A program controls the LRECL of records written to SYSOUT. There is probably some overhead for control info for JES for each job's spool data.

A larger record uses more spool space.

What do you want to know about the size of jobs in the spool for ?

The maximum size of a job in the spool is equal to the unused available space defined to the JES2 spool dataset. Therefor this is a site specific question which you should address to your systems programmers.

SYSPRINT
SYSOUT

the only standard datasets ( always present for JOB/STC/TSU ) are
JESMSGLG, JESJCL, JESYSMSG

all the other names are optional, user defined

the maximum size/number_of_records for a spooled dataset ( print/punch )
is determined by the spool capacity and the rules imposed by jes[2-3] customization

size is an ambiguous term.

do you mean lrecl or do you mean total volume as many many records?

The max size of a SYSOUT record is set by the DCB or File Description in the program that OPENed it.

If you mean a COBOL DISPLAY statement, the book says the max. for an output device (printer) is 255.

this kind of thread is really embarrassing,
it is very difficult to answer when the question asked uses generic terms,
clear maybe to the topic starter but useless to the people willing to help

- the TS put in his mainframe skills everything ??
- since we give serious answer we expect also a serious attitude

Another guess...

It looks like the poster used as an example, a column from SDSF, which shows the ddnames of a particular job. Use a '?' to select a job from the held output display.

On the right side of the SDSF held output display is a "rec-cnt" column with the number of records in that dd name. Perhaps that is what the poster wanted to know.

i am also thinking that The maximum size of a job in the spool is equal to the unused available space defined to the JES2 spool dataset.

there is no logic of dcb or lrecl with size of sysout......
