Issue/Introduction

When adding 218 datasets to the AUDIT record, is there anything you should look out for in regards to performance? 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Resolution

The audit file is a wrappable file, meaning when it fills up, new data is written at the beginning of the file, overlaying the previous data. When using 1 audit file, 

TSS9209I AUDIT FILE HAS WRAPPED

Or, if using 2 audit files, when 1 file fills up, it switches to the other audit file to write new data and the following message is issued:

TSS9203I SWITCHED TO AUDIT/TRACKING OUTPUT FILE dddddddd

After adding the datasets to the AUDIT record, monitor how frequently the TSS9209I or TSS9203I message is issued. If it is wrapping/switching a lot more often than before, consider increasing the size of the audit file(s).
