Are you trying to tell us this is a true standalone dump taken to 9 tape volumes? Is it your intent to load this data to DASD for local processing? Or are you ultimately transferring this data to a vendor for analysis? If the latter, you should discuss the matter with the vendor. I used to work for a vendor. We got quite a few dumps through FTP, but I was never involved with something that large. The dumps we got were in the hundreds of megabytes, but they were all SYS1.DUMPxx type dumps.
