The SOCKET control statement specifies the z/OS UNIX domain socket that will be used by the C\Prof ISPF dialog to communicate with the C\Prof collection server (using SERVER collection mode).
Add the SOCKET control statement as above, replacing the zFS_path_name with a path name in the z/OS UNIX file system (zFS). The maximum length of the path name is 108 characters. For example, to assign zFS path /u/cicsprod/cprof.sock, specify SOCKET=/u/cicsprod/cprof.sock in your configuration file.
Access to the C\Prof collection server is secured by file access to the specified zFS path name. Write access is required to connect to the socket.
You can adjust the file permissions for the socket using the PERMISSIONS control statement. For more information, see PERMISSIONS.
