Set Trace options panel

The Set Trace options panel allows you to view and modify parameters that control the Trace output produced by Z Data Tools when it is run in debug mode.

Trace destination
Specifies where debug trace Z Data Tools output is to be sent:
Send trace output to the current HFMTRC allocation.
Send trace output to the terminal.
Data set
Send trace output to the temporary data set specified by the Data set name field.
Data set name
The temporary trace data set where Z Data Tools trace output is directed when the Data set trace destination is specified.
Output class
The class of the JES spool queue to be used when the PRINT command is issued when browsing the temporary trace data set.
Trace limit
When run in debug mode, Z Data Tools writes the Trace output to a buffer (as for normal debug mode), but the buffer is only written to the Trace destination, if Z Data Tools abnormally terminates.

This field specifies the number of Trace statements that are retained in the buffer. If you specify a value of zero, background debug mode is turned off.
