I had my manager ask me about how we could go about finding out when objects were last used on the system. This would involve every library on the system.
From what I was told, there are objects on the system that have been out there for many, many years and if these objects have not been used for a long time that they most likely could be deleted off the system.
I believe the DSPOBJD command can be used, but how can I use it in mass for a library, considering a library can have thousands of objects in it?
Once I create a file that has this information I would put it into a spread sheet, most likely it will be many pages long, but at least my manger would have a visual listing of objects with the date the object was last used. Programmers or those responsible can determine if those aged objects can be deleted.
