Question:

Does CA QuickFetch create temporary datasets? If so, where are they located and how can we control the size and allocation?

Answer:

CA QuickFetch does not create any temporary datasets. However, there are specific DDNAMEs that are created dynamically for datasets being managed by CA QuickFetch.
The typical DDNAME that will be evident is QFSnnnn, this only is seen when a dataset is first managed by CA QuickFetch.
This DDNAME is used to allow CA QuickFetch to allocate the file to be managed.
