DSKBAL moves data from disks with more space used
to those with less space used.
Balancing is done during IPL and the system is
unavailable for this time.

We have added some disks to our hospital production system
and had DSKBAL calculate the time it would need to balance.
The SEVENTEEN hours were impossible to manage...
So we have now an "unbalanced" system.
Nice new function for non 7x24 shops, but no chance for us.

We have this info from our local CE. 
No documentation pointer available.

Regards,
Rudi

A system admin's life is a sorry one.  The only advantage he has
over Emergency Room doctors is that malpractice suits are rare.
On the other hand, ER doctors never have to deal with patients
installing new versions of their own innards!
