Hi All,

I am trying to accumulate data in a tape file, For this i am using FILEMANAGER, Till yesterday the job was running fine. Today the job was abended with S0C9, As per the last run details the record count in the accumulated file is 2121301983.

S0C9 generally comes when divide by zero occurs, But in this scenario it is little bit confusing, Can any one throw some light on this.

Thanks in advance!!

since the program You are using was not developed in house,
You have nothing to help You debug the problem,
why not open a ticket with compuware ???

File-Aid is compuware.

FILEMANAGER is IBM.

2 billion records is a doubleword starting with 7E.
not a tape man myself,
but is there a limit
to the number of records
that can be written to a tape file?

it is outdated, but the TS's system may also be old.
Do a find on S0C9 on this page
indicates S0C9 can also be associated with tape.

Definitely one for the software producer.

If dividing by that very large value for some reason, it is too easy to "truncate" to zero (not enough decimal places) and then use that for some division. Also high-order truncation could be possible if two billion records never envisaged in the product.

Why either filemanager/file-aid? With such a vast file, I'd think you'd want something that is doing only what it is asked and nothing else.

Anyway, vendor support or futile speculation. I'd go with the first.

Hi,

Couldn't able to trace the reason why filemanager was abending with S0C9. I thought I will give a try with IEBGENER and It ran fine. Assuming there was a problem with huge number of records, we replaced the utility.

Thanks all for your valuable time!!

Hello,

Suggest you consider using your SORT product. This will probably provide better performance than IEBGENER.

If you were just using filemanager to copy data then someone should be shot. Filemanager is a general utility - to just do a copy you should have used a dedicated copy utility - IEBGENER or ICEGENER. (OK they can do a bit more than simply copy but I would suspect that they are more efficient than Filemanager)

Yeah Nic, Even the CPU time was reduced from 5 Min to 11 Sec when changed from FILEMANAGER to IEBGENER.
