Sysprint blocking for DSNTEP2

Sysprint blocking for DSNTEP2
All,

Can someone tell me where to find details on 'User Group Requirement'
MR0419006957- Change SYSPRINT blocking in DSNTEP2? It's from an
announcement letter entitled, 'IBM DB2 Universal Database for z/OS, V8 -
Reengineered for e-business Leadership' to say it's been done in DB2 V8. I
want to know what it is. I've got access to IBMLINK if required.

Any clues?

Re: Sysprint blocking for DSNTEP2
(in response to Raymond Bell)
I looked in hlq.SDSNSAMP(DSNTEP2), the PL/I source for DSNTEP2 in V7,
and the attributes for SYSPRINT are hard coded to be FB LRECL=133
BLKSIZE=133.

My guess is someone wanted IBM to change the blksize to zero so that the
system could use a more efficient blksize.

Re: Sysprint blocking for DSNTEP2
(in response to Richard Humphris)
Hi Rich,

I guess I could have check that myself. D'uh. So I did and, as at V7,
we're the same as you i.e. hard-coded 133/133. Someone here has a minor
issue whereby when they write Sysprint it gets wrapped at 121. We're trying
to work out why we ain't getting the full 133, but not burning too many
'cells working it out as I think we've got bigger issues to resolve before
this one. Like whether to have a garlic or plain naan with my curry
tonight.

Actually that's not such a good comparison; very little is more important to
me than the type of naan. Hmmm, my little 'off-topic' light is flashing
again so I'll stop.

What, my little flashing light going 90 to the dozen? Probably. This final

Have a good weekend all.
