That's interesting. What volume details would that be?

What have you tried so far? Anything?

Will you throw your toys out of your pram if you don't get what you want?

LISTCat looks at the system catalog. The volume information you want is held in the VTOC (volume table of contents). Presumably this is linked to your other post about running it continuously as a background job.

You can get the VTOC free space from panel 3.4 in ISPF. It must get it from somewhere using an ISPF service, but I can't easily see which one from the Services Guide. Does anyone else know where it obtains the information?
