Issue:

In the daily job APCDJREO, to add IMS statistics in PMA, you get an RC=8 and see the error message:

ERROR ON OUTPUT TO KSDSCST , KEY = I VMSGP134A ABTR
MSGP134A...IMS-Region, ABTR....IMS-Transaktion

and:

IEC070I 034(004)-220,IMSFPMA,APCCASSB,APCCCST1,737A,CAMAT
IEC070I KSDSCST,CAMAT.KSDSCST.DATA,
IEC070I UCAT.PRODUCT.ICF

Environment:
z/OS:  all releases
CA Mainframe Application Tuner:  all releases
PMA

Cause:

The KSDSCST VSAM file is full and there is no space left to insert/add any new records.

Resolution:

Run the job APCDJREO after you have checked and maybe changed the appropriate parameters in PMA.
See below which parameters are related ot the APCDJREO job.

Additional Information:

Check in PMA the values of the PMA Parameters (option 5).
At C1 (General CICS Feature Parameters).

There are 3 parameters that you need to check:

Delete SMF System data older than  : 12 01-18 months
Delete SMF TRX data older than       : 090 01-540 days
Delete SMF Interval data older than : 014 01-540 days 

The recommended values here are, for the months 12.
For the TRX data (transactions) we recommend to use 90 days.
And for the interval data (Which is most of the time 90% of the data) it's recommended to use 14 days.

The same for the IMS data. At the I1 (General IMS Feature Parameters) option, check the values:

Delete INFO System data older than  : 12 01-18 months
Delete INFO TRX data older than       : 090 01-540 days
Delete INFO Interval data older than : 014 01-540 days 

When you have these values, you should run the APCDJREO every week. This will give you 3 weeks of data in the VSAM files.

If you have changed the values in the C1 and/or I1 option in PMA, it's advised run the APCDJREO and there should be some space release in the KSDSCST file.

When there are many records deleted during the process it's also recommended to run the VSAM reorganization job APCCJRDR after APCDJREO is run.
