we run without diagnostics in production for efficiency.
but when there is a problem, then the programmer calls the dba to turn on diagnostics, to see where the abend is.
we would like to automate that online, in real-time, by the programmers request.
we could submit a batch job to issue the ADSOBCOM command
GEN FROM SOU DIA OPS-D144 SYM YES DIAG YES .
but think it is neater (in all ways) to do it in real-time online.
