Screen shot of new disks balancing

Does anyone have a site I can go to that will provide me a screen shot of what it looks like when newly added disk drives have been added and in the balancing is in progress? I've been hunting around and can't seem to find what I need. I am putting together some documentation on verifying what it looks like after going into service tools, but I don't have access to the tool.

    Good question, and I can't seem to find a good answer to it. Browsed a few IBM manuals and no luck either. Did find a site that may provide some help IBM Operating System Disk Balancing Support

    AFAIK, there would be no significant difference in DASD views whether balancing is active or not. There can be somewhat higher I/O statistics, but that's somewhat dependent upon other activity in the system.

    For a new drive, of course, "% Used" will show relatively low and probably increase as balancing progresses. Whether or not it rises to equal older drives will depend on amounts of existing hot/cold objects. Other figures will likely be higher for new drives than older ones, but that again depends on competing activity.
