    Hi David

    It is a good question. And one to which I don't know the answer - yet. I
    can vaguely remember doing the research to come to this arrangement but
    it was many years ago and was probably R12 or possibly even R10.2. I
    haven't reviewed it since - it has just stayed in the offload job and
    now I am R17.

    I may well have distributed ""out of date"" advice. I shall review it -
    and if it is no longer effective - remove it.

    I do know that our offloads go to disk and then afterwards to tape. The
    technique certainly wouldn't work with direct tape writing. The intended
    target for the QSAM processing is definitely the offloaded journal
    archive not the disk journals.

    If my advice is an outdated ""red herring"" then I apologise.

    BTW. It wouldn't be BUFFERSTAT that shows the difference. You might get
    some information with QSAMTRACE=ON. I shall try it.
