    QUESTION:

    Can I purge an active trace in MainView for IMS? 


    ANSWER:

    Do not purge a trace that is actively logging trace data. The logger task might experience an 0C4 abend as a result of trace data buffers that are freed by this command. It is best to use the Z or Q line command to stop a transaction trace first. After the trace has been stopped it then can be purged.
