Intent: I want NUMRECS clause of IBM LOAD to be part of CA RC/Migrator's IBM Load default Model. 


More information: While loading data into 1) larger table 2) multi table tablespace (with limited resources in LPAR), it is good to include NUMRECS in the load card to efficiently allocate SORT work datasets by Db2. So, I want NUMRECS to be included in default IBM LOAD model of CA RC/Migrator. 



Please vote if you want NUMRECS to be included in default IBM LOAD models.

Completely agree with you Steve and thanks for the suggestion. 

RC/Migrator does not generate NUMRECS currently in Analysis output. It might cause some difficulty (or allocating sort work files inappropriately) while loading the larger data. This idea is about to include NUMRECS into IBM LOAD default model of RC/Migrator with the value from RTS. 

Validation while execution would be very nice to have as added advantage but negative side is is it will eat up CPU.

Base this on RTS from the source table. Not sure if it's possible but it would be great if there was a way to validate at execution that the value inserted into NUMRECS at Analysis time was correct or reasonably close.
