DescriptionWhat we offer

This course includes an overview of z/OS operating system concepts including but not limited to dispatching, interrupt handling, managing storage resources and cross memory capability.  It also introduces the IPCS dump analysis tool, which is used to extract data from SVC dumps, and performs a review of key assembler concepts used in z/OS problem diagnosis.  Using this foundation, debugging techniques such as interpreting PSW and register content, performing program check analysis, reading the system trace table, and extracting diagnostic details about task, history are explored, each with accompanying labs which allow practical application and reinforcement of these concepts and techniques.
