"Find" Limit increase.

Postby rajaranganathan » Fri Nov 14, 2014 4:51 pm

Hi,


When ever I find a keyword in a flat file or in sysout, it just searches for the first 5000 records and askes us to keep pressing "Enter" key.

Can any one please tell how to change the find limit? or make it to infinitive.


Thanks

I hope not. Why do you think there is a limit? Why should it not apply to you? You want to look at a 20,000,000-line output, then do a find which you typo, then what whilst it sucks up CPU and IO to do your thoughtless task?

Hi Billy,


Am working on an analysis task where i got to find a keyword displayed on spool and the keyword will be printed many times with lakhs of records in between each print.
So at times, i need to find the Keyword which is printed in the middle (see below example).


So when i want to find a keyword printed in middle , i need to keep on press 'Enter' Button to get to the middle keyword until i reach the keyword.


kindly let me know if you need more clarification.

Send your flipping output, all crakhs of it, to a file, and use SRCHFOR in batch!

AND USE INTERNATIONALLY ACCEPTED UNITS. ALMOST NOBODY OUTSIDE OF INDIA HAS ANY CLUE WHAT A "LAKH" is!

You might be thinking of the FINDLIM command in SDSF. You may or may not be able to change this depending on your shop standards.

Your TSO session is at a high priority compared to batch jobs. You are tying up your terminal and impacting other users. Look at Prino's suggestion. Also look at using SORT to extract what you want to a small dataset. Spool datasets were never intended for "searching" and Find is not optimised for large amounts of data.
