The size of the EXTFILE is actually hard coded in the skeleton. Other than reducing the scan range (currently 3 and 7 hrs), we can recommend updating the skeleton. For the transaction scan, you can edit SARYSLIB members ARYINBX (currently line 90)

000032 // SPACE=(CYL,(15,10),RLSE),UNIT=SYSDA
We will see if we plan to make changes to be able to modify these parameters through other means.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Customers with large and highly active subsystems|
How should it work?
Add entries in TCz to customize the size of the EXTFILE rather than forcing customers to manually configure.
|Priority Justification||At the high rate of applying maintenance, this manual override could get skipped.|
|Customer Name||CDT - State of California|
