Tape mount statistics are available using SMF data, type 14 and 15. Although you would have to have agood dig around to find all of the information that you require.

Active data in my experience has always been something that is site specific. There is no hard and fast set rules to determine if data is active or not. Also, the criteria will change from application to application, so the best people to ask are your storage management team.
