Question:

How to check the usage of CA Workload Automation ESP files and how to increase their SIZE?

                                            

Environment

CA WA ESP EDITION 11.4 Z/OS

Answer: 

For VSAM files, include HISTFILE, JOBINDEX, RESFILE, INDEX, COMMQ, EVENTSET, JOBSTATS:

- Should use IDCAMS LISTCAT to check the usage of files

- For better performance, make sure not use any secondary allocation in INDEX and DATA of the file

- CYBESUT7 should run periodically (like yearly) to remove aged information from JOBINDEX file

- CYBESUT8 should run periodically (like yearly) to remove aged information from JOBSTATS file

 

For non-VSAM files:

APPLFILE: use OPER LISTAPTF to check the current usage, and run CYBESUT3 to increase

TRAKFILE: use OPER LISTTRAK to check the current usage, and run CYBESUT4 to increase

QUEUE: use LISTQ to check the current usage. If need to allocate a bigger one:

- Stop ESP master and proxies

- Rename the current QUEUE file to *.old

- Allocate a bigger one with the name specified in ESPPARM

- Start ESP Master with parm=QFORM and warmly start ESP Proxies

CKPT: use LISTCKPT to check the current usage, and run CYBESUT9 to increase.
