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
//CARDS DD *
The USEDSPACEMSG parameter is outlined in the CA Applications Quality and Testing Tools Symbolic Guide
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.
