Z/OS DFSORT V1R5 - sort capacity exceeded error

Postby hazel.alzaga » Fri Nov 19, 2010 10:37 am

Hi,

We received a sort capacity exceeded error on one our of batch job. Input file is compressed and is only 30trks in size. Our operator had tried increasing the region size from 8m to 256M but still received the same error. We,on the other hand,had tried the 'option dynalloc and option dynalloc=(sysda,n)' but still encountered the same error. But when we define the SORTWK01 DD statement(regardless if its trk(1,1) or trk(10,10) or cyl(100,50) ,we successfully had rc=0. Would like to know the reason why such incident happened. please refer to below attachements for details.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

It is best not to post attachments. Not everyone is permitted to download them. . .

You need to look at the actual error message and read about that message in the documentation.

It will help if you post the jcl and control statements for one of the problem runs and one that works correctly.

Show the difference in the diagnostic info generated by these.

To post code, jcl, etc, use copy/paste and the "Code" tag. Use Preview to see your post as it will appear to the forum (rahter than how it appears n the Reply Editor). Coded info will look like this:
a code tag
example
Using the code tag will preserve alignment.

I do not understand what type of compression is used for the data :?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

The SORT control statement has an option to give sort an estimate of the number of records in the sort input. Use it! If you give sort a reasonably accurate estimate it can allocate enough sort work space to run the sort without getting sort capacity exceeded.

But we're still wondering why defining the sortwk01 resolves the sort capacity exceeded. And we're still looking for other possible solution w/o the need to define sortwork dd stmts.

Re: Z/OS DFSORT V1R5 - sort capacity exceeded error

Postby Frank Yaeger » Sat Nov 20, 2010 2:26 am

Hazel,

The filesize DFSORT determined for the VSAM input data set was less than the actual filesize. I suspect based on the filesize, DFSORT didn't think it needed any work space, so it didn't dynamicallty allocate any (either that or your installation is not allowing dynamically allocated work data sets). It may be that the VSAM catalog has incorrect information for the filesize.

Adding one SORTWKnn DD overrode dynamic allocation of work data sets, so one work data set was available.

You could try adding FILSZ=Un where n is a good estimate of the number of records in the input file. Or you could keep the SORTWKnn DD. Or you could try to figure out why the catalog information for the VSAM input data set is incorrect.

If you want somebody to analyze this further, you'll need to open a problem (PMR) with IBM service. The helpboard is not the appropriate place for that kind of analysis.

Thanks Frank! We'll keep the sortwknn for now.
