Actually I wanted the total number of objects to roughly estimate the time
needed to reach a checkpoint in SAVLIB *SYNCLIB processing. This is nearly a
7x24h system and I have to fight for every minute scheduled downtime...
I submitted the DSPFD today and it ran about 1,5 hours to tell me that we
have 83024 Objects on the system. I don't know exactly what it would mean to
synchronise these objects in SWA *SYNCLIB processing, but have heard of a
system that takes 30 minutes to reach SWA checkpoint for 30000 objects (of 
we'd only be doing SWA *SYNCLIB processing for the production libraries).
