Issue/Introduction

We are experiencing S878 abends with application jobs that are sending output to CA View/Deliver.

In these jobs we are seeing many (up to 80) DD statements being allocated to the View database.  

Are there any reported issues with this type of problem?

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CCS390 - CA COMMON SERVICES FOR Z/OS

Resolution

The 80 DD allocations were for a View database, which had a combined 80 database extents, which was being written to by CA Deliver. 

It was suggested that the client have REGION=nnM (in this case, 30M) on the EXEC statement, rather than REGION=0M. 

The client made the change, to REGION=30M, and the job in question ran several days as expected.
