One way would be to summarize the DCVFRESP and DCVVLCAP values for each volume (V records) in the storage group; once totaled the division gives you % free space.

MXI is not an IBM product. Try http://www.rocketsoftware.com/products/rocket-mainstar/rocket-mainstar-mxi-zos for more information -- Rocket bought MXI a while back.

MXI at Rocketsoftware is the commercial product. You can find the old, but still mostly functional, freeware version here: http://www.cbttape.org/cbtdowns.htm as files 409 and 410. I just checked that the SMS Storgrp display still works in z/OS 2.3.
MXI is one of the best products I have come across. Well layed out displays and a very good REXX API, which can be used in batch. Unfortunately I could not convince my latest employer to buy the commercial version.

Newer Windows versions can open a zip file directly. Then you can use drag-and-drop to copy the data file i.e. FILE410.XMI to another directory. Alternatively install an un-zipper, i.e. WINZIP or 7-ZIP. Once you have the unzipped *.XMI file, it can be transferred to your z/OS using whatever file transfer you have available. The transfer must be binary and the target dataset must be FB,lrecl=80 and blkzise=3120. I think that the blksize may be larger, but I would stick with 3120.
Then use the TSO RECEIVE command to generate a library - i.e ISPF 3.4, line command RECEIVE INDA(/) , then reply with the target libraryname.

Hello,

now i have this message :


 INMR901I Dataset CBT.V495.FILE410.PDS from SBGOLOB on N1        
 INMR906A Enter restore parameters or 'DELETE' or 'END' +        
da('XW40.MXI.FILE410.jcllib') unit(tso)                          
 INMR108I RECEIVE command terminated.  Trailer record missing    
 ***                                                            

 


and my library : XW0.MXI.FILE410.JCLLIB is empty :?

I think there's a problem in my transfert :

Did you preallocate the transfer dataset in z/OS (you should)? What are the specs for that dataset?
After transfer, browse the dataset, it must start with '&\INMR01' and end with '\INMR06 '.
