The settings are site specific, so it would be easiest to speak to your systems programmer to find the limits in force for your site.

Some sites do permit overrides to the settings, and some not. Again, purely site specific.

You can modify OUTLIM value by mentioning in DD statement.
Like below
Code:

//OUTDD  DD  SYSOUT=*,OUTLIM=5000

Limit will be set to 5000 logical records.

Thanks for the info expat and Sambhaji......


@Sambhaji

I am more specifically looking at the limit of the sysout for each class. OUTLIM will exit when the limit is reached and once the 5000 records hits sysout i will get S722 again (untested) icon_rolleyes.gif





OUTLIM Parameter

z/OS V1R9.0 MVS JCL Reference
SA22-7597-11




Parameter Type

Keyword, optional

Purpose

Use the OUTLIM parameter to limit the number of logical records in the sysout data set defined by this DD statement. When the limit is reached, the system exits to the SYSOUT limit exit routine. If the installation supplies an installation-written routine, the routine can determine whether to terminate the job or increase the limit. If the installation does not supply a routine, the system terminates the job.

These limits are determined during JES initialization through the JES initialization deck and depend entirely upon whatever values were put in by the systems programmer as expat said. Unless and until you contact your site support group for assistance, you're not going to find out since those values are determined solely by your site. We have no idea how your site is set up so we cannot provide any real answer to you.
