Tech Tip:  PROTSYM source code repository Space Utilization Monitoring feature 

08-18-2015 05:35 PM

Starting in release 9.1 the PROTSYM Source code repository has a new space utilization monitoring feature. You can now set a threshold for used space in the PROTSYM symbolic file. When you reach the threshold by adding more programs, you receive a warning message SYM070 that indicates what percentage of the space is used in the PROTSYM.  You set the threshold by specifying the USEDSPACEMSG parameter with the INITIALIZE or UPDATE parameters of the PROTSYM utility program  IN25UTIL.

 

The following message was triggered by the CA Intertest for CICS r 9.1 COBOL post processing program IN25COB2 when compiling the COBDEMO program

 

SYM070 JOBNAME=COBDEMO, USER=XXXXXXX, Symbolic file INTERT91.GA.PROTSYM is 80% full.

 

The space utilization monitoring feature is now available for CA InterTest for CICS, CA SymDump for CICS, CA SymDump Batch and CA InterTest batch release 9.1.

 

The following JCL initializes the PROTSYM file, sets the maximum programs to five and sets the space utilization to 75%

 

//LOAD     EXEC PGM=IN25UTIL,REGION=2048K  

//STEPLIB  DD DSN=INTERT91.GA.CAVHLOAD,DISP=SHR                         

//MESSAGE  DD SYSOUT=*                                                          

//PROTSYM  DD DSN=INTERT91.GA.PROTSYM,DISP=SHR

The USEDSPACEMSG parameter is outlined in the CA Applications Quality and Testing Tools Symbolic Guide

 

USEDSPACEMSG

Specifies the limit of used space in PROTSYM in percentage. When the limit is reached, the SYM070 message is issued. If the value equals 0, the SYM070 message is not issued.

Default: 0

Values: 0-99
