Sometimes it is necessary to increase the size of space used to hold CA Spool files. The spool datasets are defined with the CA Spool parameter SPOOLDS and it is possible to add new datasets without having to stop the CA Spool started task.
To add a spool dataset to CA Spool use the following procedure:
You should first determine whether the existing checkpoint file(s) can handle the amount of SPOOLDS space that you are adding before you add them.
Insure that the checkpoint files and spoolds files are allocated on low impact volumes. You can have multiple spoolds files on the same volumes. However it is suggested that the spoolds files be on different volumes from the checkpoint file(s).
You can add multiple SPOOLDS files at one time with a REINIT command.
