Issue/Introduction



PDT User Guide  R18 page 98, R19 Page 103 or R20 page 107 says maximum POOL limit = 20 MB but the POOL parameter in the START(DTR) Modify command can specify a value up to 9999. What unit is this? Does Xmanager convert that?

Resolution

Prior to R16 the POOL size was specified in 1000 byte increments, then it was changed to use MB. If the pool size is > 20 then Xmanager assumes it is specified as a multiple of 1000 bytes and converts it to MB. Therefore a value of POOL(2000), i.e., kilobytes, is internally converted to POOL(2), i.e., megabytes.
