RE: Running a machine into oblivion



fixed

Assuming it has the authority; it will run until the system crashes with an
SRC code indicating it's full.

That will not clobber all of the user data on the system. There is still
quite a bit of data left in IBM libraries that can potentially identify the
customer.

If you: 1) IPL into DST and take option 2 to load LIC and initialize the
system, 2) finish loading the OS, 3) then run you program you'll get close
enough for most folks.

Subject: Running a machine into oblivion

Doing a system disk erasure.

I have a pgm that writes random data until the disk is full.

What value causes the system to shutdown or whatever when it reaches a
certain %age dasd usage level?
