FFDC is the process of generating and dumping debug information on unexpected events.
Earlier, FFDC information is generated on following unexpected events:
From VCS 6.2 version, the capturing of the FFDC information on unexpected events has been extended to resource level and to cover VCS events. This means, if a resource faces an unexpected behavior then FFDC information will be generated.
The current version enables the agent to log detailed debug logging during unexpected events with respect to resource, such as,
Monitor entry point of a resource reported OFFLINE/IO when it was in ONLINE state.
Monitor entry point of a resource reported UNKNOWN.
If any entry point times-out.
If any entry point reports failure.
Now whenever an unexpected event occurs FFDC information will be automatically generated. And this information will be logged in their respective agent log file.
