IOF Problem Resolution
Problem C04
Previous Next
Description Error message "Partial List" returned when attempting to display a long list of jobs, groups or devices. The long error message returned by pressing PF1 (HELP) is "Only partial job list returned due to memory constraints"
 
Background IOF uses extended common storage (ECSA) to fetch infomation from JES2 to the IOF user's address space. The use of ECSA is very temporary. JES2 information is copied to user memory from ECSA immediately after it is fetched from JES2, and the ECSA is freed.


 

Solution #1 If possible, shorten the list of items requested by adding additional parms or filters. For example, don't attempt to fetch a list of all jobs in the system, but limit the list by specifying jobname, owner or destination filters on the IOF Option Menu.

One to eight generic jobnames can be specified in the JOBNAMES field of the Option Menu. In addition, a generic owner can be specified in the SCOPE field, and one to eight destinations can be specified in the DEST field.

Output group selections can be limited by destination, class, and several additional filters. Enter "G?" for the group selection menu, or "H?" for the held group selection menu.

If the problem is with devices, limit the types of devices being requested on the Device Options panel.


 

Solution #2 IOF has built in restrictions on the amount of ECSA it will attempt to get. Optional fixes are available to increase this limit to larger, less restrictive values. The REP statements can be modified to meet local requirements.
