A couple years back the firm I was with was testing JDE OneWorld, which was
ODBC based.  Due to multi-minute response times, possible performance
adjustments were examined ... *MAX1TB was one of them.  After changing the
files related to the test (always all LF for a given PF) performance
improved dramatically, though response time never became acceptable.  After
reading up on ACCPTHSIZ I changed all files in the system on a Sunday using
a PDM user option (thousands of files, some over 100,000,000 records, about
70 Gig overall).  OS/400 uses a different algorithm to access records when
using MAX1TB vs *Max4GB.  That algorithm is usually but not always faster.
You asked about mixing *MAXxxx methods for LF's relating a common PF ... I
can't see any reason to do that.
