James, Have you thought about modifying the process that reads File1 to submit multiple jobs? You could jobs that only process a set of distinct entries - say one job processes entries for customer A and another processes entries for customer B and so forth. To do this type of thing one way is to put a logical over File1 that is sequenced in the order you wish to process. The process reading File1 could then do the following. 1. Position File1 to its starting point with, in RPG, SETLL. 2. Read Flie1 by key until end of file. This will cause your program to only process those entries you want it to process. If you are up for rewriting the process you could also use embedded SQL to select and sequence the entries a job is to process. -----Original Message----- From: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of James R. Newman, CDP Sent: Thursday, October 14, 2004 9:32 AM To: Midrange L Subject: Setting parms in CL for PF I've got a 9406-600 running V5R2 and have to run a large update job about once a month. File1 is a sequential, non-keyed PF containing about 18 million records of updated "current" information. File2 is a keyed PF "master" with 18 million+ records that will be updated from File1. File2 has 1 logical. A friend suggested changing some of the OVRDBF parms to help processing go faster, such as FRCRATIO and NBRRCDS. Any suggestions on how to set these parms? For that matter, any suggestions on how to speed up the update process? TIA. James R.
