various people have suggested other solutions to this problem:
e.g. Can't you just turn system auditing on and get this info?
e.g.While it would be interesting to see this in MI, you don't need MI to do
it. 
You could of course you QADBXREF to get all the files on the system and use 
QDBRTVD api to get the size. But I would love to see what MI could do.
e.g. What makes you think using MI will help, it would be of more use to
know
some of the internal undocumented features of OS/400.
etc,

before embarking on this let us get a consensus as to whether
the system already provides this in an efficient manner, i.e.
real time.

anyone?
