STRASPBAL
Are any of you familiar with using these commands, the amount of time it takes to perform these commands, the requirements (restricted system or not, etc.), or where I can obtain some documentation on these commands so I can read up on them? I appreciate the info and help.

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

For my environment :-

I run TRCASPBAL once a week during my prime shift for 10 hours to gather statistics. I then run STRASPBAL with the *USAGE option later the same day when it’s quiet – on my system this hardly takes any time at all which I’m assuming means my disks are well balanced !

I run STRDSKRGZ once a week on a Sunday afternoon when it’s quiet again and on my system it takes under an hour.

All of the above is achieved via WRKJOBSCDE.

Runtimes and requireemnts on your system may well be different but all these commands do not need to run in a restricted state.

I just read the online help on the iSeries itself.

Hope that throws some light on the subject.

    You can read up on them by typing the command on a system command line and pressing the <F1> key. If a command must run in restricted state, it won't run when not in restricted state. That is, about the worst that will happen if you try to run it is an error message that tells you to run it in restricted state. The [help] text will tell you what you need to be worried about. Tom

    BTW, particularly for TRCASPBAL, it wouldn't make much sense to run it only in restricted state. It needs to run for periods of time during normal usage or it won't be able to gather the necessary statistics. Tom
