Application and trace events

To investigate an individual transaction further, you can drill-down to view the events in the life of the transaction. C\Prof Web UI shows you these events initially as high-level "application events" which summarize and simplify sequences of raw trace events recorded from the CICS internal trace.

Browsing events

To view application events, complete the following steps:

  1. Find the transaction you are interested in using the transaction list.
  2. Click the expand button (Expand) to reveal additional actions.
  3. Click the zoom button (Navigate) to display major application events.
