Hello Subhalekha and welcome to the forums,

SYNCGENR is the Syncsort "replacement" for IEBGENER. It has superior performance compared to IEBGENER. Many sites automatically invoke their sort product instead if IEBGENER when a file copy is specified.

Hello,

You might ask your system programmers.

As far as i know, SYNCGENR is not a separate product. On your system it may simply be an alias for SYNCSORT. As i mentioned before, it is quite common for a system to intercept IEBGENER executions and execute part of the sort product instead.

For complete information, you could contact Syncsort directly.

SyncSort's BetterGener utility program offers improved performance over IEBGENER in straight copy tasks and is transparent to users when it is installed with SyncSort for z/OS. Implementing BetterGener will provide significant savings in system resources such as elapsed time, CPU time, and channel utilization through improved I/O handling. Once BetterGener is activated, eligible IEBGENER job streams are automatically processed by SyncSort. There is no need to replace working IEBGENER job streams with explicit requests for SyncSort’s more efficient copying. BetterGener’s SYNCGENR module will intercept calls to IEBGENER and determine whether the particular copy application should be processed by SyncSort. In situations supported by SyncSort, SYNCGENR will link to the sort, generating the environment of a program-initiated sort execution. In situations not supported by SyncSort, SYNCGENR will transfer control to IEBGENER.

Hope this provides a little better understanding.
