Hi Rob,
Good idea, but I'm not sure if the RTVDSKINF file displays the number of
objects, must check it out tomorrow. No, I don't consider the files in the
IFS as objects, at least not in the sense of as/400 object integrity, and
also not relevant to my current requirements. I wanted the total number of
objects to roughly estimate the time it might take to reach a
save-while-active checkpoint in SAVLIB *SYNCLIB processing, meaning
application and batch downtime, which we can't really afford on this system.
Currently we are backing the system up with SAVLIB *SYSDFN (no downtime).

Best,
Bernd
