Senior Systems Programmer at a logistics company with 10,001+ employees

Helps programmers verify changes, identify any kind of logic mistakes, more quickly

What is our primary use case?

It's just a way to debug COBOL programs. In the CICS world, it's a primary debugging tool.

Pros and Cons

  • "Programmers can verify their changes more quickly, identify any kind of logic mistakes in the program more quickly."
  • "You can have as many users as you like using it. However, sometimes they'll "step on each other" if there are two applications that are testing in one particular region, one could cause some type of a storage overlay and that will hamper another customer trying to do something in the same region."

What other advice do I have?

It's good. It serves its purpose and it's pretty dependable. I gave it a 10 out of 10 because it gets installed and we don't have very many issues with it. If we did have an issue with it, and I can't work with the program to resolve it, I'll get help from the support center. They usually resolve it pretty quickly.

So InterTest is used for debugging process, walking through the code, checking data conditions and code flow. SymDump is used for the fact, after a problem occurs. SymDump catches what point in time the problem occurred, all the other connecting data, and points us to the code to indicate what caused the situation."

    What other advice do I have?

    We use it to go through the code. InterTest is also bundled with SymDump. We see this as a bundle. They are always together for us. So InterTest is used for debugging process, walking through the code, checking data conditions and code flow. SymDump is used for the fact, after a problem occurs. SymDump catches what point in time the problem occurred, all the other connecting data, and points us to the code to indicate what caused the situation. Is the code the problem, or is the data the problem, or is it a configuration problem? So SymDump helps us to identify, determine the root cause of the…
