RLFC - File control requests exceeded.
This is basically resource-Limiting Abend Codes. It might can happen that resource which are being used by your CICS are now used by many programs running cuncurrently in OS. Some more type of resource limiting abend code are:
Its all happened b'coz of more file requests to your file. May be in the past your requirement has been met before the file requests exceed the threshlod limit defined. But its not so now.
1. Find out the threshold limit defined for that file and make sure to stop processing te file once it reaches the threshold limit. Every read, start, end will be considered as a file request. Have a counter to track the number of requests on the file.
