Does Changing SARINIT DBTHRESH=... Require a SARSTC Task Recycle?
Yes, the changing of SARINIT DBTHRESH=... requires a SARSTC task recycle.
The value used by SARINIT DBTHRESH is the value that was stored in the View database, at the time of the most recent SARSTC task recycle.
If a report is collected directly to tape (via SARINIT TAPECLSL=..., or is directed by MAXLINES to go to tape), then no data space is used, and no SARDBI23 messages would be issued.
If a report is recalled to disk, using SARBCH, it will fill up disk space using the same criteria as SARSTC, in noting database usage that is compared to DBTHRESH.
