Issue/Introduction

We are receiving the message below, all reports that can be purged have been, so what is the process to increase the size of the file queue?

 

Environment

Release : 12.0 14.0

Component : CA Spool

Resolution

The process to increase the size of the file queue requires a cold start so you need to create a backup of the spool contents before following the procedure.

Basically you need to increase the value of the parameter NUMFQES. MAXFSEQ may need to be increased to if it is not set to at least the same value of NUMFQES.

So, the procedure is:

1) Update the ESFPARM to increase the value of the parameter NUMFQES.

  • There is a formula to estimate the size of the checkpoint dataset based on the value of some parameters and number of spool datasets basically. See the link below for details:

  • The allocation of the checkpoint file is performed with a simple IEFBR14. A sample JCL can be found in the CBQ4JCL library member BQ4JALOC.
  • The new file is formatted when you start CA Spool with the COLD option.


2) Perform a full backup of the spool contents. See the link below for a procedure to be followed:

3) Stop CA Spool

4) Start CA Spool with the COLD option

5) Restore the files using the sample provided in the link above.
