The IXX area for CA Scheduler may become full; this outlines the options for how that can be handled.
CA Scheduler may issue CACM335E when a the index area is approaching being full:
CACM335E CA-DATACOM AREA IXX IS 89% FULL
When a site receives an error CACM335E for the IXX area, there are a few options to consider or explore:
- Normally the database index and areas are defined with dynamic extend turned on. If the file becomes 100% full, Datacom will dynamically allocate a new file extent. To confirm that dynamic extend is turned on for the database, please run a DBUTLTY job as follows and review the output:
//CXXIXX EXEC PGM=DBUTLTY//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DCOMAD.CUSLIB Use the same STEPLIB as the MUF// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DCOMAD.CAAXLOAD //CXX DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DCOMAD.CXX And the same CXX dataset//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*//SNAPER DD SYSOUT=*//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*//SYSIN DD * REPORT AREA=CXX,DBID=430/*Look for "DYNAMIC EXTEND - YES" in the report for the IXX area to confirm that dynamic extend is active.
Check ISPF 3.2 to see how many extents the data set currently is using.
- For the IXX area you can get some reduction in space by running a DEFRAG.
See the Scheduler SAMPJCL member DBDEFRAG for JCL which will do this.
- The operating system will allocate up to 16 extents before you have to allocate a larger file and backup and load the database.
See the Scheduler SAMPJCL member DBRESIZE to increase the IXX and/or any of the data areas.
