Question:

 

Why does the /DISPLAY,Q=ALL command show the queue files with minimal tracks available, but almost the maximum number if entries available?

 For example: REQ queue showing 000000 avail.

 

/DISPLAY,Q=ALL                                   

                                                 

 *** QUEUE DISPLAY ***  (3390)                   

 QUEUE  TRACKS  AVAIL.  INDEX   ENTRIES  AVAIL.. 

                                                 

 SCR    000500  000497    -                      

 ACT    000010  000003    A     0000660  0000660 

 DQT    000050  000047    -                      

 PRE    000015  000014    N                      

 PRN    000050  000047    A     0008085  0007927 

 PST    000015  000014    N                      

 RDY    000050  000008    A     0001485  0001485 

 REQ    000050  000000    A     0002310  0002304       >>>>>> 000000 tracks available

 TRL    000300  000283    A                      

 

Answer: 

 The count shown as tracks available for status queues (REQ, RDY, ACT, PRN, PST, and PRE) indicates an amount never used since the last COLD start of CA Workload Automation CA 7.

As always, please contact CA Technologies support for CA Workload Automation CA 7 if you have further questions.
