Question:
Why in TSSFAR we get a dismatch between index entries (324,464) and available acid (386,751)?

*** Security File Statistics Begins ***
Acid index entries allocated: 400,895 Acid index entries defined: 324,464
Next available acid number: 386,751 Last available acid number: 400,895
Answer:
Acid index entries allocated: 400,895 is the maximum number of slots available to index an acid.
Acid index entries defined: 324,464 is the current number of slots used to index acids
Next available acid number: 386,751 is the slot number which is the first available to index an acid.
Last available acid number: 400,895 is the last slot number available to index an acid.

Also, when the "Next available acid number" is closed or egal to "Last available acid number:" we are not at risk. See the technical document #000091824.
