attach to this server select the Debug box on the client login window.
(/bin/ksh) mims43d@seven MIMS43D
