Issue/Introduction

Cust asked us: 
 

We have had an issue in XCOM by which XCOMINQ file filled up--exceeding the maximum number of 3000 records. We would  need

to know all the "limits" that should be checked in XCOM--considering files and tables and configurable parameters etc.--that we could

control before this kind of situation happens.

Cause

-

Environment

OS : z/OS

Release : 12.0

Component : CA XCOM Data Transport for z/OS

Resolution

XCOM Level 2 Support was engaged for consultation. These are some important facts--we sent it to   cust:
 
 
a) One does not need XCOMINQ DD on TYPE=SCHEDULE jobs unless TYPE=INQUIRE is actually used.
 
b) XCOMINQ dataset has a hard coded 3000     record limit.
