My feeling would be to analyze your files daily increment and multiply that
out over a period of time and increase the file size for the period, you
should also adjust the number of records incremented and the number of times
incremented to reflect that analysis for additional periods.

As regards to having the time to stop the runaway program, this depends on
the threshold you set for notification and the attentiveness of your
operations and systems staff.

Should you require assistance with that I can be reached off line.

Fair enough, however if you have a runaway will you have enough time to see
the messages, analyze the problem and take corrective action? That depends
on the level of operations in your organization. IMHO, a great OS adjustment
would be "Max Increments in day." So we could allow some growth, but with a
governor.

Yes and No.  Your job will not bomb, same as with *NOMAX.  But the advantage
is you get the message recorded and now know that there is a file growing
beyond expected size.  We monitor for such messages so the DBA can analyze
the file usage and take appropriate action.

Isn't this almost the same as *NOMAX? If your file hits the limit then it
sends a message which is auto-replied to.
