M204.2757  Insufficient above-the-bar storage -- run terminated

The amount of above the bar storage required by the Online exceeds either the explicit MEMLIMIT specified on the job step EXEC card, or the default MEMLIMIT set for the entire system.

Under CMS, this message is issued if the required above the bar storage exceeds the Online's virtual machine size minus two gigabytes, the first two gigabytes of storage being below the bar.

System manager response: Decrease the value of the NUMBUFG parameter in the CCAIN stream, since the biggest user of above the bar storage is above the bar disk buffers, or increase the amount of above the bar storage available to the Online.

Under z/OS, the latter option involves increasing the explicit or implicit MEMLIMIT for the job. (The z/OS system programmer might need to get involved in increasing any system-wide limits.)

Under CMS, this would involve increasing the virtual machine size with a CP DEFINE STORAGE command. (The z/VM system manager might need to get involved in increasing the user ID's virtual storage limit in the user directory.)

Under z/VSE, this message appears when a user attempts above the bar storage using the SYSOPT2 parameter X'40' bit. This parameter is not supported for VSE.
