I have a sort job which runs for more than 10 hours everymonth. Found the input of the sort job has been written to tape and used MAXSORT to reduce the run time. But still it runs for more than 10 hours. I heard about PARASORT which can be used for a tape sort input having data in mutiple volumes. Can someone provide me an example JCL with parasort utility being used.
I guess we cannot bring it to DASD because of the huge data content. The sortin file holds more than 300 million record and if we try to being it to DASD, i think that will lead to DASD violation defined here.
MAXSORT has been used in that particular job. But it still runs for longer time. I thought PARASORT might be the best possible option available. Please help me out tuning this job. Thank you very much.

I have just been informed by one of my colleagues that you have already opened a ticket with SyncSort Support for this issue. I do not feel that pursuing this in the forums is beneficial at this time. I suggest that you continue to work with your SyncSort Support Representative on this matter. Thank you.
You are absolutely correct. I had a chance to communicate with one of your colleague and i i am working with my team to provide the informations he soughted from me. Thanks for your help on this issue.
Also i thank everybody who replied for my queries. I will post the solution for the parasort issue once i solve it with the help of SYNCSORT guys.
