So, objects in the IFS use more DASD that you would expect?  Interesting...

Maybe that would explain our problem - our DASD usage is growing at
(almost) alarming rate since we went to V5R1, and we have been running daily
DSPLIB's to find the culprit(s).  We have been unable to find any libraries that
are growing that fast, but we do have a bunch of stuff (spread evenly between
lots of little files and a few large files) we put into the IFS on a daily 

What would be the best way to find out how much DASD is being used by
the IFS?  Would running a RTKDSKINF and then a PRTDSKINF be the best way?
Or is there a faster way to get this?
