You're to split out one step of a job and look at it's spool space only? A very, very, very strange requirement! Estimate the number of lines you're spooling in the step, multiply by the appropriate line size, and that tells you how many bytes are needed. That can be converted to tracks and cylinders using standard algorithms.

Bottom line: it sounds like you're getting ready to spool off an extremely large file. If so, contact your site's systems support personnel to determine whether or not there is spool space for your needs. Systems programmers can often add spool packs dynamically if given warning; if you just throw it out there and cause JES to stop processing because you used all the spool space, you deserve whatever happens to you.
