List cat not working as good as File Aid

Postby kashmiri » Wed Sep 16, 2009 8:48 pm

Hi all,

I am trying to get all the information of a VSAM file through a JCL. If i do so in the File Aid, everything works fine. I mean i get all the information from about that VSAM. But if i run a batch program for the same using IDCAMS utility and listacat(All) command, i dont get all the information
e.g I dont get Used data space: of the VSAM file.

Can aybody give me a sort command or a utility, that will give me all the information of the VSAM file.

I appreciate your help as always!

This is the File Aid output

If you divide the HURBA by the HARBA you get 68.8666666% = 69% used, the same as File Aid.

Hello,

Multiple the allocated space by the used % you just calculated. . .
Hope this helps,

I am really blessed that you people answer all my queries.
I just have one doubt, as you said above to multiply the allocated space by used%, it comes to be 2070 in above example but the file aid result above is 2066. Is there any way the exact number.

I know i am asking for too much, but just wanted to know.


Thanks a million.

Hello,

Adjust the decimal places/rounding in the calculation.

3000 * 68.86% is 2065.9.
3000 * 69% is 2070.
Hope this helps,

You're welcome :)

Not to worry. Sometimes we get in a hurry ;)

It probably won't happen next time. . .
