We simply track the use of disk space. We maintain an AS/400 database of
library sizes by group. The groups are things like Internal, Free Space,
Spooled Files, Production Data, Test Data, Programmer Libraries etc.
Once a week we produce a report giving a detailed breakdown of each
group showing the size of each group and library and also the change in
size from the previous week. We also produce pretty Excel graphs showing
the relative sizes of each group and the size of each over the previous
four weeks. The graphs show the 11 largest actual groups and the others
are simply accumulated into "Others". One of the categories is Unknown.
Any newly created or unassigned libraries automatically appear in this
category. If Unknown is ever large enough to appear on the graph then
I'm not doing my job properly.

We don't keep track of uptime, nor do we yet have a tool for analysing
the IFS - currently it just gets lumped into Internal.
