Hi to all,
An important question (for me)
Does the new version WF 7.1 go over
the 2 Gbytes limit for focsort.foc ?
It's amazing that WF has several significant performance and data volume improvements
but in the last year I use heavily the command "CNT.DST" and so I often go beyond the limit of focsort.foc with large partitioned
databases. Any news ?
Thanks in advance
What Platform are you on?
Focsort in 7.1 is stuck at 2 gig as far as I've been able to see.
However the following settings can help
SET AUTOTABLEF = OFF
If you're on MVS and have an external sort package available
SET EXTSORT = ON
I'm working on AIX 4.3 and WF 5.3.2
There is no way to go over 2 Gbytes
I have the same problem with HOLD files.
The limit of the file size on my server is
FYI - Just to confirm, I checked with inside resources, and the answer agrees with JG. 2GB is the limit of FOCSORT from 7.1 to 7.3. for FOCUS databases.
That suggests that post 7.3 the limit for focsort is to be raised.
Or is that just wishful thinking?
For now, I won't assume the limit will be increased. Submitting a New Feature Request is highly recommended.
