Question:

My batch job received message: ISPP330 BDISPMAX exceeded 1000 displays in batch mode on panel LTDP2##0. How can I get my CA Auditor batch job to complete with the full output?

Answer:

Message ISPP330 is an (IBM) ISPF message indicating that the BDISPMAX threshold/limit has been exceeded.

In the CA Auditor Technical Reference, Appendix B contains sample JCL generated by CA Auditor for batch processing.  In the explanations for this JCL, for the SYSTSIN DD statement and for the (TSO/ISPF) ISPSTART command it states: 

SYSTSIN ddname

This data set is the input driver for the batch TSO session. These two TSO commands, needed to start batch ISPF/PDF with batch CA Auditor, appear directly after the //SYSTSIN DD statement:

PROFILE PREFIX(userid)

ISPSTART CMD(%EXAMBATX) BDISPMAX(1000)

ISPSTART

Starts ISPF/PDF and tells it to execute CA Auditor. The CMD operand tells ISPF/PDF to execute the EXAMBATX CLIST after ISPF/PDF is initialized. The BDISPMAX operand limits the number of panel displays your job can perform. This limit is set at 1000. Do not modify this number without first consulting with CA Auditor technical support. 

 

The CA Auditor batch process codes a BDISPMAX value of 1000. When you expect a large amount of output, you can edit and change this value to a larger (within reason) limit before submitting the job.

The SYSTSIN DD defined in the batch job contains the ISPSTART Command - it is this command that should be changed to increase BDISPMAX.  For example:

//SYSTSIN DD *   
PROFILE PREFIX(USER01)   
ISPSTART CMD(%EXAMBATX) BDISPMAX(2000)
