    Posted 01-30-2017 02:38 PM

    Hello,

     

    In LCSF batch mode, I am trying to get a longer record length(500) for the output, however, I am limited to only 255. Here's the DD statement from my job:

     

    DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
    UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(1182,50),RLSE),
    DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=4000,DSORG=PS)

     

    The output's DS info is here:

     

    Device type . . . . : 3390
    Data class . . . . . : **None**
    Organization . . . : PS
    Record format . . . : FBA
    Record length . . . : 255
    Block size . . . . : 23970
    1st extent cylinders: 9
    Secondary cylinders : 50
    Data set name type :


    SMS Compressible . : NO

     

    The command I am trying to get the output is "LCSF INCOMPLETE"

     

    Any idea how to have a longer record length in batch mode for LCSF command?

    Hello,

     

    Firstly please pick "CA Workload Automation ESP" under the category next time, then all ESP users can see your questions.

     

    I tested here and got same result.

     

    I suspect it's a limitation for the ESP batch output.

     

    I will double check and get back to you. If it's the case, you can post an idea for possible enhancement.

     

    Thank you,

     

    Lucy

    Hi Prem,

     

    I have verified that 255 is the max record length for ESP batch output. Please feel free to post an idea.

     

    One thing I want to point out, that if the output is longer than 255, actually it will continue to next line. 

     

    Hope this helps,

     

    Lucy

    Thank you Lucy. The idea is to have the entire block of message for each job in a single record so that it would be easier to parse.
