Question: 

Can the CA Datacom LXX (Log Area) file be extended, or can it have more than one extent?

Answer: 

Prior to version 15.0, the LXX cannot be extended. However, there is no problem with the allocation of the file taking multiple extents. The LXX is a standard PS file, and is subject to all requirements of PS files, such as the primary space allocation being satisfied in 1-5 extents.

Starting with version 15.0, the LXX can be extended using the DYNAMIC_EXTEND console-like command to perform an on-demand dynamic extend, just like the CXX.

As always, please contact CA Technologies support for CA Datacom if you have further questions.
