Based on our shop's standards, I come up with:
Code:

//         SPACE=(3000,(3953,790),RLSE),AVGREC=K


based on the calculation:

LRECL * MAX # of RECORDS / 56664 = (# of tracks)
3000 * 4,000,000 / 56664 = 211,775 tracks.

BLKSIZE / LRECL * 2 * (# of tracks) = primary space
27,998 / 3000 * 2 * 211775 = 3952851

So, divide 3952851 by 1000, rounding up, and that's the primary. For our shop, the secondary is given as 20% of the primary.
