If you've got the time to put system in restricted state and run RCLSTG go
ahead (if you haven't run it in the last year it's probably about time
anyway), but if you can't take the system to a restricted state (or don't
have an idea how long it will run) and want to find out how much space it
would reclaim, instead submit  RTVDSKINF to run overnight (doesn't require
a restricted state), then when it completes run PRTDSKINF  *LIB    On 3rd
page check the line "Storage affected by RCLSTG" for an idea of how much
disk you would get back after running RCLSTG (and then clearing QRCL

PRTDSKINF  *LIB  is useful too to see how much space your libraries are
eating up.
I run RTVDSKINF    & PRTDSKINF  *LIB  each Sunday evening and leave the
report on a queue, so I can go back and see what libraries are growing at
what rate.

Subject:  storage

     I got a request from a co-worker for more storage room and was
looking at this Reclaiming Storage procedure. I do not think it has been
in a long time, not in the 7 months I been here. Is there a lot of storage
that gets freed up from running this procedure?
I was thinking of kicking it off tonight since it looks like it will take a
while to run.
Thanks in advance
