A tool for quickly determining space utilization for CA-IDMS areas.
PTF'S For DBSPACE Rel 2.0 - CA-IDMS 10.X Compatible
When DBSPACE is run with a global DMCL and PROCESS=TOTAL, DBSPACE was attempting to process the scratch area just like any other area. If scratch data had been written on a page that IDMSINIT had initialized as an SMP, DBSPACE was interpreting the page's contents as space management entries, often finding values that are negative or larger than the scratch page size. This would cause an ERROR 040 message to be issued and cause the jobstep to issue a completion code of 8.
This PTF causes DBSPACE to ignore the scratch area. This allows PROCESS=TOTAL using the global DMCL to execute without issuing the error message.
Pages whose SMP is invalid will not be tallied for the Recap or Histogram reports, so the total pages on these reports will be less than the actual number of pages.
