I'm running a sort with an E35 exit routine and an input file more than 20 GB. It's 878 variable record length, with more than 80 million records. I've tried dynamic allocation of work files and I'm still unable to complete the sort. I get the message "sort capacity exceeded". Please advise
If you're using DFSORT (ICExxxs messages), add the following to the job:
//SORTDIAG DD DUMMY
to get diagnostic messages. Then rerun it and send me the JES and DFSORT messages offline (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll take a look. Please put "DFSORT" somewhere in your Subject line to catch my attention.
