This happened to me twice.
The first time it was an application error, where a journal was being
copied to QTEMP, but it was looping.
The second was when an ambitious accountant attempted an SQL cartesian join
on 2 very large files, again results were being gathered in QTEMO. I fixed
that by setting QQAQINI - STORAGE_LIMIT.

Subject: Sudden disk space takeover, IPL fixed it...
So, I had an interesting day. On V7R4 on my system. Normally sits
50% full for disk.Cloud
Got a few alerts saying storage was running out. Did a WRKSYSSTS and it
was at 97%. I couldn't find any jobs running, eating up CPU, etc... so I
just did an IPL.
Everything is back to normal now. At 50% disk again.
System storage . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 418759M
System storage used . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 48.34%
What the heck could that have been? A runaway temp job of some sort that
was cleaned up when I IPL'd?
