Question:

PDT User Guide  R18 page 98, R19 Page 103 or R20 page 107 says maximum POOL limit = 20 MB but the POOL parameter in the START(DTR) Modify command can specify a value up to 9999. What unit is this? Does Xmanager convert that?

Answer:

Prior to R16 the POOL size was specified in 1000 byte increments, then it was changed to use MB. If the pool size is > 20 then Xmanager assumes it is specified as a multiple of 1000 bytes and converts it to MB. Therefore a value of POOL(2000), i.e., kilobytes, is internally converted to POOL(2), i.e., megabytes.
