Hi,
I have got the Abend S878 with the reason code of 10. In that it is mentioned as Not enough Virtual Private area storage available.

Kindly provide your suggestion to overcome this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Code:
10        There is not enough virtual private area storage available to     
          satisfy the request. This is due to one of the following:         
                                                                           
          o   A program is requesting virtual storage, but not             
              subsequently freeing the storage.                             
                                                                           
          o   The region size specified is too small.                       
                                                                           
          o   An installation exit is requesting virtual storage from a     
              V=R region before initialization of the region has           
              completed.     

Please talk with system support.

Application Programmer Response:
Depending on the reason code, do one of the following:
10 Try increasing the region size specified in the region parameter on the JOB or EXEC card in the JCL for the job. However, if the cause of the problem is actually that a program is requesting virtual storage and not freeing it, the abend will recur when the program uses the virtual storage in the larger region.

Dear Gnanas N,
Thank you for your response.

Dear William Thompson,
Thanks for your response. I have already tried with increasing the region size to the maximum. But still it is showing the same error. I hope that this requires the system wide change. So we have tried the following cases,

1. Increasing the REAL size.
2. Modify SQA size.

But still we are getting the same problem. Kindly suggest me with any other option.


Thanks in advance

Siva S: you need to discuss this with your systems support people because you may be running in a job class that at your site is limited as far as region size; your putting the maximum region size on your JOB card could be getting ignored. Only your site support people can help you determine what to do to prevent the S878 abend.

Hi Siva,

Try reducing the bufferno associated with each file. Change BUFNO and BUFND to minimum like 1 or 2 in the jcl.

This will reduce the buffer requiremnt from virtual storage.

Thanks,
Ajay

What did you specify as the maximum?

Did you put it on the JOB or on the STEP. See if there is a REGION both places.

If you examine the ABEND message, there are fullword fields to show how much virtual storage you are requesting. See if the number sounds reasonable.

Hi All,
Thanks a lot for all your responses. The problem has been overcome. We have modified the CSA size, after that it worked fine.

Once again, Thank you Gnanas N, William Thompson, Robert Sample, Ajay Baghel and Bill Dennis.
