Hi, We are using Sort in Cobol program, We were using following Sort workspace. Some times we were getting space abends, We were increasing it to 1000 cyl

Code:

SORTWK1  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(500,500),RLSE)
SORTWK2  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(500,500),RLSE)
SORTWK3  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(500,500),RLSE)
SORTWK4  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(500,500),RLSE)
SORTWK5  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(500,500),RLSE)
SORTWK6  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(500,500),RLSE)


I tried using following code, job is running fine, But i need to know what is exact number we need to give in dynalloc, I have given 16 here, But need to understand the significance and what else i need to look if i use dynalloc.

Code:

//DFSPARM DD *                                               
   OPTION DYNALLOC=(,16)                                     
/*

Magesh

AFAIK, it is usually recommend not specifying SORTWKdd DD statements, they way SORT can use dynamically allocated work data sets.

Siad that, if you specify SORTWKdd DD statements, SORT will use them and NOT use dynamically allocated work data sets unless your site has set DYNAUTO=IGNWKDD as the installation default. With DYNAUTO=IGNWKDD, SORT deallocates the SORTWKdd DD data sets and use dynamically allocated work data sets.

Sri Kolusu or Mr. Woodger may be to advise you better. However, the second sub-parameter of DYNALLOC is the number of dynamically-allocated work data sets (the first is the device type, which you'll generally not want to use). The total amount of space is determined by:
  1. The FILSZ and LRECL (for VB input, an average record length of AVGRLEN or, if that is not specified, half the LRECL is assumed); failing that
  2. The DYNSPC parameter (specified in megabytes) in the control deck; failing that
  3. The default that your sysprogs established at installation time

I'm not exactly sure what the question is. There is material in the manuals on work dataset allocations.

Did you take out the SORTWKn datasets from the JCL?

Seeing the sysout from a failure and from a success would help if you have something specific for the Cobol programs. Also whether you are using compiler option FASTSRT, and exactly what you have coded related to the SORT/MERGE statements in your Cobol programs.

magesh23586,

There isn't enough information to suggest anything. Since It is program invoked sort, I am guessing that you aren't passing the FILESIZE. Dynamic allocation is the way to go.

Please Run the following job which will list your shop installation defaults
Code:

//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD SYSOUT=*     
//DFSMSG    DD SYSOUT=*     
//OUT       DD SYSOUT=*     
//TOOLIN    DD *           
  DEFAULTS LIST(OUT)       
//*


The fields of interest are DSA ,DYNALOC, DYNAUTO, DYNSPC, MAXLIM, MINLIM, MOSIZE

My Question is
1. May i use Dynalloc in this senario rather than using sortworspace, Will it Fix my problem permenantly.

2. If I can use Dynalloc, i need to know what is the exact number we need to give in dynalloc(,16) or (,32) or ? and what else parameter i should pass to increase the performance.

Temporarily we are fixing it by increasing the workspace from CYL(500,500) to CYL(500,800).

The Result of the successful run after changing to 800 Cyls follows.

why not involve Your support ??
Code:
DYNALOC        (SYSDA,4)                (SYSDA,4)                (SYSDA,4)   


the defaults used seem pretty underestimated IMO.

You need to read what Kolusu wrote.

You need to read Appendix A, Using Work Space, and Chapter 6, Invoking DFSORT from a Program, of the DFSORT Application Programming Guide.

You need to look at the Cobol manuals for your version, paying attention to "special registers" which start with the word SORT, the SORT and MERGE verbs, and the FASTSRT compiler option.

Don't arrange to change any of those defaults you showed unless you fully understand their impacts.

rereading the whole topic...
things are complicated by some add on product ...
see the SVM..... messages

usually the <space managers> are told to ignore sortwk

There are so many problems with your job.

1. As enrico pointed out, your shop space manager is restricting the allocation of your sortworks from 500 to 211 of the primary and your secondary is not even considered.

