The LEVEL option controls the amount of information to be collected when recording for transaction profiling. There are three levels, each with progressively increasing overhead due to the additional amount of detail collected per transaction.
C\Prof collection levels and approximate resource overheads
|1||Summary collection only.
This collection level measures CICS transaction performance. Response times are reported for each component and resource type.
No application call or trace event detail is collected.
|2||Summary and detail collection with important trace events only. This is the default.
This collection level provides a time line of application calls. Only trace events that provide application call and program flow detail are collected.
|3||Summary and detail collection with all trace events.
This collection level provides a drill down of events that impacted the execution of application calls. All trace events associated with the transaction are collected.
