Hi, I need some information on extended format VSAM dataset and how to calculate the space requirement so as to avoid frequent CA/CI splits.
I have a 95 char KSDS with first 12 char's as KEY.
There are approximately 81 Million records that need to be loaded into this VSAM from a flat file. This of course will keep growing once implemented.
a. How to calculate the approximate space of the cluster to be defined keeping in mind the current and future requirements? Is this different than the standard VSAM?
I did refer the IBM manuals but its not really very helpful:http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocente ... c18022.htm