2.
Code:
ICE118I 0 UNKNOWN FILE SIZE - FILSZ=EN MAY IMPROVE RESOURCE USAGE AND PERFORMAN


As suspected you are not passing filesize and your shop restricts the sort works, how do you expect the job to complete? DFSORT cannot dynamically allocate the sortworks as it does NOT know what the file size is. And your JCL sort works aren't enough.

3. Your successful run shows that you have about 20 million records with a size of 4.6 gigs of data to be sorted. You would need about 7623 cylinders to complete the sort. Given how your shop restricts the primary allocation I suggest you code 8 work datasets each with 900 cylinders as primary

Code:

//SORTWK1  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(900,100),RLSE)
...
//SORTWK8  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(900,100),RLSE)


4. Alternatively you can use pass the estimated filesize like 24 million records considering a 20% increase of your current filesize and Dynalloc of 16 and pass it via DFSPARM like shown below

Code:

//DFSPARM  DD *                             
  OPTION DYNALLOC=(,16),FILSZ=E24000000
//*

Thankyou very Much to all for your kind suggessions and advice. This is really useful information.

I have some clarifications.

1. I could see in the Foot print with following error message.
Code:

SORT SORT-WORK-FILE     ASCENDING KEY SORT-KEY

5409  IGYPG3133-I   THE "USING" PHRASE WAS NOT SPECIFIED FOR THE "SORT" STATEMENT.  THE           "INPUT PROCEDURE" WAS INELIGIB "FASTSRT" COMPILER OPTION.               
5409  IGYPG3132-I   THE "GIVING" PHRASE WAS NOT SPECIFIED FOR THE "SORT" STATEMENT.  THE "OUTPUT PROCEDURE" WAS INELIG "FASTSRT" COMPILER OPTION.                                     

INPUT PROCEDURE M100-INPUT   
OUTPUT PROCEDURE M300-OUTPUT.



So I belive, It is not using Fastsrt compiler option, And this procedure is bit complex to covert it to fastsrt.
My understanding is still, I can use Dynalloc.. Please advice.

2. enrico has mentioned shop space manager is restricting the allocation of your sortworks,
what should i do to prevent that error.

Also he has mentioned Default is under estimated IMO, what should be the correct value.
Code:

DYNALOC        (SYSDA,4)                (SYSDA,4)                (SYSDA,4)


3.
Instead of this sort work space i feel Dynamic allocation is better.
May I request system programmer to change DYNAUTO=IGNWKDD in the installation, If at all i ask do that, what is the impact analysis i should do ?

Please advice.

Regards,
Magesh

  1. Yes, you can still use dynamic workspace allocation without FASTSRT.
  2. Talk to your site support people for how to restrict any "space management".
  3. Put the suggestion to your boss. If you get assigned the task, I'd be surprised, as it comes down to "Production JCL" which you're probably not responsible for. See my comment in my previous post as well.

magesh23586,

You seem to completely ignore the most obvious problem. (ICE118I ) even though I pointed it out twice to you. Good Luck.

Hi SKolusu,

Sorry that my communication looks ignoring your point. I am currently using the same code as advised by you.I was actually testing your solution in test environment, Since there were number of input files involved, testing takes some time, thought of updating you after the test result.

Thankyou very much for kind advice.

Regards,
Magesh

Thanks for letting us know.

Any chance of getting onto a supported release of DFSORT?

Sorry for the delayed response, after several escalations, we finally got the dfsort upgraded.

Code:

ICE200I 0 IDENTIFIER FROM CALLING PROGRAM IS 0001                           
ICE143I 0 BLOCKSET     SORT  TECHNIQUE SELECTED                             
ICE250I 0 VISIT http://www.ibm.com/storage/dfsort FOR DFSORT PAPERS, EXAMPLES
ICE000I 0 - CONTROL STATEMENTS FOR 5694-A01, Z/OS DFSORT V1R10 - 20:38 ON WED


Anyway thanks to kolusu and Bill for informing this.

Regards,
Magesh

Magesh,

Do you realize that DFSORT V1R10 is also out of service as of September 30th 2011?
