Generating a Report

To generate an Abend Diagnostic Report, you must set the ACU_DUMP configuration variable to 1 (on, true, yes). The default value for the configuration variable is 0 (off, false, no). This variable also takes name format specifiers that you can use to add additional identifier information to the report name.

In order to add detailed information to the report, programs must be compiled with line number (-Gl) and symbol table (-Gs) option. The -Ga compiler option may also be used, but since this includes full source information in the compiled object, it results in a much larger object file on disk.
