  • Report of all library sizes

    Hi,

    I would like to create a report that I could run at anytime which would display library sizes in bytes.

    I'm having trouble because DSPOBJD isn't an accurate size.

    Any help would be grateful.

    Thanks,

    Adam

    i'm sure there's a better way but i don't have time to look for it. DSPOBJD *LIB to an outfile read thru that file executing a DSPLIB to *PRINT and the final total has the correct size for the library + it's objects. you can parse out that data from the spooled file, etc.

        You can use the RTVDSKINF and PRTDSKINF commands to do this.

        As for why the object size is not showing what you expect:

        The size of the library object shown does not include the sizes of the objects in the library. The total size of the library, including the sizes of the objects in the library, can be obtained using the Display Library (DSPLIB) command with OUTPUT(*PRINT) or the Retrieve Library Description (QLIRLIBD) API.

        Your assuming that the library object contains the objects within the library, ie. an Object containing an object.

          Their used to be an IBM command PRTLIBSIZ that let you sort by size or name. And it also showed the largest object in each lib. Maybe it's still around.

            Or, just run the following command from an SQL Prompt (or add to your favorite Language)

            Code:
            Select Cast( Name as Char(15) ) as Library,  
                   Cast( Owner as Char(25) ) as Owner,   
                   Size
              From QSYS2.SYSSchemas
            Order by Name

              I don't think this is that practical. As your title suggests this is for ALL libraries. Our system here has 55TB cracking on it and displaying this report on demand for all the data and libraries would take some time. Thereby making the on demand idea a bit implausible.

              Settle for a nightly report that shows what happened since yesterday, or filter the library selection. If your libraries are labeled by function (eg TECH* for technical libs, OPS* for operator required stuff, CFG* for config stuff etc) then it will be easier to filter the report on a library prefix (TECH*) and get that info quicker than doing for all.

                could someone post the DDS for OBJL0500 for QUSLOBJ from qsysinc... I dont have it installed.

                PRTLIBSIZ is not IBM its from Ernie Malaga posted way back in 1991 on mcpress

                    yes, to say less worse ... And the D/L links are dead since they "reorganized" their site.

                      Just wanted to come back and upload this. It's a save file containing Ernie's original code from April 1991 issue of the magazine. (I hope I don't get in trouble for this!)
