Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As QSECOFR or a profile with that authority, submit a job to run command RTVDSKINF.
This will build a file with all the information regarding object sizes.
I like to have this job run automatically on a weekly basis.
Once job is completed, use command (Interactively) PRTDSKINF.
You will be prompted for selection.
You can get summary and/or detail reports.
By size, by library, etc.

    RTVDSKINF also creates a file you can query: QAEZDISK So instead of using the PRTDSKINF you can download this file to XL to sort and filter. You can automate the Xfer to XL using the technique described in my blog:http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/beyond-excel/ References: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r2/ic2924/index.htm?info/cl/rtvdskin.htm

    RTVDSKINF will use some resource and may run a couple hours so run it during downtime. If you want to randonly check object size in certain libraries, use can use iNav Under My Connections, expand the iSeries you're working on Expand File Systems, IFS, then QSYS.LIB Right click on a library to view all the objects within Just like in windows explorer, click on Size to sort all objects.

    Use the following query if you have proper authority SELECT DIOBLI, DIOBNM, DIOBSZ FROM QUSRSYS/QAEZDISK ORDER BY DIOBSZ DESC
