Automatic Collection Restart after Abends
If a collection stops due to an abend, Xmanager can now restart the collection automatically when the collection meets certain criteria. This new functionality eliminates the need to monitor the collections manually and helps prevent gaps in collection data. Previously when an abend occurred during collection, the collection had to be restarted manually.
This new functionality is automatically enabled and does not require you to select any options.
