Reply with quote

Hi,

Need a help.. we do a task repeatedly every month... want to find some easy way to do this(boring/tough) task..

Every month we need to manually browse many 10000s of datasets, find which are all have exceeded the space, then recreate those datasets by increasing the size.

i am thinking of some way to sort these datasets by the amount of free space available, which will make my task easy.

i tried all combination of sorting in the ISPF panel(after listing the dataset in 3.4 option).. but still not able to achieve my need..

Can any one please help me with this..

please let me know if my requirement is not clear...

Take a look at the ISMF functiond available.

What do you mean by "exceeded the space"
Recreating them with increased space is like being a hampster in a wheel, it goes on forever and ever and never stops.

Resolve the problem, not the symptoms.

Suggest you speak to storage management who may
a) Have tools to monitor this already
b) May have set up SMS/HSM to do something about this automatically

Also talk to the JCLM's to change the JCL to create the datasets with the correct attributes in the first place.

I meant the dataset which is 100% full(in space).

If the any job access to write any data into such dataset, the job will fail for B37 abend for that dataset.

Hope this is clear. icon_sad.gif

Thank you..

This is not strictly true, it depends on the secondary space allocation and the number of extents already used and the number of volumes the dataset can span across.

A dataset that shows 100% used can still allocate additional space.
