Determining size of workunit dataset

Comments or questions specific to the features of ECL Watch

I'm running some large DISTRIBUTION functions and we have some concerns over the size of the output in the Workunit. Is there a way for me to tell the size of a workunit output? DISTRIBUTION does not give the option to save to a logical file. So as we move to the cloud, I want to make sure we limit the size of our outputs where possible.

I don't think there is directly.

However, I would recommend taking a look at the DataPatterns bundle that is now merged into the standard library (Std.DataPatterns). It provides the functionality of DISTRIBUTION plus much more.
