The following fields are provided on this display:
History File Name
The history file name to be allocated. If this name is not enclosed in single quotes, then the current TSO prefix is used as the high-level qualifier.
Note: If this display is shown as a result of having specified a history file that does not exist for a Fault Entry List Move or Copy line command, then the History File Name field is not available for input, but shows the Move/Copy target history file name.
Primary Space
The number of cylinders to allocate as the primary space. The default is 10.
Secondary Space
The number of cylinders to allocate as the secondary space. The default is 25.
Fault Entry Prefix
A one to three character prefix assigned to all fault IDs in this history file. The default is F.
Data Set Type
The type of history file data set to allocate as one of the following:
  • LIBRARY (PDSE)
  • PDS (Partitioned Data Set)
The default is LIBRARY.
Minimum Fault Entries
The minimum number of fault entries that must exist in the history file before automatic space management occurs. This number must be between 25 and 9999999. The default is 100.
Note: This field is only shown if the Data Set Type field specifies LIBRARY.
Maximum Fault Entries
The maximum number of fault entries to maintain in the history file as a number between 25 and 9999999. The default is 100.
Note: This field is only shown if the Data Set Type field specifies PDS.
