DFSORT SB37 abend SORTWK

Postby tsdjim » Mon Feb 23, 2009 12:21 pm

I am sorting a large file of about 2 million records using DFSORT . The problem I am having is as follows:


1. For an internal COBOL sort we assign 12 large external SORTWK areas and it still runs out of space.
2. The same sort done externally, takes up one small SORTWK file.

How can we explain this difference. Are there any parameters to specify for the internal sort to fix this problem?

Here is a section of the JCL

Internal DFSORT abends B37
---------------------------------
12 sortwk01 areas of identical size

//SORTWK01 DD DSN=DBP2.TEMP1,UNIT=3390,SPACE=(CYL,(1500,100),RLSE),
//DISP=(,PASS),VOL=SER=PRDB03,STORCLAS=GSPACE
.....
//SORTWK12 DD .....

For the COBOL run, COBOL is passing the records to DFSORT through an internal E15 exit, so DFSORT does NOT know the number of records to be sorted as indicated by this message:

ICE118I 0 UNKNOWN FILE SIZE - FILSZ=EN MAY IMPROVE RESOURCE USAGE AND PERFORMANCE

You can specify:

//DFSPARM DD *
   OPTION FILSZ=En
/*


where n is a good estimate of the number of records to be sorted.

You can see the details of the ICE118I message at:
