Frankly the RTVDSKINF s*cks for finding the sizes of IFS objects.
I did find one tool that seems to do a pretty good job of looking at the
contents of the IFS.

At the below FTP site look for the "ifstool.savf".   The QRYIFSLIB tool is
the one to look at.

ifstool.savf         AS/400 R440 savf with executable and source for:
                  DELTREE   Delete a directory and all subdirectories
                                  and files in it.
                     CHGAUTALL Runs CHGAUT on all files in a directory
                                  and all directories and files in
subdirectories under it.
                  CHGOWNALL Similar to CHGAUTALL but uses CHGOWN command.
                     ATTRIB    Set/clear all PC attributes
                                  of an IFS file or directory similar to
the DOS ATTRIB command.
                                  \S option will accept a directory name
and apply changes
                                  to all directories and files in that
                  QRYIFSLIB Dump information such as file size, owner,
group, etc
                                  to outfile and sum directory size.
                  RNMIFSF   Rename an invalid file or directory name.
                     DLTIFSF   Delete a file from the IFS containing
invalid characters.
                     DSPLINK   Display the actual location that a symbolic
link references.
                     CHGCCISD  Change CCSID on one file or all files in a
