Extract and Replicat

Description

Use the ALLOCFILES parameter to control the incremental number of memory structures that are allocated after the initial memory allocation specified by the NUMFILES parameter is reached. Together, these parameters control how process memory is allocated for storing information about the source and target tables being processed.

The default values should be sufficient for both NUMFILES and ALLOCFILES, because memory is allocated by the process as needed, system resources permitting.

ALLOCFILES must occur before any TABLE or MAP entries to have any effect. The valid range of minimum value is 1

See NUMFILESfor more information.
