Actually i have 12 tape on entry et 12 tape out.
I think it will be work fatser if the dataset is on disk. What do you think about it.
The problem is the size of the dataset : 712 000 000 records with 624 lrecl.
I calculate 50 disk model 9 (our disk are model 9). Actually we don't have enought disk... but we can ask for having more disk if we can win time by doing the sort ondisk. Only if it worth it.
i tryed the sort by getting rid of the sortwork. I want to let the system calculate the sortwork, but it doesn't work. The sysout of the job is in the attached file.
Why it doesn't work.
The value of DYNAUTO is YES.
It may or may not be possible -- so far you have not followed instructions you have been given so you cannot say that DYNALLOC cannot be done on your system.i have DASD but i just want letting DFSORT calculate autmaticly DYNALLOC.
It's not possible ?
i tryed but it doesn't work...
here is the sysout.
Just an other think, i thought the number of sortwork is limited to 32... So 60 sortworks is too much ?
