z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Parameter type

Keyword, optional


Use the SPIN parameter to specify that the output for the SYSOUT data set is to be made available for processing:
  • Immediately upon unallocation; or
  • At the end of the job.

If you specify the output to be immediately available upon unallocation, you can also specify for the data set to be capable of being spun via operator command, when the data set reaches a certain size, or when the data set has been active for a specified time period.
