The VM/SP CP trace table and CPTRAP files contain many different types of trace entries reflecting the chronological sequence of events in a VM/SP system. Prior to this invention the user could specify extended selectivity such that only trace entries which contained specific data in a field would be processed when debugging with this data. Disclosed is a programming enhancement that enables a person to specify complex selectivity criteria based upon the conjunction (intersection) of indi vidual extended selectivity criteria for a VM/SP CP trace entry or CPTRAP entry.
