What do the parameters PARM='CORE=MAX' and PARM='DYNALLOC' in a sort job mean?

CORE=MAX is an alias for SIZE=MAX which tells DFSORT to determine how much storage to use based on the TMAXLIM and DSA values in effect.

DYNALLOC tells DFSORT to use dynamic allocation of work data sets.

You can find explanations of all of DFSORT's EXEC parameters in Chapter 2 of "z/OS DFSORT Application Programming Guide" which you can access from:
