I know the formulae for BUFNI calculation for RANDOM pass under normal NON Extended VSAM but this same formuale sometimes gives big numbers (or negative) for extended VSAM files can someone give me some clues please.

BUFNI = Total Index Records – (HURBA / (cisize * CIs per CA) ) + 1

I use this formulae for both but sometimes I get funny values for EXTVSM files any advice please?

We do not use SMB only AMP and LSR.

Whether the cluster is extended functionality or not should not affect the results from your calculation.

Perhaps if you provided an example we could provide additional feedback -- like maybe your calculation and the LISTCAT output your calculation is based on?
