Issue/Introduction

We are receiving message "RANDOM FOR OLREROG" in the DEFRAG report. We want clarification for this message. Does this mean I have to run a OLREORG?

Environment

Resolution

This message "RANDOM FOR OLREORG" is just the label that is associated with a DSOP value of 4. This does not mean you have to run a OLREORG, but you have the ability to do so in the future.

This table shows the message you will see based on the DSOP #

DSOP # Message
DSOP 0 =  "NO RECLAMATION"
DSOP 1 = "RANDOM"
DSOP 2 = "WRAP"
DSOP 3 = "CLUSTERING"
DSOP 4 = "RANDOM FOR OLREORG"
DSOP 5 = "SEQUENTIAL FOR OLREORG"

 

Additional Information

Notes:

  • The current documentation (as of November 10, 2020) does not mention the labels associated to each DSOP #. This will be updated in either the Data Area Space Management Options (DSOP) or the Directory (CXX) Report documentation.
  • These labels/messages can be seen when running a CXX Report or a DEFRAG Report
  • In order to run a OLREORG, a DSOP value must be a 4 (recommended default) or 5
