Hi,

I want to expand the length of the KSDS file. Currently the logical length of the file is 500. I am unable to make the decision that what is the size i can expand without affecting the processing and efficiency.

The inofrmation about the file is mentioned below.

Data - Control Area Information:
Physical record size: 4096
Records per track: 12
Tracks per CA: 2
Retrieved records: 191770865
Max record number 0
Number CA splits: 3


Control Interval Information:
Size-data: 4096 Index: 7680
Number CIs/CA: 192
Number free CIs/CA: 19
Percent free CIs/CA: 10
Percent free bytes/CI: 20
Number CI splits: 1348

Please let me know if any information required. Please let me know the way to find out the perfect record length (for expansion) without affecting program processing/efficiency.

Expand the record to include the data you need to include. Sometimes a little filler can be handy in the future, that's your call. Just expand and don't worry about "program processing/efficiency".

Since you are going to backup, delete, define and restore to expand the record, the delete/define would be a good time to look into the data and index CA/CI sizes and freespace.
