What about PARAMETER PATRACENMI=YES?

    When starting SOLVESSI on a z/OS system you might see message

    NFSI02 SPECIFY INITIALIZATION PARAMETER PATRACENMI=YES TO ENABLE THE USE OF THE IBM REAL-TIME TCP/IP TRACE NMI

     

    This message appears only when running Netmaster on z/OS 2.1 or greater. It does not indicate an error. It simply informs you that you may use the IBM real-time application-controlled TCP/IP trace network management interface (Trace NMI) to collect packets for IBM stacks.

    More information on this trace can be found here:

    The  EXPLOIT TCP/IP TRACE NMI (EZBRCIFR) was provided by APAR  RO80964.                                                      

     

    Product: NMS        Release: 7.6         Solution #: 250       Type:  

    Title: EXPLOIT TCP/IP TRACE NMI (EZBRCIFR)                          

     

    ******************

    ENHANCEMENT DESCRIPTION:                                              

    With z/OS V2R1, IBM introduced the real-time application-controlled   

    TCP/IP trace NMI (EZBRCIFR). It is a callable network management      

    interface (NMI) that provides real-time TCP/IP stack data to network  

    management applications based on filters that are set by an application

    trace instance.                                                       

                                                                          

    The NetMaster Packet Analyzer is updated to optionally exploit the NMI

    when executing on a z/OS system at the V2R1 release level or later.

    Make sure if you are going to use this facility that fix RO88666 is also applied on 12.1 systems to address increased mips usage when using the new TCP/IP trace NMI (EZBRCIFR).
