Hi All,

I have a JCL as shown below.

//EFBTH JOB (10403),'RATAR JOB',MSGLEVEL=(1,1),MSGCLASS=H,
// REGION=0M,CLASS=P,NOTIFY=&SYSUID,
//S1 EXEC PGM=PROG1,REGION=20K
//DD1 DD DSNAME=A.B.C,DISP=OLD
//S2 EXEC PGM=PROG2,
//DD2 DD DSNAME=MYDS2,DISP=OLD

Query 1 : Please advise, in case the REGION=0M set in the job card is over ridden by the REGION=20K in the step1(S1) and the same REGION=20K is used in all subsequent steps?

Query 2 : Is there any chance that the Job class(CLASS=P) has a limitation set on the memory allocation?

Thanks in advance

Regards
Siva

Hi,

query1 - A REGION= value on the JOB statement will override any REGION= specified on an EXEC statement in the job

A value of 0K or 0M will allow the program to request the largest available region size, however this specification should be used with caution. Check the OS/390 Initialization and Tuning Guide

classes and their properties are installation dependent, so we have noo way of knowing about them,

the same info could have been easily found in the jcl manuals
( guide and reference ) link at the top of the page


and since You claimed urgency, faster than a forum reply
