Page of GC20-1807-7 As Updated April 1, 1981 by TNL GN25-0829 This publication describes how to debug VM/370 and how to modify, extend, or
implement Control Program (CP) and Conversational Moni tor System (CMS) funct ions. This informa tion is intended
for system programmers, system analysts,
and programming personnel.
This publication consists of four parts
an d three appendixes. "Part 1. Debugging with VM/370" discusses the CP and CMS detugging tools
and procedures to follow when debugging.
This part is logically divided into three
sections. The first section, "Introduct ion
to Debugging", tells you how to identify a
problem and lists guidelines to follow to
find the cause. The second section,
"Debugging with CP", describes the CP debugging commands and utilities, debugging CP in a virtual machine, the internal trace
table and restrictions. A detailed
description of CP dump reading is also
in cluded. The third section, "Debu gging
with CMS", describes the CMS debugging
commands and utilities, load maps, and
restrictions and tells you what fields to
examine when reading a CMS dump. "Part 2. control. program (CP) " contains
an introductory and functional description
of CP as well as guidance in implementing
some CP features. "Part 3. Conversational itor Syste m " contains an introductory and
functional description of CMS including how CMS handles interrupts and SVC calls,
structures its nucleus and its storage, and
manages free storage. Information on
saving the CMS system and implementing the
Batch Facility is also included. "Part 4. Remote Spooling Communications Subsystem (RSCS)" descril:es the functions
and uses of the component of VM/370 that
handles the transmission of files between VM/310 users and remote programmable and
nonprogrammable stations.
"Appendix A: Systemj370 Information"
describes the System/370 extended PSi and
extended control register usage.
"Appendix B: MULTI-LEAVING" provides a
detailed description of MUlTI-LEAVING1, a

technique developed for use
system and used by the RSCS VM/370. communica tion s
by the HASP componen t of "Appendix C: VM Monitor Tape Format and Con tents" describes the format and contents
of data records for classes and codes of MONITOR CALL. The followinq terms in this publica tion
refer to the indicated support devices: "2305" refers to IBM 2305 Fixed Head
Storage, Models 1 and 2. "3262" refers to the IBM 3262 Printer, Models 1 and 11. "3210" refers to a series of displa y devices, namely, the IBM 3275, 3276
(referred to as a Controller Displa y Station), 3277, and 3278 Display
Stations. A specific device type is
used only when a distinction is required
between device types. Information about display terminal usage
also applies to the IBM 3138, 3148, and
3158 Display Consoles when used in
display mode, unless otherwise noted.
Any information pertaining to the IBM 3284 or 3286 printer also pertains to
the IBM 3287, 3288, and 3289 printers,
unless otherwise noted. "3330" refers to the IBM 3330 Disk
Storage, Models 1, 2, or 11; the IBM
