Is there a simple way to identify which libraries are taking up the most space? Also those with the most deleted records etc. And those which have not been used for many months. I want to chase down my apps teams and prove to them they need to do house keeping and not just keep asking for more resources, I know we have all been there so I am sure there are lots of good answers out there ! Thanks in advance.

    Some of this is available from display file description DSPFD *MBR -- deleted records, number of records. Last date used will probably be useless because objects are used when they are backed-up. Last change might be useful.

    If space is an issue (and when isn't it?), you should already be running RTVDSKINF and RTVDIRINF on perhaps a weekly basis. With those collecting periodic snapshots, you can track growth trends as well as determine areas that are taking large space volumes each week. Use PRTDSKINF and/or PRTDIRINF and/or your own queries to view many space statistics. If you're not already collecting basic space usage info, how do you know if "libraries" are even taking significant percentages of space at all? Maybe some developers are using IFS directories as storage for backups of their PCs or other stuff. Tom
