Resolution

From a review of the client's SARPAC jobs:

 . The SARPAC jobs were processing about 2.5 million lines per minute.
 . The tapes contained about 2.8 billion lines per tape. 
 . The processing time, per tape, on average was about 17 hours. 

As SARPAC was processing as quickly as it could, given what resources it had, it was suggested to the client that they could consider setting a higher REGION value on the SARPAC step, or of having a SARPAC job being given a higher priority.
